The Wisdom of Madame G

November 11, 2008

…”I need to share with you the greatest difficulty you will have in waiting upon the Lord. It has to do with your mind. The mind has a very strong tendency to stray away from the Lord. Therefore, as you come before the Lord to sit in his presence, beholding him, make use of the scripture to quiet your mind.”

-Madame Guyon

My mind this morning: “Getup. Wheresthecoffee? Hurryhurryhurry. Creamerhalfandhalf. Gogogo. LUCY, GETBACKINBEDIAMGOINGTOPRAY. Whyistheresomuchcathaironmyprayerchair? Whereismyipod?
