Devotions from Judy’s heart.

All of us can attest to the difficulty of waiting. When we were little as the grandkids, it seemed like time stood still as we waited for Christmas to come. Or like Kurt as an adult, waits to hear if he has the job in Chicago. Or like a spouse who waits to hear the report of the recent MRI. It is not easy to wait but I believe God does something deep in us as we are in that waiting time. We realize in a new way we are not in control.  In Is. 30:18 it says we are blessed as we wait for the Lord, as He is gracious to us and shows us compassion. For me it becomes a matter of trust for even though we don’t know the outcome, we know He is loving and so worthy of our trust.  Often it is later that we realize that our very hearts have been changed in that time of waiting.   David says in Ps. 27:14, “Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.”  Let us be courageous and trust and not fear for all is in His hands.
