Devotions from Judy’s  heart

It’s hard to believe that a small item like a computer can be a treasure one minute and a frustration beyond words the next. I have also written lately on change and how we grow through it….but it isn’t always fun!  After about 8 years, I have a new computer but it is nothing like my old one. I’m sure one day I will get use to it and love it  but right now that is only in the future tense!  It’s hard to give up the old as everything worked so well and was familiar. Spiritually, the Lord can ask us to give up the old also and to enter into the new He has for us. Sometimes we are like the children of Israel and complain and long for the leeks and garlics of Egypt. But He says in Isaiah 43:18 “Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing: now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? ” Perhaps at times we must ask for eyes of faith  to perceive that what He is doing now is so much better than the old. Let us be welcome the new things He has for us.
