Devotions from Judy’s heart

We have been given so many promises that the Lord will never leave us and is always present, waiting and listening to our cry. Heb. 13:5 says “for He has said, I will never leave you nor forsake you.”  Tuesday on our way home from seeing my dad, Al stopped for a haircut and I sat in the car. A man next to me went into a store and left his poodle dog (with red bows in her fur) in his vehicle. His dog was frantic and she barked and jumped up and down the whole time. She was so anxious and it was as if she thought her owner would never return.  She carried on until her owner returned when she finally quieted down. Are we also like that at times…so anxious and wondering where God is in our circumstances? Do we trust and believe the Lord is near even though we may not “see” him. Let us quiet ourselves and rest in Him. He is so worthy of our trust.  “In quietness and in trust shall be your strength.”  Isaiah 30:!5
