Overview

The first publication of Meditation Moments in 1967 marked a bittersweet climax of accomplishment and loss for its author, Millie Stamm. Twelve years of prayerful, written reflections had culminated in a book destined to be treasured by countless women across the world. Now, however, the death of her beloved husband, Clarke, infused Mrs. Stamm's achievement with particular poignancy. In her personal valley of grief, the convictions she had expressed with eloquent simplicity in Meditation Moments proved themselves anew. Meditation Moments is about life --- passionate, prayerful, Spirit-filled life, lived in companionship with the Lord. With plain words and vigorous images, Millie Stamm shares her insights into the Scriptures. Here, from a woman of prayer, are a year's worth of daily reflections on the Word of God --- devotions not only to be inspired by, but to live by, fulfilling your walk as a child of God each day in ordinary and extraordinary ways.

Chapter One

January We see Jesus. Hebrews 2:9 1

Today a new year has been placed in our hands. It is like a book whose pages are fresh and unspotted. Nothing is recorded in it. Yet as soon as we receive it, the clock begins to tick off its minutes and the recording of a new year has begun.

Success may come this year. The deepest desires of our hearts may be realized. Heartaches and problems may fill some of the pages. This can be a year of defeat or a year of triumph, depending on the focus of our eyes. We can either look at the circumstances surrounding us or we can see Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.

Some years ago I was staying at the Hotel Statler in Washington, D. C. One morning a great crowd was gathered about the entrance because President Eisenhower was coming to the hotel for breakfast. Although I had seen him before, I joined the crowd eagerly awaiting a glimpse of the famous statesman. At last the word spread, "He's coming! He's coming!" We stood on tiptoe, stretching as tall as possible to see him.

As I turned away, God reminded me that one day I will have the joy of seeing the Lord of lords and King of kings, Jesus Christ. "Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty" (Isaiah 33:17). What a day it will be when we see Him face to face, the One who loved us and gave Himself for us!

Until then may we see Him with eyes of faith. May we search each page of God's Word for a fresh revelation of Himself. May we see Him in prayer. May we see Him in our circumstances. Then others will see Him in our lives.

Let our motto this year be: "We see Jesus."

2 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. Matthew 6:6

When a native in Uganda accepted Christ, he was told to select a quiet spot in the bush for his daily devotions. As he went there daily, a path was worn in the grass. But the grass grew rapidly. If he missed a day, the grass grew a little, making the path less distinct. If he missed a second day, the grass grew higher. If he continued to miss his quiet time, the path completely disappeared. The spiritual condition of the natives was gauged by their prayer paths. Do we have distinct prayer paths into God's presence, or has the grass grown over them because we have neglected our quiet times?

It has been said of prayer, "The equipment for the inner life of prayer is simple. It consists of a quiet place, a quiet time and a quiet heart." These are not easily achieved. Perhaps it is difficult to find a place where we can have solitude and quiet. It may be that our schedules are so full that we have difficulty finding a time to be quiet. There may be so much tension, confusion and turmoil in our lives that it seems impossible to quiet our hearts in His presence.

Our quiet time with God is important. A dear Christian mother was left to rear a family of little ones. She knew she couldn't do this without God's help, so each day she went into her bedroom, her "quiet place," for a time of prayer. Her children were very small and she was afraid to leave them alone so she gave them toys with which to play while she prayed. Then she would say, "You must be quiet for awhile - Mommie is going to talk with Jesus." At first she left them alone for only a very few minutes. As they grew older, however, she lengthened her quiet time. What a rich heritage those children enjoyed as they grew up with the precious assurance that "Mommie talked with Jesus"!

For the Lord knoweth the way of righteousness. 3 Psalm 1:6

How often we have heard this: "I do not know what tomorrow holds but I know who holds tomorrow." He knows our way through this day, this month, this year. The word "way" in this verse means "trodden path." But Joshua 3:4 reads, "For ye have not passed this way heretofore." If we have not taken this way before, how can it be a trodden path for us?

One night we had a snowstorm. The next morning I watched our neighbor with her two small girls and two neighbor boys playing "Follow the Leader" in the snow. She went ahead of them as their leader, making a trodden path in the snow. As long as they followed in her path they had no trouble. But when they left the path, they stumbled and fell.

In our Christian lives we can follow our Leader, who is the Lord, "simply fixing our gaze upon Jesus, our Prince Leader in the faith" (Weymouth). The way ahead is unknown to us, for we have not taken it before. But as we follow our Leader who goes before us, it becomes a trodden path for us.

Today does your way ahead look dark? Are the clouds hanging low? Are there shadows surrounding you? Your Leader, Jesus Christ, knows your way ahead. Keep your eyes on Him and your unknown way will become a trodden path as you follow Him.

4 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. James 4:8a

Once we had an out-of-town guest to whom we showed points of interest in our city. Knowing of her interest in nursing, we took her past some of our fine hospitals. I noted that usually there was a sign which said "Hospital Zone" or "Quiet Zone," indicating that we should decrease our speed and proceed quietly in the vicinity of the hospital.

These signs reminded me that life, too, should have quiet zones. Our schedules become so full that we find ourselves rushing with the heavy traffic of the avenues and boulevards of daily living. It is important that we have a time of communion and fellowship with God. We need a quiet place where we can hear Him speak to us.

During the day the great clock bell of St. Paul's Cathedral cannot be heard even a few blocks away because of heavy traffic noise. But as the noise of the city subsides at night it can be heard throughout half of the metropolis. So in our lives. In the hustle and bustle of living it is difficult to hear God speaking to us. We need daily quiet times when we listen to Him and let Him speak to us.

One day a friend told of a little neighbor boy who was at their home when they were having daily devotions. Later the lad said to his mother, "They had their commotions." Sometimes our devotional times do indeed seem filled with commotion and it is difficult to hear God speak. We need to draw apart from the stress and strain of life to hear all He wants to share with us. "God speaks loud enough for the willing soul to hear."
