Devotions from Judy’s heart

We have been enjoying so much beauty as we have traveled a lot lately, especially last week in the mountains.  I read from Ps. 98: 4 & 8  “Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth, burst into jubilant song with music…let the rivers clap their hands, let the mountains sing together for joy.”  What a picture of His marvelous creation before our eyes! We haven’t wanted to do a lot of traveling before sunrise or after dark, as we were afraid we would miss something. ( Today was an exception) I thought of how important it is to walk in the light or we miss so much in the spiritual sense. It says in I Peter 2:9 that we were ” called out of darkness into His marvelous light.”  When we choose to stay in the dark, we miss the closeness and intimacy of His presence, His guidance in our daily walk, and close fellowship with other Christians. One of my favorite verses that was also my confirmation verse is from I John 1:7, “If we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another. And the blood of Jesus, His son, cleanses us from all sin.”  Let us come out of the dark and walk in the light and enjoy fellowship with Him and with others, rejoicing in all He has made.
