Devotions from Judy’s  heart
It says in Ecc. 4 that two  are better than one for “If one falls down, his friend can help him up.”  When I got my new Windows 8 computer it was very different from my old one and Al came to my rescue several times when I got stuck.  Now he purchased his new computer and he is in need of help. Isn’t that the way of life, we help others but they in turn help us in other areas? Right now we are encouraging one another to persist as we’d love to go back to our old computers since we were so comfortable with them.  My computer crashed and I can’t go back to my old one, but it is tempting to use Al’s old one as it is familiar, the same as my old one. But we need to forge ahead and enter into the new.  Have you noticed how we can go along quite comfortably and then the Lord has us take a big turn and we have to hang on and trust?  But we have comforting words in  Jer. 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and hope.”  Let us lean into the Lord, especially when we can’t see where He is taking us.
