Yes, I threw it away....

James 1: 21-22

Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you.
Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.

I was at my mom's for a few days last week with Olivia and had taken my shoes off in the car for a bit when I realized I felt a draft....

I was shocked to look at my foot and realize that my sock was hardly functioning anymore!

I just had to take this picture as we were driving down the highway! (I promise the sock was clean in spite of the "holes!" and I promise I wasn't the one behind the steering wheel....)

As I think about my spiritual life, I am saddened to say that I often reach points in my life when, like my foot, I discover that I am running on "little to no support!"

When I start to feel the "draft" of doubt, fear, insecurity, and other negative emotions, it is not unusual to discover that my "soul" is not being protected like it should be.

Maybe it's my prayer life that has weakened.

Maybe it's my time in the Word.

Maybe it's just finding time to be still and simply KNOW that He is Lord!

Maybe it's my actions not matching what I'm learning as I do read the Word.

Whatever it is, I have to make a decision to "get rid" of whatever is holding me back in my walk with Lord and in the confidence that comes from knowing Him as my personal Savior. And then I need to cover myself in His Presence......

My "holey" ness truly can hinder my "holiness."

Determined to wear new spiritual socks tomorrow so that my walk matches my talk!

Your words tonight were just what I needed to hear. Praying you and I both find our socks tomorrow.

Girl...SERIOUSLY! You amaze me at your ability to bring a lesson, and a GOOD one at that...out of a holy sock! Loved it!
