these shoes were made for walking
A new year is a time to set out afresh, new directions, new journeys. We’ve started the year with the Israelites, at the end of their journey through the desert and at the beginning of the journey into a wonderful new land. Before the new journey, before crossing the River Jordan, no doubt they checked if they were ready for the journey. Moses points out that their feet haven’t swollen, and later God says that he made sure their sandals didn’t wear out (Deuteronomy 29:5). When God sends us on a journey, he equips us for it and protects us on it!
How are you getting on with your new year’s resolutions? I’m greatly enjoying the book Alex recommended Ordering Your Private World.
As I mentioned on Sunday, Street Church needs your support. There are always requests for shoes and sandals, last week for a men’s size 42. If you’ve any spares, please leave them in the Street Supplies boxes in Church.
