“Today, I woke up with the picture of me walking with one foot on the sidewalk and the other foot on rough ground..” ~priest

God has a plan.  He really does.  We each have a job to do in His plan.  I suspect much of what God has planned for you and I is impossible in our own strength.  

Maybe as Abraham was going to be the father of nations at 100 years old seems a likely as the plan God has for your life.  The thing that really thrilled God about Abraham was His faith.  Abraham knew the impossibility of the task and chose to believe in the future, regardless.  God by Abraham's faith produced the seed that impacted mankind forever.  

I look at the plan God has for me.  I only understand a tiny piece of it, because that is all He has revealed.  It doesn't make it any less important. But it does require faith believing that God knows what He is doing and positioning me to fulfill His wishes.  I was created for His purpose and not mine.

Today, I woke up with the picture of me walking with one foot on the sidewalk and the other foot on rough ground. I think it speaks to my not being fully in the groove with God. I don't know how that can be, but I think that might be the case. So I begin the quest of evaluating what needs to be done in my life to get both feet on the sidewalk.

How is your footing? Are you walking with one foot on the ground? Ask and you shall receive. Seek and you shall find. Knock and keep on knocking….

"Without being weakened in faith, he didn’t consider his own body, already having been worn out, (he being about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah’s womb. Yet, looking to the promise of God, he didn’t waver through unbelief, but grew strong through faith, giving glory to God, and being fully assured that what he had promised, he was also able to perform".~Paul

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".

  1. Hi Archie;

    Your picture is everyone’s picture, that is why we are human. The American Indian recognizes this as well.

    “All things in the world are two. In our minds we are two, good and evil. With our eyes we see two things, things that are fair and things that are ugly…. We have the right hand that strikes and makes for evil, and we have the left hand full of kindness, near the heart. One foot may lead us to an evil way, the other foot may lead us to a good. So are all things two, all two.”….Eagle Chief

  2. Thank you Ich. Wisdom can be found whenever one looks. Thank you for Eagle Chief’s thoughts. Although I know nothing of their faith if different from mine, I am 1/4 Indian. Likely, much could be gained from a better understanding of that part of my heritage….

  3. Hi Archie;

    It seems to me that the Natives’ observations about humanity and the Great Spirit(God) are of interest. Don’t forget there were civilizations, some quite advanced on this hemisphere thousands of years ago.

    The problem is much of it is unknown due to destruction over the ages.

    Being a 1/4 native yourself, it may be of interest to you to see what makes 1/4 of you tick. 🙂

    Being that as it may, you may be eligible for treaty status, in which case you would receive money from the government and casinos. That is what I call a retirement plan. Me, I was born in Europe, which disqualifies me from these little entitlements. 🙂
