Emily Is Lacing Her Boots

My friend, Emily Cummins, out of Central Christian in Las Vegas, is my guest blogger tonight and I’m REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THAT SO I’M GONNA TYPE IT IN CAPS!  Without further ado, a 1-minute post on why she’s lacing her boots:

Often, we establish road markers to make the path in front of us clear–we’re memorializing what’s behind & claiming what’s ahead.  Jeremiah 31:21-22 says, “Set up signposts to mark your trip home. Get a good map. Study the road conditions. The road out is the road back…how long will you flit here & there, indecisive? How long before you make up your fickle mind? God will create a new thing in this land: a transformed woman will embrace the transforming God!”  Markers are really our way of celebrating, growing, moving forward & becoming more of who God made us to be. They’re symbols of transformation & reminders to stay rooted in what you believe.  I think transformation is all about putting your stake in the ground, claiming victory over your past & anticipating the path ahead. It’s about embracing the road you left behind, but not forgetting what brought you to this point in time. It’s a choice to lace up your boots, brush the dirt off your face & declare yourself to be the beloved warrior God already designed you to be.  Personally, I’m setting up my markers…and I’m lacing up my boots.
