High Heels on a Rocky Path

Jun 17

by Victoria Robinson

Girlfriends, picture your favorite high heels. Now imagine the trepidation of walking on a rocky path in those shoes. All you would think about as you manuever along the treacherous path is the potential stumble. Spiritually speaking the way to keep from stumbling is to use common sense and sound judgement. King Solomon tells us to always keep them in mind so that we will walk safely and never stumble.

Common sense and sound judgement are found in the Word of God. Therefor we must know the Word thoroughly in order to avoid walking on a rocky path and stumbling. The book of Proverbs is a rich resource for insuring you walk safely. Delve into it right now so that you will live a long and beautiful life.

Dearest girlfriends, I pray we would take heed of His Word and walk safely in His ways.

My child, use common sense and sound judgment! Always keep them in mind. They will help you to live a long and beautiful life. You will walk safely and never stumble … ~ Proverbs 3:21-23 CEV
 
He will not let you stumble and fall; the one who watches over you will not sleep. ~ Psalm 121:3 NLT
 
… I will lead them beside streams of water on a level path where they will not stumble … ~ Jeremiah 31:9 NIV

Taking a Spill in “High Heels”

Jan 18

High heels are so much fun to wear. They are so feminine and can really elongate your legs and make you feel pretty. Sometimes all it takes is a cute high heel to lift a girl’s spirits up. On the other hand, some “high heels” can cause us to take quite a spill. This would include the “high heels” of pride and haughtiness.

Just because high heels can cause you to trip and fall, does not mean you can never wear them. You just have to wear the right ones. My adorable husband, Rick, knows that a sure way to make me smile is to compliment my shoes by saying, “Cute shoes!” What “cute shoes” does the Word of God encourage us to wear? Try a pair of “humble high heels”. Being a lady who practices humility will ensure you do not trip and fall.

Dearest girlfriends, let us kick off the “high heels” of pride and haughtiness in our life and slip on the “high heels” of humility.

Pride ends in a fall, while humility brings honor. ~ Proverbs 29:23 TLB
 
Pride goes before destruction, and haughtiness before a fall. ~ Proverbs 16:18 NLT
 
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. ~ Philippians 2:3 NIV
 
Humility and the fear of the LORD bring wealth and honor and life. ~ Proverbs 22:4 NIV
 
Before his downfall a man’s heart is proud, but humility comes before honor. ~ Proverbs 18:12 NIV 
 
When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom. ~ Proverbs 11:2 NIV
 
Since God chose you to be the holy people whom he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. ~ Colossians 3:12 NLT
