Devotions from Judy’s heart

Some time ago Ann gave me a lovely ¾ sleeved jacket that I picked out when we shopped together. But when I got it home, I was disappointed for it didn’t match the intended outfit.  I kept the jacket in the back of my closet and when I shopped last Saturday, I bought a lovely fall skirt with Birthday money. And this time when I got home, it matched the jacket perfectly. I thought of how sometimes we receive teaching that is good but doesn’t quite fit in to where we are at presently. So we put it “on the back burner” so to speak. It is good but we are not able to apply it yet. Then in the future, all of a sudden it makes perfect sense to us and fits right where we are at.  It may be a  scripture that comes alive, a teaching that seems  to reinforce what He has been telling us along etc  We are glad we didn’t throw it out and may even wonder why we didn’t “get it” sooner. But the Lord has His timing and brings us to those “Aha moments” and we know He has spoken to our hearts..Let us be like the little boy Samuel who said to the Lord, “Speak Lord, for your servant hears.” ( I Sam 3:10)
