Wordy Wednesday: Encounter Him

I've been reading The Quiet Place: Daily Devotional Readings by Nancy Leigh DeMoss most days this year.  I was able to put it on my Kindle for free last October.  It has been an encouraging devotional - and one that I've actually stayed with for the year.  (I've missed a few days, I usually read it in the evening, but it's easy to catch up). Good things to think about, she closes with a questions or two at the end of each day toconsider.

A couple of weeks ago, I read this encouraging and convicting statement and wanted to share it.

God, you see, is the ultimate Homemaker. If you are His child, He is right now preparing “a place” for you to live forever with Him (John 14:2). In the meantime, our homes here on earth can provide a foretaste of that heavenly Home. He wants your home and mine to reflect His heart and grace. To be a place where the reality and presence of Christ are felt. A place where His Word is honored. A place where the atmosphere is one of authentic love, kindness, and truth. A place where both those who live there and those who visit encounter Him.

  1. Beautiful. That's the atmosphere I want my home to have: "authentic love, kindness, and truth."

  2. I agree, convicting, but also freeing. Lots of things we can get caught up in at home but only one thing is needful-to know Him.

  3. Wow, you're right, Encouraging and Convicting. Is the rest of the book just as good?
