Hope you are having a good day. The weather is cooler and seems like Fall is here and summer is over. This morning I made blueberry/cinnamon bread which we are anxious to try. I also went shopping with a friend from church to decide on decorations for an upcoming women’s event. But then we topped it off at the Mall and hit super sales! On the way home we saw a man collapse near his car and went over to help him and 911 was called. Like my devotional today, we never know what may happen in a day.
Devotions from Judy’s heart
We don’t know the future or even what is ahead of us today but it is comforting to know that God does. He is aware of everything that will touch our lives and is our solid rock.
I just read today on Facebook about my cousin’s granddaughter, Maci, who is overseas with YWAM. She called home and shared with her folks how she lost everything except what she was wearing and a few items in her backpack. She told how they had a dryer hooked up by a technician and everything looked properly done. However, there was a leak in the pipe somewhere, and when one of her roommates went to take a shower the spark from the water heater caused an explosion. One of Maci’s friends was napping at the time in Maci’s room, and it was that room that took the brunt of the explosion. Maci had to pry the door open to get her friend out and quickly carried her out to the street where they loaded her in a car and took her to the hospital. She is undergoing skin grafts for 2nd and 3rd degree burns from head to toe. Maci told her folks that she felt God had been asking her for the past few months if He is enough. Through all this she responded that “Yes, He is.” If you are prompted, pray for her as she will be going to a different YWAM base in two weeks and needs to replace her passport, glasses, guitar and many things. When Maci woke up that morning, she had no idea what was ahead of her but the Lord strengthened her, as He promises.
We can also think of the Apostle Paul who endured so many hardships, beatings, ship wrecks etc. And he said in Phil 4:11b-13 (The Message), “I’ve found the recipe for being happy whether full or hungry, hands full or hands empty. Whatever I have, wherever I am, I can make it through anything in the One who makes me who I am.” He goes on to say that God will take care of everything we need according to His riches. Let us face each day with confident trust that He is with us and will take care of all of our needs, no matter what the day holds.
Challenge for today: Thank the Lord that He is faithful and entrust this day and your whole future into His hands.
Blessings on your day and prayers and love, Judy
