Devotions from Judy’s heart

One day I had just listened to Carrie Underwood’s amazing song of “How Great Thou Art” on YouTube. It just gave me goose bumps and the verse spoke to me, “When Christ shall come with shouts of acclamation and take me home what joy shall fill my heart.”  Shortly afterwards I went for a prayer walk  and it was very cold out. When I reached the half way mark and started home again I was battling a strong wind and longed to get home. Even the smell of the smoke from our chimney was drawing me. I thought of my eternal home and how I am over the ½ mark too and going homeward. I had such great joy thinking about my “real home” and asking the Lord to bless the rest of my journey here on earth.  I had just read from Ps. 31:19, “Oh how abundant is your goodness, which you have stored up for those who fear you.”  Let us keep our eyes on things above even as we live in the now. He has so much stored up for us and whatever we have to go through on earth is nothing compared to what awaits us.
