    Elisabeth Elliot

    Elisabeth Elliot

    Elisabeth Elliot
    “If my life is surrendered to God, all is well. Let me not grab it back, as though it were in peril in His hand but would be safer in mine!”
    Elisabeth Elliot

  • #3
    Elisabeth Elliot
    “The question is simply,'Who is your master?'Once that's settled, you ask whether any word have been spoken. If it has, you have your orders.”

    “Jesus never pussyfooted”
    Elisabeth Elliot, The Mark of a Man

  • #6
    Elisabeth Elliot
    “A man must at times be hard as nails: willing to face up to the truth about himself, and about the woman he loves, refusing compromise when compromise is wrong. But he must also be tender. No weapon will breach the armor of a woman's resentment like tenderness.”
    Elisabeth Elliot, The Mark of a Man

  • #7
    Elisabeth Elliot
    “He is always doing something--the very best thing, the thing we ourselves would certainly choose if we knew the end from the beginning. He is at work to bring us to our full glory.”
    Elisabeth Elliot

  • #8
    Elisabeth Elliot
    “The fact that I am a woman does not make me a different kind of Christian, but the fact that I am a Christian makes me a different kind of woman.”
    Elisabeth Elliot

  • #9
    Elisabeth Elliot
    “I have one desire now - to live a life of reckless abandon for the Lord, putting all my energy and strength into it.”
    Elisabeth Elliot, Through Gates of Splendor

  • #10
    Elisabeth Elliot
    “This love of which I speak is slow to lose patience - it looks for a way of being constructive.
    Love is not possessive.
    Love is not anxious to impress nor does it cherish inflated ideas of its own ideas.
    Love has good manners and does not pursue selfish advantage.
    Love is not touchy.
    Love does not keep account of evil or gloat over the wickedness of other people. On the contrary, it is glad with all good men when truth prevails.
    Love knows no limits to its endurance, no end to its trust, no fading of its hope; it can outlast anything. It is, in fact, the one thing that stands when all else has fallen.”
    Elisabeth Elliot, Let Me Be a Woman

  • #11
    Elisabeth Elliot
    “God never witholds from His child that which His love and wisdom call good. God's refusals are always merciful -- "severe mercies" at times but mercies all the same. God never denies us our hearts desire except to give us something better.”
    Elisabeth Elliot

  • #12
    Elisabeth Elliot
    “We are women, and my plea is Let me be a woman, holy through and through, asking for nothing but what God wants to give me, receiving with both hands and with all my heart whatever that is.”
    Elisabeth Elliot

  • #13
    Elisabeth Elliot
    “This job has been given to me to do. Therefore, it is a gift. Therefore, it is a privilege. Therefore, it is an offering I may make to God. Therefore, it is to be done gladly, if it is done for Him. Here, not somewhere else, I may learn God’s way. In this job, not in some other, God looks for faithfulness.”
    Elisabeth Elliot

  • #14
    Elisabeth Elliot
    “God is God. Because he is God, He is worthy of my trust and obedience. I will find rest nowhere but in His holy will that is unspeakably beyond my largest notions of what he is up to.”
    Elisabeth Elliot

  • #15
    Elisabeth Elliot
    “One reason we are so harried and hurried is that we make yesterday and tomorrow our business, when all that legitimately concerns us is today. If we really have too much to do, there are some items on the agenda which God did not put there. Let us submit the list to Him and ask Him to indicate which items we must delete. There is always time to do the will of God. If we are too busy to do that, we are too busy.”
    Elisabeth Elliot, Secure in the Everlasting Arms

  • #16
    Elisabeth Elliot
    “Faith's most severe tests come not when we see nothing, but when we see a stunning array of evidence that seems to prove our faith vain.”
    Elisabeth Elliot, These Strange Ashes

  • #17
    Elisabeth Elliot
    “To be a follower of the Crucified means, sooner or later, a personal encounter with the cross. And the cross always entails loss. The great symbol of Christianity means sacrifice and no one who calls himself a Christian can evade this stark fact.”
    Elisabeth Elliot, These Strange Ashes

  • #18
    Elisabeth Elliot
    “God is God. I dethrone Him in my heart if I demand that He act in ways that satisfy my idea of justice. It is the same spirit that taunted, "If Thou be the Son of God, come down from the Cross." There is unbelief, there is even rebellion, in the attitude that says, "God has no right to do this to five men unless...”
    Elisabeth Elliot, Through Gates of Splendor

    Elisabeth Elliot
    “Where does your security lie? Is God your refuge, your hiding place, your stronghold, your shepherd, your counselor, your friend, your redeemer, your saviour, your guide? If He is, you don't need to search any further for security.”
    Elisabeth Elliot

  • #20
    Elisabeth Elliot
    “There is no ongoing spiritual life without this process of letting go. At the precise point where we refuse, growth stops. If we hold tightly to anything given to us, unwilling to let it go when the time comes to let it go or unwilling to allow it to be used as the Giver means it to be used, we stunt the growth of the soul. It is easy to make a mistake here, “If God gave it to me,” we say, “its mine. I can do what I want with it.” No. The truth is that it is ours to thank Him for and ours to offer back to Him, ours to relinquish, ours to lose, ours to let go of – if we want to find our true selves, if we want real life, if our hearts are set on glory.”
    Elisabeth Elliot

  • #21
    Elisabeth Elliot
    “The will of God is not something you add to your life. It’s a course you choose. You either line yourself up with the Son of God…or you capitulate to the principle which governs the rest of the world.”
    Elisabeth Elliot

  • #22
    Elisabeth Elliot
    “It is God to whom and with whom we travel, and while He is the end of our journey, He is also at every stopping place.”
    Elisabeth Elliot

  • #23
    Elisabeth Elliot
    “We never know what God has up His sleeve. You never know what might happen; you only know what you have to do now.”
    Elisabeth Elliot

  • #24
    Elisabeth Elliot
    “The will of God is never exactly what you expect it to be. It may seem to be much worse, but in the end it's going to be a lot better and a lot bigger.”
    Elisabeth Elliot

  • #25
    Elisabeth Elliot
    “To love God is to love His will. It is to wait quietly for life to be measured by One who knows us through and through. It is to be content with His timing and His wise appointment.”
    Elisabeth Elliot

  • #26
    Elisabeth Elliot
    “Our vision is so limited we can hardly imagine a love that does not show itself in protection from suffering. The love of God is of a different nature altogether. It does not hate tragedy. It never denies reality. It stands in the very teeth of suffering. The love of God did not protect His own Son. The cross was the proof of His love – that He gave that Son, that He let Him go to Calvary’s cross, though “legions of angels” might have rescued Him. He will not necessarily protect us - not from anything it takes to make us like His Son. A lot of hammering and chiseling and purifying by fire will have to go into the process.”
    Elisabeth Elliot

    Elisabeth Elliot
    “[Amy Carmichael's] great longing was to have a "single eye" for the glory of God. Whatever might blur the vision God had give her of His work, whatever could distract or deceive or tempt other to seek anything but the Lord Jesus Himself she tried to eliminate.”
    Elisabeth Elliot, A Chance to Die: The Life and Legacy of Amy Carmichael

  • #28
    Elisabeth Elliot
    “Leave it all in the Hands that were wounded for you”
    Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart

  • #29
    Elisabeth Elliot
    “The willingness to be and to have just what God wants us to be and have, nothing more, nothing less, and nothing else, would set our hearts at rest, and we would discover the simpler life,
    the greater peace.”
    Elisabeth Elliot

  • #30
    Elisabeth Elliot
    “By trying to grab fulfillment everywhere, we find it nowhere.”
    Elisabeth Elliot, Passion and Purity
