The Welcome mat outside your home is for more than decoration. It has a purpose, you are to use it to wipe the dirt off of the bottom of your shoes off so you do not track the dirt into the home.
My mother was Japanese and before you entered her home you took off your shoes before you entered her home. In biblical times there were servants who greeted guests and washed their feet. Jesus washed the feet of His disciples.
John 13:1-17 (NKJV)

Today, I’m grateful for the peace that surpasses all understanding.
. . .
While the disciples of Jesus were frightened and troubled by the stormy wind and the raging sea, Jesus was enjoying a sound sleep. Why? Because he had peace of mind. The storms and the raging sea could not overwhelm Jesus instead they obeyed him!
I’m enjoying God’s peace virtually in every facet of my life. This is because whenever the thunder roars or the storm rises to trouble me, I remember that Jesus himself is my peace and that he has given me his peace.

Which means I have not been able to stand on my foot causing me not only pain but I am walking off balance. My spiritual foundation is Christ. It is on this Rock that I stand. My feet are my physical body’s foundation and something as simple as as a thorn or piece of glass in my foot gets me off balance. So what are things that get me spiritually off balance? Anything that I allow to take my focus off of Jesus. To stay balanced I must meditate on His Word and let…
