• “What is the secret to great living? Entire separation to Christ and devotion to Him. Thus speaks every man and woman whose life has made more than a passing flicker in the spiritual realm. It is the life that has no time for trifling that counts.” – Amy Carmichael

Away from the Distractions by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 06/22/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Do you ever have trouble getting away from all the distractions and spending time alone with God? Here’s what a mom shared with me once:

“I have a sweet memory of our son, John. When he was about 18 months old, he’d get out of his bed each morning and come to find me. The only place in our small house where I could be away from the kids was in our small bathroom.

“I’d go in there every day to have my quiet time with God. John would come up, put his little hand under the door, and hold onto my foot until I finished. Even at that early age, he’d learned that I had to read my Bible every day.”

Nancy: Moms, what kind of pattern are your kids seeing? Starting tomorrow, why don’t you show them that the words of Psalm 5:3 are true in your life? It says: “In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice. In the morning I lay my requests before you.”

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
