Devotions from Judy’s heart

Al just had a birthday and I have a milestone birthday coming up in a couple weeks. The clock keeps ticking away and we are all getting older, even though we have not given permission for that to happen.
As we drove to Brainerd the other day there was a gorgeous flaming red tree in the midst of other trees that had barely started to turn their autumn colors. It stood out above all the rest in its brilliance and was like a sign post to me. Even as we are aging, we can be a light and flame to others that can cause them to seek the Lord. Yes, autumn comes to all of us and we will die, but we can shine in a brilliant color to bring Him glory. The Psalmist said in Ps. 71,”Do not cast me off in the time of old age forsake me not….O God, do not forsake me, until I proclaim your might to another generation, your power to all those to come.”  Our last days can be our best days, if we allow His Spirit to shine through us and proclaim His power to those who follow.
