The Next Best Thing To Ruby Red Slippers


Okay, so we already established that I’m not one for change, but in life, change is inevitable.  AND, while change might take some readjusting,  not all change is bad.

I give you exhibit A:

Beautiful ivory wedding shoes whose fate was simply for one special day.  When lo and behold, their bride had another plan.  A plan to extend their life and give them the chance to experience additional parties for years to come…


It was love at first sight.  These shoes were made to be danced in.  And if I’m really honest, I’ll probably wear them around the apartment on days when I need a little pick me up.  How can one not feel instantly better while wearing magenta shoes with bows and rhinestones?   

See?  Not all change is terrible.

Fortunately, when it comes to the unknown, not only is God a faithful constant, but He also promises to lead us and guide us.

When I arrived at college, I was terrified of the unknown.  During my first month, I stumbled upon a verse that has since become a constant companion to me in the midst of uncertainty.

“I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them.”
Isaiah 42:16
Even in the midst of uncertainty and transitions, God is with us and He is faithful to guide us along the uncharted path.
