Devotions from Judy’s heart

The other day Al took me for a boat ride around the Lake. When we got near to our Point the depth finder said it was 6 feet deep. Just a short distance from there it went down to 91 feet. Hard to believe!   It made me think of the deep things of the Lord and how careful we need to be to listen to His word for our lives. Sometimes we are going along in our ordinary life and reading the Word or listening to someone speak when suddenly we know we have just received a deep nugget. It could have come through a new Christian or a seasoned preacher but it doesn’t matter as it hits us deeply in our soul.  We feel we want to hang on to it, to savor it, and to reflect upon what the Lord is saying to us. How we hear and the attention we give is important as the Lord wants to impart His words to our hearts. I read today from Mark 4:24 where He said, “Pay attention to what you hear: with the measure you use, It will be measured to you, and still more will be added.”  If we embrace what we hear, He will add yet more.  Let us not miss the deep things He sends our way but “pay closer attention to what we have heard, lest we drift away from it.”  Heb 2:1
