They were one size too big for her but almost new, so she thought they'd work if she stuffed them with tissues.
One afternoon while wearing them, she found herself struggling with questions about her individuality. That's when she had this epiphany: "Stop trying to be someone else ... you can never fill someone else's shoes!"
"Ah, it was a freeing moment," she said.
Do you ever wish you were someone else: younger, older, married, single, taller, shorter, with different gifts or abilities?
Scripture tells us to imitate godly behavior, faithfulness, and devotion (1 Corinthians 11:1; Philippians 3:17) but we're not called to imitate other personalities or covet other people's lives.
God has designed us "one-of-a-kind" for His purposes.
So slip on YOUR shoes today and ask God to show you what He's specifically prepared for your gifts, personality, and sphere of influence (Ephesians 2:10).
