Devotions from Judy’s heart for 10-30

In Jer. 29:11 it says, “I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Yesterday I was together with friends from my grade school days as we have remained friends all these years. We were in youth group together, went to Bible camp together, had slumber parties etc.  We all know the Lord but we did not know back then, what plans the Lord had for each of us. It was so neat to spend almost 7 hours catching up and seeing how God has directed each of our journeys.  This morning I read a prayer from a devotional book from Mt. Carmel ministries and it is my prayer also.  “Lord God, my spirit rejoices that my path and journey are already known by you. Help me to recognize and understand your messages for me so that I can cooperate with your Spirit to fulfill your purposes for my life. Today, help me to “see” where and how your kingdom expands my life within the lives of others. Amen.

Friendships in the Lord are truly a gift from above and has enriched and expanded my life.
