We are snowed in today which is perfectly fine with me. As much as I don't care for cold, wintry days, there is something I do love about being snowed in. Perhaps it's the fact that I am a homebody at heart, and the weather today has given me the opportunity to be where I love.

This has been a really good week. One that brought unexpected surprises, moments of taking in the gifts He is giving me and heartfelt conversations. I have set my heart on pursuing Jesus and through that, He is impressing on me what true abandonment really is.

"Abandonment is practiced by CONTINUALLY losing your own will in the will of God; by plunging your will into the depths of His will, there to be lost forever!

What is abandonment? It is forgetting your past; it is leaving the future in His hands; it is devoting the present fully and completely to your Lord. Abandonment is being satisfied with the present moment, no matter what that moment contains. You are satisfied because you know that whatever that moment has, it contains- in that instant- God's eternal plan for you." -Jeanne Guyon ("Experiencing the Depths of Jesus Christ")

I love that.

I want to go the depths of Jesus. Seeking to know Him and being utterly abandoned to Him.

  1. amen, What a blessing to be so abandon in Him. I don't hear to many people saying that they want to be lost in Him. And if that is your heart desire I know the Father will grant it, for He tells us to delight yourself in Him and He will give you the desires of your heart

  2. Small gestures of beauty such as this reminds me of just how small the world really is in whole compared to the Lord! Found you on Mom Monday~Shari
