Dear Ones,
Happy weekend! Our weekend is already a joyous one as we arrived at Mark and Andrea’s in N.C. early yesterday afternoon. So thankful for the safe journey here! It’s great to be together, we played games and lots of laughter, and went to see John Mark’s basketball game last night. Today Al is going out with Mark for father/son time, boys have home schooling, and tonight their pastor’s family is coming over  
Devotions from Judy’s heart
  How big is our God? Do we believe He can do anything? Like the song goes by Pastor James Cleveland, that I learned as a youth: “God can do anything, anything, anything/ God can do anything but fail…He’s the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end/ He’s the fairest of ten thousand to my soul/ God can do anything, anything, anything/ God can do anything but fail…He can save, He can cleanse/ he can keep, and He will/ God can do anything but fail.”
    God can do the impossible but do we believe that? We read of all the great miracles and signs that Jesus did when He walked on earth, like healing the blind, raising the dead; but do we believe that He still does miraculous things today? Absolutely!!
   Rather than wasting the day in worry about things that concern us, we can pray and ask God for His will in everything. As it says in Jer. 33:3 (Amplified), “Call to Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things, fenced in and hidden, which you do not know (do not distinguish and recognize, have knowledge of and understand).”
   Our concern might be like Keneesha who applied for a job she really wanted but that she was not as qualified as others: she prayed before sending in her application, “Not my will but Thine be done!” God surprised her and gave her the job and she didn’t doubt that it was His doing. God can do anything!
   Or we might have concern for a loved one that has been given bad news from the Dr. and a set number of days to live. But then God does a miracle and when returning to the Doctor, no trace of cancer can be found. That happens today and we praise Him for God can do anything!
   What is it today that we need to trust God with? Maybe a child that has gone astray or a lingering illness etc. But whatever it is we can give it to the Lord and in faith, believe that He will answer according to His perfect will. Nothing, absolutely nothing is too hard for Him. 
Challenge for today: Give to the Lord something that weighs on your heart and wait in faith for His answer.
Blessings on your weekend and prayers and love, Judy
