Devotions from Judy’s heart

One day I was at a meeting and it was so cold in the place. After about 2 hours, I couldn’t wait to leave the 4 walls and get to my car that had been sitting in the sun. The hot car felt wonderful and when I got home I wrapped myself in a blanket to get warmed up totally. In the afternoon I took a walk in the sun and let the warmth soak down to my bones. In our own lives, why do we want to sit within our 4 walls where it is cold and dark and we can’t feel the warmth of His love? In I Peter 2:9 it says that we were called out of darkness into His marvelous light. So why stick to the familiar rather than venturing out into the warmth of the new? Years ago there was a gal in Ladies’ class who felt she was stuck in a deep hole. I offered to help her to come out of it but she said she didn’t want to because it was familiar. So sad!   We have the promise in Lam. 3:22 that “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases.”  IT is always there for us so why don’t we expose ourselves to the warmth of that love more and more?  Come let us walk in the light of the Lord!  (Isaiah 2:5)
