Devotions from Judy’s heart,

It is surprising how our circumstances can quickly change our outlook on things. Last week at this time, I was in the hospital with no energy.  Today I am so excited that I can scrub the floors, bake and get ready for a Pastor coming. Before, this would have just been routine, but today I am grateful that I CAN do these things rather than having someone wait on me. Our outlook need not be dependent on our present circumstances though, but rather where our focus is. If it is on the Lord, then everything we do will flow out of love and gratitude to Him. When our eyes are on Him, we can live above our circumstances and rest in His Presence, no matter what is happening in our lives. “And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus.” Eph 2:6   Let us rest with Him in the Heavenly realm, even as we go about our work here below!
