Peacekeeper or Peacemaker
How often do you sweep your house? We have two large dogs and two large boys..annnnd their friends… in our not so big house. So, it seems like I am sweeping often…but I will admit it is not often enough. Most of the time I am in a hurry(or maybe a little lazy). So I sweep the kitchen, sweep the dirt and hair down the stairs, sweep the landing, and…then…( I am so embarrassed)…I sweep the pile of dirt and dog hair right under our shoe rack. About once a week, I clear the rack and pick up the pile of dirt and dog hair that has accumulated. Its a lot! I know I shouldn’t do it that way…but I do!
This phenomenon reminds of the beatitudes in Matthew 5…seriously, it does! Look at what Jesus says in Matthew 5:9;
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.
Jesus states that those that seek peace are blessed because they will be called sons of God. Sign me up! That is what I want to be: blessed and to be called a son of God. But what exactly is a peacemaker? What am I exactly signing up for?
A peacemaker is distinctly different then a peacekeeper. Look at that again…a PEACEMAKER is DIFFERENT than a PEACEKEEPER. A peacekeeper runs from conflict, does not engage in conflict for the purpose of not doing anything to upset anyone. Peacemakers actually enter into the conflict to actively pursue peace, solutions, and reconciliation. Do you see the difference?
An example of this would be the proverbial rug(or shoe rack) that problems get swept under. A peacekeeper would continue to go on about their business; cleaning the house, walking on the throw rug in the living room. Day after day they would walk on the rug, noticing each time they walk on the rug they might need a little more energy to walk over the hump of dirt under the rug. Soon, they will notice that they will need a climbing rope to get over mound under the rug. They never complain, they never speak of the mound, they simply just adjust their routine so that they do not disturb the huge dust ball that has now turned into a mountain.
The Peacemaker, on the other hand, will approach the same rug and partake in the same business of cleaning the house. They are walking on the same throw rug in the living room. But, when they notice that they stub their toe on the small round bump of dirt under the rug, they instantly throw the rug up to see what is causing their toe to be stubbed. They move the rug with the intention to see what the problem is and to get rid of the problem; so that they do not stub their toe again.
The psalmist in Psalm 34:14 implores that we need to:
14 Turn away from evil and do good;
seek peace and pursue it.
There are actually action steps that we need to take: we need to turn from our fleshly desires( to make it easy and just sweep it under the rug) decide to do good, actively look for occasions where there can be peace and then actually do something to achieve that peace.
God is the ultimate peace maker. He actively entered into the conflict of the broken relationship between man and God, as a fleshly human, and became the sacrifice so that we could be reconciled back to God. A peacemaker, from a Biblical perspective, is one who is actively trying to reconcile broken relationships of people to God and to one another.
So are you more of a peacekeeper or a peacemaker?
If you have a relationship that is broken or problem that needs a peacemaker, we would love to pray with you.

This video is of some of the children that are staying in the guest house at the Cure International Tim Tebow Hospital in the Philippines. They have casts on because they are going through the first phase of the Ponseti Treatment for clubfoot. For the next 4 to 6 weeks these children will get a series of casts to fully correct their clubfoot. They will then be fitted for their boots and bars that have been donated by On His Path.

Because these children and their families come from remote villages, they are unable to travel each week to get their castings done. That is why Cure International has a guest house for them to stay in during this process. Once they are fitted for their boots and bars, they go home with their parents to continue with treatment. They are currently treating more than 30 cases of clubfoot and by the end of they estimate completing 200 clubfoot cases this year.

Treating clubfoot is a truly team effort and On His Path believes that supporting the family is a number one priority. That is why On His Path provides funding for parent counselors to help with the emotional, physical, social, and spiritual needs of the family. Today, we praise God for the guest house and pray for the parents that care so much for their little clubfoot warriors. Most of all we pray that every single person impacted by clubfoot at this guest house will see that the gift of clubfoot treatment is a gift from God.
"Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of Heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadow."- James 1:17

If you would like more information on how you can come alongside this ministry to help eradicate untreated clubfoot while sharing the saving Grace of God through Jesus Christ, please contact us at annie@onhispath.org 100% of your donation goes to those in need.

On Saturday, On His Path partnered with Harmony Bible Church to sort, pack, and inventory clubfoot shoes to send to developing countries. We are so thankful for their help, without the help of the body of believers we would not have been able to get all the shoes prepared to be shipped…it simply would not have happened.
Ecclesiastes  4:9-10
9 Two are better than one,
    because they have a good return for their labor:
10 If either of them falls down,
    one can help the other up.
But pity anyone who falls
    and has no one to help them up.
I am so thankful that I am surrounded by people that would help me up.  I was hoping to sort and pack 300 pairs of shoes, but in actuality we packed almost 700 pairs! Thank you for coming alongside us on a Saturday morning and helping us spread the Gospel in such a tangible way!

Taste and See

Chances are, if you have been to my house (and have been a guest during dinner time) you have been persuaded into trying some type of new food. Whether we are serving artichokes, avocados, salmon, tilapia, sauerkraut, plums, mango. I will always get the same response “ I don’t like…..(fill in the blank)”.
This isn’t exclusive to guests in our house, but also members of my household. Did you know that my husband never tried a BITE of cheesecake until he was an adult?!?!? The insanity!!! He never tried it because he did not think that cheese and cake should ever be in the same sentence. Can you imagine?!?! Never…even…tried…it.
Guess what? Since he has tried it, it’s his favorite and he will often talk about the regrets he has for never tasting it in his childhood. Seriously, it’s a regret of his!
My oldest son insisted that he HATED apple pie. Why? Because his dad did not like cooked fruit so he did not like cooked fruit. He had never even tried apple pie until his mother-in-law (who makes the most delicious homemade apple pie with a homemade crust that I can not even begin to describe) insisted that he try a bite. Now, for every birthday he most certainly requests apple pie from his mother -in -law!
When someone’s response is they don’t like what we are serving, our response is always “well, have you tried it?” Almost always it is “no”. Our question is always…how do you KNOW you don’t like it, if you have not tried it?!?!?
I think that this is what the psalmist in Psalm 34 is saying. But they also take a step further and make promises to those that trust in the Lord. They promise those who trust in the Lord to be blessed.
Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good!
Blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!-Psalm 34:8

You may think that you know who the Lord is because of something someone has told you, or some thought that you have. Just as someone unmentioned didn’t think that cheese and cake should go together. I get it, sometimes it doesn’t sound logical or appealing. But my question to you or to someone you may know (who is struggling with the idea of following the Lord)…have you tasted it? Have you tried it? Have you tried it for YOURSELF?

I have tasted and see the that the Lord is good. Psalm 34:4-10 records exactly what I have and continue to experience.

4 I sought the LORD, and he answered me
and delivered me from all my fears.
5 Those who look to him are radiant,
and their faces shall never be ashamed.
6 This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him
and saved him out of all his troubles.
7 The angel of the LORD encamps
around those who fear him, and delivers them.
8 Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good!
Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!
9 Oh, fear the LORD, you his saints,
for those who fear him have no lack!
10 The young lions suffer want and hunger;
but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.

So before you or someone you know says that they don’t believe in God or don’t want to follow Him, I would ask if you have tried Him for YOURSELF?
I am praying for you today. I am praying that you will seek Him on your own to taste and see if the Lord is good. If you find yourself struggling with belief….please message us. We would love to walk beside you and help you test this challenge.

No Words

No words. I have no words as I scroll through news feeds and see the desperate pictures of individuals pleading to get on a US bound plane from Afghanistan…desperate to the point that they are willing to DIE to try to get hope of freedom and safety. That is kind of an oxymoron…dying for safety. But that is the state of this world…right now. And I have no words. I have no words about our leadership, what we can do individually, or collectively. I do have some truths to cling on to:
1.While this surprised me, it did not surprise God.
He is:
Omnipresent. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.- Colossians 1:17
Omnipotent: Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh. Is anything too hard for me?- Jeremiah 32:27
Omniscient: Even before a word is on my tongue behold, O LORD, you know it altogether.
-Psalm 139:4

2. No president or leader will save us, safety can only come through Jesus Christ. We can see this truth throughout the book of 1Kings and 2 Kings.

3. Jesus died for our safety. He died for our Salvation so that we can be reconciled back into a right relationship with God. If you believe that, then you are secure in your future.
For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. – Romans 8:38-39
4. And I am comforted by the fact that the Holy Spirit intercedes on my behalf when I don’t have the words.
Likewise, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. - Romans 8:26
So, today, I lean on the Holy Spirit to help me in my weakness.
If you find yourself in a place of weakness and do not know the safety and security of Christ, please message us. We would love to pray with you.

Beautiful truths to remember, Ms. Annie. Thank you for the reminder. 💙👣💙

It makes my heart break...the things going on today. 😥

Can you remember when you were a kid and skinned your knees? I can remember having skinned knees… that were skinned…ON TOP OF BEING SKINNED!!! I am not sure if I was clumsy or a daredevil. I’ll go with daredevil…but really knowing I am not coordinated at all…so you can answer that question yourself!
I can remember getting a skinned knee…crying a little bit..and then taking off on my big wheel for the next adventure. Could you imagine getting a skinned knee now?!?! Oh my! I would be in REALLY bad shape if that happened today!
It seems as an adult, our wounds aren’t necessarily on the outside, but that we have these deep wounds within us. It can be from something we did or perhaps something someone else did. Regardless…the wounds are there. Sometimes they are hidden waaay underneath our skin or sometimes they are right.. at..the… surface; just waiting to seep out.
When we are little and get injured… our wounds turn from a source of hurt and sorrow to a source of pride and accomplishment. Our tears soon turn to excited words such as “you should have seen me jump….”or “ I crashed so hard that….” We have people sign our casts or gather around to listen to the story about our battle scar.
This is exactly what the Psalmist is saying in Psalm 30:11 about our emotions.
You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; you have loosed my sackcloth and girded me with gladness- Psalm 30:11
I can look back at my life and see times when I was in deep mourning, but God’s goodness and faithfulness turned that time into rejoicing because of who He is and what He has done for me.
God promises this sort of results with our wounds that lay under our skin. God reminds us that He can heal these wounds:
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds -Psalm 147:3
I love this psalm. Especially where it says “binds up their wounds”. I can just picture God carefully, thoroughly, dutifully, and lovingly using His hands to mend our brokenness…giving careful attention to detail.
You might see these words on the page and be questioning how God can heal your emotional wounds. He can fill you with the Truth while He helps us shuck the lies that we have been told and that we have believed.
He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.- 1Peter 2:24
So, when we talk about our wounds and scars, we can dust off our knees, jump on our big wheels and brag about how God is healing our wounds because by Jesus’ wounds we have been healed!
If you find yourself today, with skinned knees…there is good news! You can be fully healed from your wounds through Jesus Christ
If you need prayer, please message us.

MERCY POOL
Do you find that when you read scripture, sometimes it can be perplexing? The account of Jesus healing the man at pool in John 5: 1-9 is an account that has had me scratching my head. It is not because Jesus healed the man that surprised me; after all there are many accounts of Jesus’ miracles throughout the New Testament. No, it’s not what Jesus DID in this account, but rather what he SAID:
‘ One man was there who had been an invalid for thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him lying there and knew that he had already been there a long time, he said to him, “Do you want to be healed?”’-John 5:5-6
What a curious question to ask?!?! This man, along with numerous other people who were in desperate need of healing, waited patiently for a time when the pool would heal them. Of course, he wanted to be healed!
Have you ever wondered why Jesus asked that? Now this is just my opinion, so please take it as that. It appears to me that Jesus is wanting to know the condition of this man’s heart and also to let us clearly know the condition of his heart. Jesus gets an answer to what this man’s heart condition is:
The sick man answered him, “Sir, I have no one to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up, and while I am going another steps down before me.” John 5:7
Do you see that? The man’s heart is full of excuses and blames others for him not being healed. He says he has no one to help him at a very specific time. He also blames others for rushing in before him.
Now, that may seem pretty harsh (I think it sounds pretty harsh) after all, this man is PARALYZED, how is he expected to do anything on his own?!?!
But that is not the point. I thought it was the point, but I don’t think it is the point. This man is at a pool called Bethesda. In Aramaic this means “house of mercy”. So this paralyzed man has been sitting at the side of the house of mercy waiting for someone to help him get into the pool to be healed. He has been sitting there with a bad attitude, blaming many people for why he is not healed. But then look at what Jesus does:
Jesus said to him, “Get up, take up your bed, and walk.” And at once the man was healed, and he took up his bed and walked. John 5:7
The point is: the man did not need the pool. He did not need other people. He did not need to have a “good” attitude. All he needed was Jesus.
While this man was truly sitting at the pool in the house of mercy, I am wondering if you find yourself setting next to a pool waiting for someone to help you in? Do you feel helpless? Do you feel paralyzed? Do you feel like you have come to the end of your rope? Have you blamed others for your brokenness? The fact is that we ARE broken…every..single..one..of..us: just as broken as the man in this Bible account.
But there is good news! You can jump in the pool of mercy that is Jesus Christ our Savior. This is your decision, and your decision alone. If you have questions about this pool of mercy, please message us. If you need prayer, please message us. We would love to pray with you.

There are some beautiful things that I get to see in this world.  I love living in the Midwest. There are long, slow paced roads that dust my car with gravel. Some people may find that less than charming, but I find it comforting and I have much joy with the simplicity of my life.  In the summer season, I get to see rows and rows of corn growing on every drive I take. The other day I was driving, and I looked over in the sea of corn. And then I saw this one corn stalk standing tall…waaay above the other corn stalks. It stood out as a strong, noble stalk.  It instantly reminded me of Romans 12:2:
 “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect”.-Romans 12:2 
 I quickly turned around and pulled over to take this grainy picture of the lone ear of corn..its not the best picture, but I hope you see what I see:
 I see this stalk of corn not being like the other stalks of corn, I see it reaching high so that it can feel the sun FULLY. I see the corn stalk FLOURISHING.  I see the perseverance of that corn stalk. I see that corn stalk clearly set apart. It seems as though it is doing anything it can do to just spend all its energy to grow with the goal to reach the sun!
I really want to be like that corn stalk…growing towards the Son even if not everyone around me is. I want to have my focus on being transformed by the renewal of my mind and to be able to not get caught up in the noise of the world.
I find myself running between the desire to be accepted by the world and accepted by the Kingdom of God. And all that does is brings heartbreak.  Scripture says you cannot serve two masters, you have to choose one. But it’s a costly choice. On one hand you are damned to hell and on the other hand you are damned on Earth. Its temporary here. We are eternal beings that will spend eternity somewhere. We are meant for more than just this stinky world. I chose to be damned on Earth with the confidence of the reward in Heaven.
I don’t want to be conformed to this world, I want the lies that I have been told to be destroyed, I want to be confident in the will of God, and I want to grow in my relationship with the Son. It’s  hard, it sounds scary, but He will give us the peace that is promised in Philippians: 
“And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” -Philippians 4:7
If you find yourself in this same predicament …look around. There are other corn stalks growing above the crowd. You’re not alone..seek them out…they will cheer you on.
If you want prayer or to talk about the reward of Heaven, please message us.

Plans Changed
Have you every started the day with a perfect plan only to have all your plans crumpled up into a ball and thrown into the garbage? You know, the kind of day that was never on your radar?
I can imagine that how it is during the 20-week ultra sound; for a clubfoot mom. Before they even took a step into the ultra sound room, they were imagining their gender reveal party! They had thoughts of having all their friends and family over one afternoon to celebrate the gender of the baby. I can imagine they anticipated having their friend bake cupcakes filled with frosting that is gender specific…wondering when they take a bite out of it “will it be pink…or blue.?” They thought of handing the ultra sound results in a sealed envelope to the local party supply store; giving careful instructions that the clerk would not… even… give… a… hint of what the gender was. Or maybe, they had the conversation in their head about the gender specific-colored balloons that would be put in a box wrapped with pretty paper and bow easy to untie so to make the moment of reveal seamless and exciting.
Mind you, this was ALL before they stepped into the ultrasound room. This was ALL before the ultra sound technician bit her lip and tried not to give the mom eye contact. This is ALL before the technician slipped out of the room to hurry and get the supervising doctor. This is ALL before the mom knew she was going to be a clubfoot mom. Then…all plans...are stopped…crumpled up…thrown into the garbage.
While many expectant mothers are thinking about their gender reveal party and anticipating the 20-week ultra sound, most are not thinking about clubfoot. Clubfoot forms around the 18th-20th week of pregnancy, so this foot deformity is primarily found during this ultra sound. It’s usually a surprise to the mom and most know very little about the foot deformity and treatment. As soon as they step out of the ultra sound room, they start fervently searching the internet for information and communities to talk with about clubfoot, instead of searching ways to reveal the gender of their baby.
I have heard countless stories of confusion, doubt, fear from moms that are expecting or have had a child with clubfoot. At On His Path, we have a desire to get as much education materials out to the families, communities, medical staff, and government officials, in developed and developing countries. We have this desire so that babies born with clubfoot can be promptly and effectively treated with the Ponseti Method of Treatment while providing peace and hope to the parents. Even though the diagnosis of clubfoot might seem as though it is a crisis, I guarantee you that every single parent that goes through the complete journey of clubfoot treatment comes out stronger than they ever though they could possibly be.
We know with education; we can help turn this situation from what may seem as a crisis to a simple cure. That is why the founders of On His Path, John and Jean Michell, along with MD Orthopaedics financed this feature length documentary about the Ponseti Method to treat clubfoot. Please watch it and share it. Together we can help all children get access to the proper treatment for clubfoot.
Not only do we want parents to find hope in the Ponseti method of Clubfoot treatment; we want them to find Hope in God through our Savior Jesus Christ.
Today, at On His Path, we pray this for all clubfoot families: May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope. Romans 15:13

My husband is so inventive, mechanical, handy. I on the other hand…I am not. Seriously! There are many things that I am not allowed to do, and it’s not because my husband is bossy but rather for my safety and others. It’s the truth…I have tried to argue this fact because I want to feel fiercely independent, but I have come to the conclusion that I am not mechanical or handy. Its ok..don’t feel bad for me. I have accepted it and eventually, once you spend time with me, you would accept this fact also.
Despite the fact that I am not mechanical, I have managed to accumulate a FEW of my OWN tools. I feel so impowered by having my own electric sander, my own power washer, and a hot glue gun. I LOVE saying that I have my OWN tools might be weird, but it keeps me from trying to mess with my husband’s tools…sort of.
Just in the past few weeks, I purchased a new tool…it’s a battery-operated weed whacker! I think the official name of it is a string trimmer, but weed whacker sounds so much more fun (probably one of the reasons why I am not allowed to use all the tools we have)! I love just going around our yard and landscaping and whacking all the weeds we have…it is much easier than the tedious and extremely time-consuming way I usually pick weeds by hand.
It looks nice when I am all done whacking weeds! All the weeds are gone! But in all actuality, the weed is still there, you just cannot see the sprout of the weed. It is still busy being a weed; tucked under the dirt.
This exact situation is what Job is talking about in 14:7-9
7 “For there is hope for a tree,
if it be cut down, that it will sprout again,
and that its shoots will not cease.
8 Though its root grow old in the earth,
and its stump die in the soil,
9 yet at the scent of water it will bud
and put out branches like a young plant.
Just as there is hope for a tree to sprout a young plant, there is a good chance that a weed will grow up again if the whole root is not dug out. It may look like the weed is gone, but it is still flourishing under the ground.
My challenge is to pray about the root of your sin. Do you find yourself angry? Anxious? Do you find yourself struggling with the works of flesh as Galatians 5:19-21 states? I know personally, when I struggle with works of the flesh my root problem tends to be fear of man and lack of trust in God.
The good news is, if you find yourself struggling with works of the flesh, we have a Savior that is available to ALL that can take your sins and struggles from you. Why do we need a Savior? Because as Romans 3:10 states, no one is righteous, no, not one.
If you would like more information on why we need a Savior please message us, we would love to pray with you.

On His Path
Today is washing day at On His Path!
We inspect, sort, wash all donated shoes we receive, in order to get them ready to pass on to our partners in developing countries. All while praying for each family represented by theses shoes we are praising God for the donors and praising God for the family that will receive them. Always praying that each person that have been impacted by clubfoot will know the saving salvation of our Lord through Jesus Christ.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18: Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
