TRYING TO FILL YOUR DADDY’S SHOES

YOUR DAILY MOMENT; Inspirational thoughts to begin your day
February 3, 2018

A few days ago, I was looking through some old photos of our daughter. When she was little, she loved shoes: anyone’s shoes. There was one picture of her wearing her daddy’s shoes.   You can imagine a three-year-old girl in a size fourteen man’s shoe!  As much as she adored her father, there was no way she would ever be able to wear those shoes.

We often speak figuratively about filling someone else’s shoes.  It means we admire someone so much we want to embrace that person’s ideals. We strive to live in such as way as to please that one we admire.

God would have us try to fill His shoes!  He wants us to embrace Who He is and try to live in such a way as to bring honor to Him. We will stumble, just as my daughter stumbled trying to walk around in her daddy’s shoes. God knows we won’t always live up to His expectations, but He is a loving and forgiving Father Who asks us to follow, as best we can, in His steps. The more we seek to live a Holy and Consecrated life, the closer we will come to filling His shoesWe will never achieve that, but isn’t it a lofty goal?

Today, strive to live in such a way as to try to fill our Father’s shoes and bring glory to Him.
