Devotions from Judy’s heart

Today we were in the Blue Ridge at sunrise and there was a mist covering the mountains.  It was hard to know where the mountains ended and where the heavens began. We were literally in the clouds. I felt like shouting,  “Be exalted O God, above the heavens, let your glory be over all the earth.” (Ps. 57:10-11. ) I thought of how we must be ready for the unexpected as the temperatures went from 70 degrees when we left Charleston this morning to  25 degrees and snow in the mountains.  How  important it is  that we are ready for the unexpected. It says in Luke 21:36, “ Always be on the watch and pray.” We had to dress differently today than yesterday and had to drive slowly in the snow. But what if we had insisted on wearing our short sleeved shirts like we did yesterday when it was then in the 80’s?  We would have been freezing today!  As it says in II Tim. 4:2, “Be prepared in season and out of season.”  We had heard the forecast and were prepared today for this new season and so thankful in our winter coats. May we be prepared in the spiritual sense too and be watchful and prayerful.
