Devotions from Judy’s heart

Yesterday  when I was at the garden I went down the 2 rows of beans and thought I had picked most all of them. But as I went back the opposite way down the row, there were so many beans I missed. They were seen better from the other direction and I would have missed them. Sometimes we see things only from our point of view and don’t want to turn and look at things through another person’s eyes. When we do this and hang on only to our way of seeing, we may miss many valuable things the Lord has for us. Our way is not the only way!  We need to be open and seeking and searching so that we glean what He has for us. It may mean lifting the leaves and looking way down under, it may mean pushing aside what we have always known. And when we do, we may be surprised at what the Lord has for us. As it says in Prov. 15:14, “The heart of him who has understanding seeks knowledge.”
