Length of Days - Search for Freedom

Monday, April 25, 2011


I wore white shoes yesterday, Easter Sunday. Why is that important given the glorious resurrection of our Savior Jesus Christ? The “old rule” was, no white before Memorial Day or after Labor Day. Now, we see white and “winter-white” any time of the year. That is the significance of Easter! The old rules of death and hopelessness were wiped away by the blood of Jesus on the cross.

For me, white shoes meant the purity of His sacrifice! The old has been made new, and we, as Christians, can choose to embrace a new life, free from the limitations of the past. We are not to hide our joy, but sing praises to His name. We are to get up and give our testimony, any day, any season! We are to dance in our white shoes, to the glory of God! Let us pray:

“Father God, creator and sustainer of Heaven and earth, Holy is your name! May your kingdom come in your appointed time so that your will may be done here as it is in Heaven above. For this day, may we be bold enough to dance in our white shoes before the world who sees only rules: politically correct pronouncements that try to hush the rejoicing of your children. On this day-two of Resurrection, the day when the new church could have hidden and disbanded, we turn to the resurrected Christ, your Holy son, Father God, as our redeemer and beloved. We sing His praises and dance to the song of the dove, a song of acknowledgment of Him, your blessed son in whom you are well pleased. Forgive us when we have remained silent for fear of ridicule. Silence serves only those who do not believe. Give us courage to sing, for the night is long, and dance, for the way is the path of rejoicing that leads to you. In the precious name of your son, Jesus, the resurrected Lord, we pray. Amen”
