You’ll Have To Get Your Feet Wet

get your feet wet

” It was the harvest season, and the Jordan was overflowing its banks. But as soon as the feet of the priests who were carrying the Ark touched the water at the river’s edge, the water above that point began backing up a great distance away at a town called Adam, which is near Zarethan. And the water below that point flowed on to the Dead Sea[c] until the riverbed was dry. Then all the people crossed over near the town of Jericho.” Joshua 3:15-16

I used to run my to-do list for the next day through my head, when I woke up in the middle of the night.

  • Make the bed,
  • Empty the dishwasher,
  • Do laundry,
  • What workout am I doing?
  • Do I need to take anything out for lunch or dinner?

Now when I wake up I pray.

Last night I was awake for hours. So I prayed about everything and for everybody that popped into my head. I kept praying that God would tell me what I needed to do with my blog.

That’s when I felt like God told me to just shut up and listen. Maybe not in those words, more like Adele, take a breath. Stop talking to me and listen. Take a walk with me.

One thing I need to tell you is I visualize stuff, I don’t care if you think I’m nuts here. But last night I could see myself walking with Jesus through a stormy time and then along an the edge of the ocean.

The waves gently slapping against the shore and receding. And then we sat in the sand.

“This is nice and I’m not even getting my feet wet!”

And my eyes were opened, I need to get my feet wet!

God asked the Israelites to take a step into the river when it was overflowing at its banks. That must have been terrifying! Have you ever stood at the edge of a rushing overflowing river? Yikes. But they had the faith to step in and God kept them safe, let them all pass on dry land.

After a couple of weeks of fearful stops and starts to write a blog post, I feel God asking me to take get my feet wet, so to speak. 🙂

What about you? What is one step is God asking you to take today? Get your feet wet, it’s the only way to enjoy the journey.
