Devotions from Judy’s heart

Today I read from Ps. 107: “Oh give thanks to the Lord for He is good…He satisfies the longing soul, and the hungry soul, He fills with good things,”  Do we believe He is good and gifts us with good things, even when we go through a loss?  

When I was getting ready for company, I put on my favorite earrings that match a couple necklaces. I couldn’t find those little white beadlike backs and didn’t think it mattered since I was only going to be in the house. But later I discovered I had only one earring, and we looked around the house and it was no where to be found. Why didn’t I take time to put on the  backs to secure it?  While in the mountains at Breckenridge  I looked for the same kind of earrings to replace them. I went into a jewelry shop that was overflowing with every kind of earring, except what I wanted. I asked the clerk and he said the only place he may have this kind was in the $1.99 box at the front of the store, which I had overlooked. And what to my surprise, I found the exact earrings that go with my necklaces, and also two other sets for the same price. I came out of the store smiling and so thankful. It was my fault for not securing my earrings, and we can get disappointed and down when we lose something that we love.  But hold on….. God may have something even better for us ahead. I’m so glad He doesn’t give us what we deserve but is so merciful and good!
