Devotions from Judy’s heart
It’s been said that one picture is worth a 1,000 words. I found that true as a picture was put on Facebook of our friend, Grace, up and walking with the aid of a walker after her knee replacement yesterday. My heart just sang as I saw how well she was doing and the picture was proof of it. The Lord gives us so many pictures and symbols that are worth more than 1,000 words.  A vivid picture comes to mind of Luke 15 where the lost sheep is found and there is so much rejoicing. I’m sure we have seen pictures of our loving Shepherd carrying that lost lamb, and felt His arms of love enfolding us when we have lost our way.  Or when our life seems so stormy and out of control and we see with hope-filled hearts, the Lord raising His hand to calm our storm. God speaks to us in so many ways, and let us be still and let Him minister to our hearts. Just seeing a cross can be a reminder of the depth of His love that sacrificed all and lets us know how much we are loved.
