When I was born my mother looked me over and shook her head. “My baby’s feet are too big. How will this girl ever get through life with such large feet?”
Growing up I had bigger feet than Dad, Mom, sisters and brothers. When I took my size 7 feet to Africa, I hiked to many villages taking medicine and the Gospel of Christ. Over the years, going barefoot or wearing flip-flips caused my feet to get bigger. They spread to a size 8.
What my mother saw as a handicap became a help.
As we go into the new year, let’s take those things we think of as negative and try to find the positive in them. “Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable- if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things.” Philippians 4:8
A hindrance could be a blessing in disguise.
Leave the negative behind in the old year.
Blessings and Happy New Year,
