Dear Ones,
Hope you had a restful weekend. The Vikings had a good win yesterday! This morning I did food prep and have some more baking to get done and soon going to my exercise class. We have errands to do this afternoon before our walk.  
Devotions from Judy’s heart
  God shows His power for the big concerns of our lives but also for the smallest details. It is amazing to me how He works in various and intricate ways to bring about His “miracles” both great and small in our lives. I just read about Moses who was leading over a million Israelites to the Promise land and saw so many big miracles (including the opening of the Red Sea so they could walk on dry land), and yet he had doubts. The people complained about having no meat and he told the Lord about the impossible situation. But the Lord told him in Numbers 11:23, (Amplified), “Has the Lord’s hand (His ability and power) become short (thwarted and inadequate)? You shall see now whether My word shall come to pass for you or not.” God can do anything, anything, and His hand is not shortened or lacks power.
   Sometimes we find it easier to believe for the big things and think that the Lord shouldn’t be bothered by the small details in our lives, but He is concerned for all. Recently I told David who we daily walk together with on the trail, about the big sales at Kohl’s and asked him if he had any needs for Vickie, his wife with Alzheimer’s. Unbeknown to me at the time, David had prayed only a few hours before that the Lord would solve his jean problem for Vickie as he wasn’t sure she had enough jeans. He later said he had been stressed out and confused as how to buy them, plus they can be very expensive. I just happened to ask her size and on Saturday made a trip to Kohl’s. There were many jeans but scores of them were expensive or the kind that had holes in the knees, low rise, or such skinny ones that Vickie would have a hard time putting on. I almost gave up but prayed again that the Lord provide and set to looking on one last rack that was very messy. But there it was… a pair in her exact size, no holes, high rise and guess what? With the sale and my discount and Kohl’s dollars the $44 pr of jeans was $11. I couldn’t wait to give them to Vickie and David yesterday. And as you might guess they fit her perfectly for I believe the Lord handpicked them. David wrote a thankyou and expressed how awesome is our God and as close as our breath!
Challenge for today: Throughout your day give your concerns to the Lord, and then thank Him as you see His hand at work.
Blessings on  your week and prayers and love, Judy
