(Day 1: As Sure-footed as a Whitetail) Walking down a mountain is always harder for me than going up. If the mountain path is steep, I tend to go down sideways. Not having been blessed with good balance, I take extra care during all of my walks. The spindly-legged whitetail deer can leap and spin and land on their feet almost every time. David speaks about the deer. “He makes my feet like the feet of deer, and sets me on my high places.” In other words, God gives us the sure-footedness, stability, and strength of a deer.
