• “My soul was filled and overwhelmed with light, and love, and joy in the Holy Ghost, and seemed just ready to go away from the body. I could scarcely refrain from expressing my joy aloud, in the midst of the service. I had in the mean time, an overwhelming sense of the glory of God, as the Great Eternal All, and of the happiness of having my own will entirely subdued to his will. I knew that the foretaste of glory, which I then had in my soul, came from him, that I certainly should go to him, and should, as it were, drop into the Divine Being, and be swallowed up in God.” – Sarah Edwards, wife of Jonathan Edwards

Determined and Creative by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 02/29/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: A mom’s work is never done. With middle-of-the-night feedings, endless laundry, and various sicknesses, how can a mom with little children spend time in prayer and the Word of God? I asked some older moms how they did it when their children were little.

“You have to be determined and creative.”

“I would ask God to protect those times. Children really need to know that it is a priority for you.”

“I remember a lot of times during those years rocking a sick child in my arms and bouncing another on my feet and turning on the Bible on cassette.”

“It may not be easy; but if you really, really want to meet with God, you will find a way to do it.”

Nancy: No matter how busy you are today, it’s crucial that you find time to meditate on God’s Word. That’s your lifeline! Pray with the psalmist who said, “I meditate on your precepts and consider your ways.”

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

Verse of the Day

Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. — Matthew 5:11-12 (NKJV)
