You can read the devotional online here, at devotional.upperroom.org. I woke up this morning praying that it would encourage others who have lost the closeness of a friend, sibling, parent or someone else and who despair of ever reconnecting with them. The Lord truly does work in mysterious ways, and I believe He’s changing our hearts all the time when we listen to Him and pray. Have patience and courage!
It also happens that today, July 18, is my new mother-in-law’s birthday! Happy Birthday to Mrs. Susan. It feels like this devotional’s publication date, which I had no control over, was meant to be. It shows me that the Lord is opening the way for new friendships for me even as He also restores old ones.
Have a wonderful Friday, everyone!
