Meaning of Barefoot In Grace

Barefoot - Bare and raw flesh standing in transparency before God
In - Surrounded and enclosed 
Grace- the free and unmerited favor of God, as manifested in the salvation of sinners and the bestowal of blessings.

When I think of being Barefoot in Grace, I think of being in front of Jesus with all of my flaws, stripped down to show my true self. Uncovering my heart & giving it to Jesus because he loves me just the way I am.  Being stripped down of everything that was a part of you, things that you held so close to your heart. Maybe things you have prayed for but the answer was what you THOUGHT wasn't in your favor but actually, after making it through that valley, it was BETTER. It's about being stripped of all things flesh and standing bare(foot) and undeserving of God's grace, mercy, and love. 

Its a hard process of digging deep into your soul and looking into your heart revealing parts of yourself that you need to work on, to strip down and let Gods Love and Grace flood through changing your heart and starting the healing process. 

The best part is that in the middle of the process of being barefoot in grace is that you are surrounded and wrapped in the loving arms of our Lord, making you feel safe in his unchanging love for us. When you are bare(foot) in front of HIM you are free of judgment and hate. He is waiting for you with his arms wide opening saying that he is ready for you to turn back around child, to be forgiven and made new. 

There is no amount of shame, depression, grief, and sin that can not be forgiven, just because you are in a valley right now doesn't mean that's where you have to stay. There is always hope, even in the pain and shame you are covered in His everlasting mercy and love. In the valleys, our story is created, because of the power of testimony, you can help pull someone from the fire.  

I have always loved being barefoot, It’s fun free feeling to be jumping in puddles barefoot feeling the water under your feet. Jesus wants us to be free. (“So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” John 8:36).
