Yesterday I had to miss a meeting with other Christians and those exploring the Christian faith and I was so annoyed. The session was looking at the Bible and I had done some homework in advance! I had found this quote from Tony Robinson. BBC1’s Heart and Soul programme;” The Bible isn’t a history book or a poetry book or a cookbook, even through there are elements of all these things essentially in it. Essentially it’s a faith book…It’s the story of God who believed in his people,, the Israelites, and how they learnt to believe in him, discovering him as their lives and adventures unfolded. In its pages you can always see the people’s faith, or lack of it, even though you can’t see their God. And if you are looking for him, mostly you can see footprints, marks in the sand, saying God was here.”
This got me thinking about a remarkable song from Leona Lewis about God walking with her. Footprints in the sand, so here it us with the lyrics for you to enjoy. Do you see or feel the footprints of God in this way?
