Let Me Be a Woman by Elisabeth Elliot
“The way we live ought to manifest the truth of what we believe. A messy life speaks of a messy and incoherent faith.”
Elisabeth Elliot

“Think of the self that God has given as an acorn. It is a marvelous little thing, a perfect shape, perfectly designed for its purpose, perfectly functional. Think of the grand glory of an oak tree. God’s intention when He made the acorn was the oak tree. His intention for us is ‘… the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.’ Many deaths must go into our reaching that measure, many letting-goes. When you look at the oak tree, you don’t feel that the loss’ of the acorn is a very great loss. The more you perceive God’s purpose in your life, the less terrible the losses seem.”
Elisabeth Elliot

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

Elisabeth Elliot
“I realized that the deepest spiritual lessons are not learned by His letting us have our way in the end, but by His making us wait, bearing with us in love and patience until we are able to honestly to pray what He taught His disciples to pray: Thy will be done.”
Elisabeth Elliot, Passion and Purity: Learning to Bring Your Love Life Under Christ's Control

Elisabeth Elliot
“But the question to precede all others, which finally determines the course of our lives is What do I really want? Was it to love what God commands, in the words of the collect, and to desire what He promises? Did I want what I wanted, or did I want what He wanted, no matter what it might cost?”
Elisabeth Elliot, Passion and Purity: Learning to Bring Your Love Life Under Christ's Control

Elisabeth Elliot
“If we hold tightly to anything given to us unwilling to allow it to be used as the Giver means it to be used we stunt the growth of the soul. What God gives us is not necessarily "ours" but only ours to offer back to him, ours to relinguish, ours to lose, ours to let go of, if we want to be our true selves. Many deaths must go into reaching our maturity in Christ, many letting goes.”
Elisabeth Elliot, Passion and Purity: Learning to Bring Your Love Life Under Christ's Control

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
