Simply feet

I have been having kinda a rough day; a day where I find myself less patient, more irritable and full of anxiety about situations I have no control (sounds like I am assuming I ever had control). I have no real reason, just using "the day" as my excuse, but then I open to read my Bible and this picture pops into my mind. Why this picture? So, I start reflecting on why God might put this simple picture of my daughters precious feet in the front of my mind.... I searched under feet, but that doesn't seem to be what I am to find, for I still can't seem to avoid the feeling in which God has placed on me over this picture. I stop and spend some time in prayer, about my day, about my anxiety, about this picture and I receive an answer: it's the path! I can't see the path right now. I know it is there, I can feel it strong and steady under foot, but I can't see ahead and it's making me foggy. He's not unsteady, He knows my path, He has His plan underway for His glory, but here I am impatient, irritable and anxious because I want Him to give me answers now. I turn to:
Psalm 25:4 ~ Show me your ways, O Lord, teach me your paths; guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.
This was what I was meant to read, but there was more... the entire passage of Psalm 25 was calling me and as I read this I again find myself in prayer, but this time asking God's forgiveness for my selfish desire and asking His help, His will in the path ahead and so a simple picture of two precious feet are placed on my heart so that I can feel His peace.
