• “I think of the love of God as a great river, pouring through us even as the waters pour through our ravine at floodtime. Nothing can keep this love from pouring through us, except of course our own blocking of the river. Do you sometimes feel that you have got to the end of your love for someone who refuses and repulses you? Such a thought is folly, for one cannot come to the end of what one has not got. We have no store of love at all. We are not jugs, we are riverbeds.” – Amy Carmichael

A Grain of Wheat by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 12/13/11

“I felt like giving everything to God would mean I couldn’t enjoy anything again.”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: When we choose the pathway of surrender, we may think it will be the end.

“Finally, things got so bad that I had to surrender everything to God.”

Nancy: It is the end for our pride and the rule of our flesh, but it’s just the beginning of life in the Spirit.

When Jesus predicted His death, He said, “The hour has come that the Son of Man should be glorified.”

He explained what He meant in John 12: “Unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain.”

Jesus calls us to die so He can produce His life in and through us. Have you done that? As one friend said to me:

“It’s like going from black and white to full color.”

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
