Daily Devotional for July 13, 2022

This past week, Carl gave me a book he really wants me to read.  On the cover it says, “Large Print Edition.”
I wonder what he was trying to tell me.
Sunday, we moved the worship services to Grobowsky Hall.  After the worship service, Ted walked up and said, “The chairs are too uncomfortable for me to fall asleep.”
I wonder what he was trying to tell me.
Yesterday, as I ate lunch in the breakroom, Pastor Kit looked at the lunchbox Shannon had packed for me.  It was light blue with pretty flowers on it.  He said, “Pastor, that lunch box is very cute.  Next time, let me help you pick one out.”
I wonder what he was trying to tell me.
This morning I woke up, Shannon iss sleeping peacefully, my children and grandchildren are safe and sound, I am in good health, I have a job I love dearly, and am blessed in more ways than I can count.
I wonder what God is trying to tell me.
If you ever wonder what God is trying to tell you, it’s simple.
You are loved by the One who created the infinite galaxies of the universe, the One who spoke to Moses on the side of a mountain, the One who became one of us, and the One who died so that you can go to heaven.  
There is nothing the One hasn’t done because of his infinite love and compassion for you.
Today, as you read this devotional, know God is trying to communicate his love to you.  There’s no need to wonder or worry.  You are loved.
King David had done great things serving God.  He had also made huge mistakes and caused tremendous harm.  But in the good and bad times of his life, he knew God loved him.  He said, “How precious is your steadfast love, O God!  All people may take refuge in the shadow of your wings.”  (Psalm 36:7)
I don’t know much but I know that God loves you.  That’s all that really matters.
Prayer:  Dear Gracious Heavenly God, thank you for loving me.  Help me shine your light into the lives of others.  In Jesus’ name I pray.  Amen.

Through both the good and bad of life, God is trying to tell you he loves you.  I hope you hear.
I pray your day is filled with joy and laughter.
