“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

Monday Morning Munch No. 162 – 7 Quotes on Prayer by Charles Spurgeon

7 spurgeon quotes on prayer.jpg

The following quotes are from Spurgeon on Prayer, a compilation of culled gems from Charles Spurgeon, which I highly recommend it to anyone. 

You must expect to feel weakest when you are enjoying your greatest triumph.

If [God] has said much about prayer, it is because He knows we have much need of it.

A prayerless soul is a Christless soul.

When God seems to close His ear, we must not therefore close our mouths, but rather cry with more earnestness.

If you would reach to something higher than ordinary groveling experience, look to the rock that is higher than you (Ps. 62), and gaze with the eye of faith through the window of importunate prayer. When you open the window on your side, it will not be bolted on the other.

If ever one of woman born might have lived without prayer, it was our spotless, perfect Lord, and yet none was ever so much in supplication as He!

God loves to see the hearts of His people glowing towards Himself. Let us give to God our hearts, all blazing with love, and seek His grace, that the fire may never be quenched, for it will not burn if the Lord does not keep it burning.
