Today really is National Two Different Colored Shoes Day. Who comes up with these fun days? hahahaIthaha
I know I could celebrate this holiday for a couple months putting various combos from my closet together! Not only different colors but different styles: heels, flats, wedges, tennis shoes, boots and sandals.
We have all kinds of reasons to wear shoes: work, weddings, church, exercise, play in the snow, and wander on down to the beach – just to name a few.
But have you ever thought about the Shoes of Peace? They are part of the armor of God that Paul talks about in Ephesians 6. When we put on our shoes of peace, we are trusting that God is in control and handling our situations – even when it seems like things aren’t going the way we want or moving as fast as we would like.
In Michael W. Smith’s song, WayMaker, he sings the words:
“Even when I don’t see it, You’re working
Even when I can’t feel it, You’re working”.
Trusting even when we don’t see it. Even when we don’t feel it.
Just wearing those Shoes of Peace knowing God has it all under control does something to my whole being. I feel more relaxed when I intentionally wear those shoes.
So as we celebrate the day with our different colored shoes, let us not forget to include the spiritual ones that give us peace.
And when you do, I promise your heart will be filled with much more brightness and sunshine than just the color on your feet.
