• “In case any are puzzled by the different translations from which I draw strength and help and delight, it is like this: In studying any object with the microscope we use different lenses and turn the mirror in various ways; each change brings out some new wonder and beauty. So it is for those who are not Greek or Hebrew scholars, and who use the work of scholars to open the meaning of the exhaustible Word–the Bible is richer than any single version can fully show.” – Amy Carmichael

Our Top Priority by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 03/07/12

“I used to spend almost an hour a day praying and reading the Bible. But since having kids, I really don’t have enough time, so it just makes me want to give up!”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: I think every mom faces this challenge. I once asked an older woman what she learned in this area. She said:

“This season of life does not always lend itself to longer, in-depth study of the Word, but even a few verses and a short prayer and worship time have helped me through many days. We can’t put ourselves on a guilt trip at this stage of life when we can’t spend as much time as we’d like in the Word. But it must still be our top priority, however brief it may be.”

Nancy: If you can’t spend hours and hours, what time can you carve out? God knows your heart. I believe if you will make it a priority to spend what moments you can with Him, He will bless and multiply that time.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “I entreat you, give no place to despondency. This is a dangerous temptation–a refined, not a gross temptation of the adversary. Melancholy contracts and withers the heart, and renders it unfit to receive the impressions of grace. It magnifies and gives a false colouring to objects, and thus renders your burdens too heavy to bear. God’s designs regarding you, and His methods of bringing about these designs, are infinitely wise.” – Madame Guyon
