Devotions from Judy’s heart

On our trip here,when I was swimming in the hotel pool, there was no one else there so I just prayed as I swam and enjoyed the freedom. I thought I was alone but I looked up and there was a security camera. I thought of the verse from Luke 8, “For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open.”  Little did I know that someone was indeed watching me.  I thought of times when we feel like we are going through things alone and wonder where God is in all of it. The words of a song came to mind …” Why should I be discouraged, why should the shadows fall, why should my heart be lonely and long for heaven and home. Since Jesus is my portion, my constant friend is He. His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches me!

He has promised to always be with us, for “The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and His ears are attentive to their prayer.” ( I Peter 3:12)
