Devotions from Judy’s heart

Are our blinds pulled? Do we miss the beauty of the Lord because we are closed down? While at the monastery we stayed in the room reserved for priests and pulled the blinds closed at night. But if we never opened them we would miss what God has. We don’t need to let the whole world see us, as we need protection for our vulnerabilities. But God gives us safe places to open up. At daybreak we opened the tall blinds and wow! We saw the sunrise over Lake Superior. It was awesome!  The sun was like a flame red ball on the horizon. Perhaps after dark times in our lives, we appreciate the “daybreaks” even more. Let us not stay locked up behind closed blinds. “He comes in golden splendor, God comes in awesome majesty.”  Job 37:22
