Devotions from Judy’s heart

We were smothered with hugs and xxx yesterday as the kids came from school and we were here waiting. After the birthday party at supper time, Paige and Lily prepared a musical program for us, which included dancing, playing of a Recorder etc. We had to buy tickets and conform to all the rules of the theater. It all was going so well, but Grant felt left out so did his own thing on the side. He would jump off a chair and throw his football through a basketball hoop and wait for us to clap for him. He was not going to be outdone by his sisters! I thought of the scripture in Gal. 6:21 where it tells us not to compare ourselves with others. Each of us is so precious to the Lord and He does not show favoritism. Isn’t that wonderful to know that He lavishes His love on each of us the same and delights in us?  I know that we delight in the grandkids, and this is only a small way in which He delights in us. In Zeph 3:17 we are reminded of this. “The Lord your God is with you…. He will take great delight in you. He will quiet you with His love. He will rejoice over you with singing.” Let us go about out day with the realization that He rejoices and sings over us, since we bring delight to Him.
