Shabby Boots

what is it about these boots that makes me love them so much?

they’re shabby

scuffed up

and so comfortable

something about these boots makes me feel good when i wear them

*

but i have to admit that i feel a little embarrassed when i wear them in public

sometimes i wish i hadn’t worn them

i wonder what people think about them

about me

*

i guess my shabby boots say alot about me

i’m far from perfect

i fall short of God’s expectations all the time

even when i think i’m doing good . . .

“I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out.” Romans 7:18

yep, that’s me

it’s all shabbiness compared to Jesus’ perfect life

*

i’m so thankful that God doesn’t judge me by what i wear or what i do

he looks past my imperfections

forgives my sinful heart

and loves me for who i am in Christ

*

redeemed

forgiven

his child

*

 God’s endless mercy and amazing grace covers me

 like a fresh blanket of snow

*

so i’ll keep wearing these shabby boots

striving to walk in his footsteps.

things i’m thankful for:

1. a fresh blanket of snow

2. shabby boots

3. perfect footsteps to follow
