Dear Ones,
Hope you are having a wonderful holiday time and keeping cool. Al and I went to the lake yesterday afternoon and joined over 2 dozen of the relatives for a picnic, swim, games etc. Loved seeing everyone and was a fun time. I just finished making Al’s cookies and soon going to Aldi’s and my exercise class. 
Devotions from Judy’s heart 
  Sometimes people seem like angels in disguise. They are right there when we need them and make a difference in the outcome. God often uses others to meet a particular need we may have, and in our eyes, they seem to shine forth like angels. Such was the case for me recently. I was having a problem on my new computer, and it seemed like it should be so simple to solve and I tried but wasn’t able to do so. We called in for tech support and we got first tech who couldn’t solve it and then he gave our case to another tech who was more advanced, and he couldn’t solve the problem either. We were told to call Yahoo as it must be a result from their upgrade. So, we prayed, and Al felt like we should just go over to Best Buy and see if the Geek on hand for the weekend could solve it. We told him the same thing we told the other two techs, but he said, “I think I can solve it!” That was music to our ears, and he didn’t work long at all and he had my computer running the way it should. He also added some other things on my computer that will make life easier for me. We thanked him profusely and told him he was an angel. Al said a prayer of blessing for him, and it may be that it was the first time such a response was given the geek by a customer. I went home smiling and happy and thankful, and the Geek must have felt good that he brought so much happiness!

  There are times we have no idea what some action we may do for someone else may just be an answer to their prayers. God wants our ear tuned to hear Him so if he gives us a directive, we obey and do it in His timing. Paul said in Eph. 2:10(God’s Word), “God has made us what we are. He has created us in Christ Jesus to live lives filled with good works that He has prepared for us to do.” When we know the Lord, He gives us joy in doing good works that will bless others. We have received so much from Him, and it is natural that we want to reach out and touch others with His love and deeds of kindness. The Lord prepares us to do whatever it is that He has planned, and let us respond!

Challenge for today: When feeling prompted by the Holy Spirit, follow His leading in obedience.
Blessings on your week and prayers and love, Judy
