Devotions from Judy’s heart
Things are not always the way they seem outwardly. We can misjudge if we only go by outward appearances.
Each day I try to find time to go for a walk alone and spend that time praying as I walk. The other day Al and I both went for a prayer walk about the same time, only in separate directions so we wouldn’t interfere with each other’s time alone. But a neighbor saw us as he was driving by and asked if we had had a fight. That’s how it looked. I told him we were both on a prayer walk and he just laughed.  God sees what is, and the more we grow in Him the less concerned we are for what others think. What matters is our life before Him, as it says in Prov . 5:21 “For a man’s ways are before the eyes of the Lord”.  When we are doing His will , we don’t  have to justify, but “be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.” I Cor. 15:58
