Beautiful Feet

I enjoyed some "me" time the other night (see post below on how important that is)...this time, in the tub. I love a good hot bath occasionally and I felt this one deserved since I wasn't feeling all that well. I lit the candles, got all settled in the tub, full of bubbles, and ahhh...relaxed. I put my feet up out of the water and noticed them, with some intrigue. Now, my feet aren't really anything to be noticing. I actually think they aren't that great, in fact, I think they are kind of fat. Aside from all that, I noticed how pretty they looked. Isn't that odd, since I just explained how un-pretty they were? :) The candlelight shown at the perfect place and I actually thought for a second I had cute feet. :) hee hee. It immediately reminded me of the scripture from Isaiah and also repeated in Romans.

"How lovely on the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who announces peace and brings good news of happiness, who announces salvation, and says to Zion, "Your God reigns!" Isaiah 52:7

"How will they preach unless they are sent? Just as it is written, "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news of good things!" Romans 10:15

I had a friend of mine from a small group who loved that verse and she most definately had cute beautiful feet...both beautiful in the sense of tan, nails painted, long, cute feet and then in the sense of scripture and bringing good news!
The picture depicted in Isaiah is breathtaking. Imagine running to tell people good news, peace, salvation...how to often am I not running, but only walking or waiting for them to come to me. It was an incredible reminder of what I am to be using my beautiful feet for.
Thank you Lord for the reminder of what you gave us feet for. May my feet travel the length you have determined telling others about You. May they be quick when you say RUN! May they ponder each step when you say SLOW DOWN! May they be still when you say WAIT!

In Christ-
