Devotions from Judy’s heart

On Al’s way to church for the Men’s group a couple days ago, two deer were ahead of him in the middle of our gravel road. He honked at them, but they just kept running in front of the car for about 200 yards, until they finally went into the woods. They were in danger and were warned by the horn, but didn’t take heed. I thought of how we may be doing things that we have been warned against and yet we can persist. As we think back over our lives, we may all have had times that we were given a warning signal but just kept on in our own way, only to suffer the consequences. Why didn’t we pay attention right away? It would have saved us a lot of grief. But hopefully we learn, and when those “warnings” and promptings of the Spirit come, that we pay attention to go His way. As the familiar song goes, “Have Thine own way, Lord! Have Thine own way! Hold o’er my being absolute sway! Fill with thy Spirit,” ‘Til all shall see Christ only, always, living in me!”
