Devotions from Judy’s heart

Hang Loose!! Make room! Give Space! Today I got up early and took out of the freezer ribs, twice baked potatoes and peanut cake etc but a call from my uncle changed everything. He sounded terrible and is sick so was canceling the dinner at our house. There are reminders every day that we need to be flexible as one call can change everything. Instead of a big meal, I got some baking done and took out Al’s winter clothes. And yesterday we had a nice surprise as my sister unexpectedly stopped in, giving some time for us to talk together on the deck.  But what if we are so locked in that we miss what is happening right before us? The Lord wants to call the shots and direct every part of our day. But we need to be listening and open, and have space for the Holy Spirit to move in our lives. If we are open we will hear, as it says in Is. 30:21, “And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, ‘This is the way, walk in it,’ when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left.”  May we let the Holy Spirit be in charge of every detail of our lives and help us stay on the perfect path He has for each of us. Who knows what is in store for us today?!!!
