Seeking Him Podcast

Jennie's Words

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: Sometimes I’m tempted to blow my problems out of proportion. You probably do the same thing. Maybe the words of Jennie Thompson can help us.

“God is not in the business of making us ‘happy.’ His business is to receive the glory that is due Him as our Creator and almighty God.”

Nancy: Jennie wrote these words three months after her husband died of leukemia. This widow with three boys expressed an amazing perspective on the purposes of God.

“God has been honored and glorified in a way that never could have happened without difficult circumstances. So I must praise Him for those circumstances.”

Nancy: Jennie’s words remind us that, ultimately, our lives are not all about us. They’re about God’s glory.

“Our happiness is the by-product of being in and doing His will. That’s why I can weep at the graveside of my best friend, my husband, and still be happy.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
