Dear Ones,
Hope you are having a good day. We just got home and left 11 hours ago to head to the cities to see my special aunt who is now in Hospice and staying with her daughter.What a blessed time together as we talked about heaven. We spent the rest of the day shopping at St John’s and many bookstores and out to eat. My book loving hubby is purring tonight!  
Devotions from Judy’s heart
I woke up today with the words going through my mind, “God sees”. He knows and sees everything that is going on in our lives and all around us and doesn’t miss a thing. It’s likely we all had experiences when we were young, of times we got blamed for something we didn’t do and wished our parents had been there to see what was really going on. But God is El Roi, our God who sees and knows everything and nothing is hid from Him. We can remember Hagar, an Egyptian slave, who was mistreated by Sarah, and ran away. Being pregnant and alone she despaired of life but an angel appeared and gave her a message. She responded and it says in Gen. 16:13 (The Message), “She answered God by name, praying to the God who spoke to her, ‘You’re the God who sees me!’ “ Yes! He saw me; and then I saw Him!” She went back to her mistress and was encouraged by the message given her.  Isn’t it comforting to us to be assured that God sees all and knows every need we have? He isn’t asleep, He is always aware of our circumstances and knows our needs better than we do. Maybe others have failed us in our lives, or maybe we are sick or in a difficult situation. He knows! He is on the lookout and it says in II Chron. 16:9 that he his eyes range throughout the earth to help those whose hearts are fully committed to Him. That doesn’t mean that bad things don’t ever happen to us but that He takes us through them and gives us the help we need. None of us know what is ahead of us and what tomorrow may bring, but if we know the One who holds our future, we can rest and be at peace. God sees us so let us pray that our spiritual eyes be opened more and more to see Him who is our God of miracles!
Challenge for today: Sit quietly before the Lord and picture His eyes of love on you.
Blessings on your evening and prayers and love, Judy
