• ”As we grow spiritually, God begins to wean us from things that we think we can’t live without: things, comfort, the longing for life to ‘work.’ That’s a childish instinct, to say, ‘Life has to work the way I want it to work, and now’.” – Nancy Leigh DeMoss

Holy Days by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 12/21/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Our word holiday actually comes from two words—holy day.

I’ve tried to set aside time on special days to think about God’s goodness and to ask Him for help in the coming year. Here’s a prayer I wrote in my journal on my 35th birthday:

As I look ahead to another year of life, I am reminded that I may not spend another year here on this earth. You may call me to heaven, or the Lord Jesus may return for His bride.

Teach me to number my days and recognize how few they are; help me to spend them as I should. Oh God, I seek Your blessing and Your favor, for having them, I lack nothing. I would seek to please You rather than men.

As you observe days that are meaningful to you, why not take some time to write down what God is doing in your life? It might make just another holiday into a holy day.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “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
