Painted into a Corner

You have painted yourself into a corner.  Mistakes and misjudgments have brought you to this place. As you look out from this isolated corner you feel like you want to break free and run, but you are afraid of ruining the paint job.

The natural mind says, “Wait until the paint is dried and then walk out. You have plenty of time to make things right.”  The danger with this way thinking is that in the wait you could die emotionally and relationships could be put in jeopardy.  Today, right now, stand up and begin to walk back across the still wet painted floor of these past mistakes ignoring the problems your obedience will create.

To those who are spiritually minded they will not see your paint spotted shoes and your footprints on the floor as something negative.  They will cheer you on because they will see God at work in your life.  The paint on your shoes and the tracks you leave behind will be a reminder to the rest of us of your willingness to do the right thing no matter what the cost. A life without these kinds of footprints is not an honest life because each life that moves deeper into the things of God will always leave behind the evidence of that journey.
