Now ladies, help me out a bit here… I didn’t think I’d have to resort to this, but…. I tag RENA, GINGER & COURTNEY! Y’all let us know what you are reading… Comment below. Inquiring minds (at least mine) want to know.
I found something fun to try, so don’t cheat! Please participate – it’ll be fun!
Here is how it works:
- Grab the book closest to you
- Open to page 123, go down to the fourth sentence
- Post the text of the following three sentences
- Name the author and book title
- Post your results on “comments”
- Post on your blog, and see what happens!
But far too often I find myslef turning my attention to the details and tasks of the day without first taking adequate time to “inquire of the Lord.”
When I do so, what I am really saying (though I’d never actually say it) is that I can handle that day on my own – apart from the presence, wisdom, and grace of God. I am saying I can do my work, keep my home, handle my relationships, and deal with my circumstances without Him.
from Lies Women Believe and the Truth That Sets Them Free by Nancy Leigh DeMoss
This is a great book! I highly recommend it to everyone. This particular excerpt is from the chapter about the lies we have believed about priorities. The particular lie addressed here is “I can make it without consistent time in the Word and prayer.” Big lie!
I can’t wait to read part of your books!
