After my neighbor let me borrow a pair of hers, I ordered some Yaktrax so I could walk more easily on ice and snow. They are like little tire snow chains for your feet. You secure the Yaktrax around your snowboots or regular shoes, and they provide all the traction you need to walk.
I’m fearless now! All those dangerous spots of ice on the sidewalk matter little to me now. I tell my friend that people can do anything if they just have the right foundation, the right footing. The thought emboldens me to live with more courage as I move into things that require faith. I have the sure foundation of Jesus undergirding every step.
I think of Psalm 94: When I thought, “My foot slips,” your steadfast love, O Lord, held me up.
