I highlighted and wrote many notes in the book. The following passage, speaks to my heart and will be an encouragement to many mom's I know.
I looked up the he MSG version of this also “It’s who you are and the way you live that count before God. Your worship must engage your spirit in the pursuit of truth. That’s the kind of people the Father is out looking for: those who are simply and honestly themselves before him in their worship. God is sheer being itself—Spirit. Those who worship him must do it out of their very being, their spirits, their true selves, in adoration.” #spirittruth #journeyofFAITH
My take away: Mama's let's see the cleaning, cooking, running errands, raising of children, teaching, the person in line at the store, the clerk, the friend struggling to believe, our jobs, the annoying person....whatever else the Lord places in our path, as ways to see the Lord and give HIM glory. Help me to not grumble, get anxious, worry, lose patience, but instead to worship and serve in love! I am not perfect Lord, but you are, You choose to die for me, but I didn't deserve that. Thank you Jesus for coming to earth to show us true sacrifice and love! Christ alone is our victory!
From Moody the publishers of the book:
Tozer understood prayer as few do: as a way of life. Now readers can share that same grand vision.
Prayer combines the best of Tozer on prayer into one volume. Tozer was captured by the great wonder of God, and he regarded prayer as the primary means of coming into His presence. But if our everyday life is filled with the barrenness of busyness and there is no serious urgency to pray, we forfeit the wonder of being conformed to the image of Christ and knowing our God more intimately—the true Christian life.
Prayer is doable. God is accessible. And Tozer provides the wisdom and encouragement to help us encounter Him daily. With commentary and reflection questions provided by compiler W.L. Seaver, Prayer takes our understanding of prayer to new depths and helps us have a life that prays.
