• “I henceforth take Jesus Christ to be mine. I promise to receive Him as a husband to me. And I give myself to Him, unworthy though I am, to be His spouse. I ask of Him, in this marriage of spirit with spirit, that I may be of the same mind with Him — meek, pure, nothing in myself, and united in God’s will. And, pledged as I am to be His, I accept as part of my marriage portion, the temptations and sorrows, the crosses and the contempt which fell to Him. — Jeanne M.B. de la Mothe Guyon, Sealed with her ring.”

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.
