• “Do not lose yourself in your everyday work and activities. Rather, lose yourself in God. When you are doing work, let your innermost heart be centered on Him. Live in His presence and abide in Him. Then your work will follow you into eternity, and you will reap a rich harvest.” – Basilea Schlink

A Devotional Rut by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 10/26/11

“Every day I get up at dawn, get my tea, and read the Bible on the back porch. I’ve been doing it that way for years! But lately, I’m doing all the same things, but the joy just isn’t there. I’m not really connecting with God.”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Sometimes we can get in a devotional rut. We get so focused on the mechanics of what we’re doing that we lose the meaning behind it.

I do recommend using a regular Bible reading plan. But occasionally, when I need some freshness in my devotional life, I may take a few days out from my normal Bible reading schedule to focus on and meditate on just a few verses.

Psalm 77:12: “I will meditate on all your works and consider all your mighty deeds.” The last couple of days I’ve stayed on that verse and spent a long time thinking about all of the amazing things God’s done. It’s been great!

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
