“What if, sometimes, there be mists and fogs so thick that I cannot see the path? It is enough that You hold my hand, and guide me in the darkness; for walking with You in the gloom is far sweeter and safer than walking alone in the sunlight!” -Susannah Spurgeon
Part of fulfilling my job as a nanny includes filling these little hearts and minds with books, songs, stories, and words that drive their thoughts, hearts, and affections to the only righteous One. Here are some of my recommendations for doing so. (Link in bio.)
Lilli was praying while coloring earlier and said, “God, I love You when You’re the same and I still love You when You’re not the same.” • This echoes a lot of conversations we have on a daily basis, conversations of how she is loved regardless of her actions and how we “love you when you listen and we love you don’t.” • “Hey, Lilli, want to hear some amazing news?” • She always does. • “God never changes,” I tell her. “He’s always the same.” • “Wow.” • “How does that make you feel?” • She smiled so big. “It makes me feel really happy.” • “Why would that make you happy?” • “Because I love Him and I want Him to come everywhere with me and if He never changes it means He is always with me.” • She’s three years old. • Solid theology is a comfort for every age. Praise God for His immutability.
“Are you not willing to pass through every ordeal if by any means you may save some?” -Charles Spurgeon

From My Journal: Above the Skies

The following is a journal entry from April 7th/8th while flying from the United States to Europe. May God receive all the glory due His name.

As we flew from Chicago to Washington D.C. today I was made keenly aware of the different perspectives of being in the air versus being on the ground.

When you’re in the air looking down, everything looks so minuscule and not really a big deal. Life looks easy and smooth. The worries looks small.

In the air you can’t see anyone with cancer or anyone fighting temptation. You don’t see anyone pursuing holiness, resisting the flesh or yearning for more of God.

As I thought of those things I thought of how God is so far above us–so transcendent, yet He knows the inner workings of each one of us. 

The God of the universe fashioned and molded all of the people in all of the homes in all of the streets in all of the towns we flew over. He is magnificent and mighty to be so great yet so personal.

What love He has to come down to us. To care about us tiny little specks on a great big spinning ball we call the earth. 

Glory to God.

PSALM 113–

Praise the Lord!
Praise, O servants of the Lord,
praise the name of the Lord!

2 Blessed be the name of the Lord
from this time forth and forevermore!

3 From the rising of the sun to its setting,
the name of the Lord is to be praised!

4 The Lord is high above all nations,
and His glory above the heavens!

5 Who is like the Lord our God,
who is seated on high,

6 who looks far down
on the heavens and the earth?

7 He raises the poor from the dust
and lifts the needy from the ash heap,

8 to make them sit with princes,
with the princes of his people.

9 He gives the barren woman a home,
making her the joyous mother of children.
Praise the Lord!
