Devotions from Judy’s heart

Each of us has a path designed by God, and we are never alone for He walks with us. How comforting that is as we go through hard times of struggles, grief, and challenges. Sometimes we wish we could see way ahead, and at other times we are glad we didn’t know what was coming.  But whatever we go through, it is a time to learn to trust in a deeper way. It is so easy to say we trust the Lord, and yet when we go through difficult times we are so full of “whys”.   I like what Sarah Young says in Jesus Calling,” I have promised to keep you in perfect Peace to the extent that you trust Me…My Peace, however, is such an all-encompassing gift that it is independent of all circumstance. Through you have everything else, if you gain My Peace you are rich indeed.”  Everything we go through is preparatory for what lies ahead.  We have had several friends who have gone home to be with the Lord just this past week, and it is comforting to know they are forever with Him. “And the peace of God which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” Phil 4:7
