Devotions from Judy’s heart

One day when I was going to Line Dancing and Bone Builders I went into my closet and put on my black exercise pants that my daughter-in-law gave me. I neglected to put on the closet light and after I got them on they did not fit right. I wondered if I had gained weight but I had already weighed myself and was just the same as usual. I worked around the house and they felt tight and uncomfortable and just before I was to go to class, I realized I had them on backwards. No wonder they didn’t fit right. I wonder if there are things we are doing in our lives that aren’t a good fit for us. Maybe we are told to go into a certain field of work, or maybe we have been influenced by someone we respect.  I remember when Al was confused about his future, a pastor we respect told him to go into selling books for a while. Even though we thought highly of him, Al did not feel that was a fit for him. There are times when something doesn’t feel good and doesn’t seem to fit, we need to wait on the Lord and discover what He has for us. For then it will be a perfect fit.

“Wait for the lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage: wait for the Lord!” Psalm 17:14
