• “Let us ask that the Lord Jesus would so perfectly tune our spirits to the keynote of His exceeding great love, that all our unconscious influence may breathe only of that love, and help all with whom we come in contact to obey the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.” – Frances Ridley Havergal

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.
