“The question is not whether you ever gave yourself to God, but whether you are His now.”
Elizabeth Payson Prentiss, Stepping Heavenward

“Our course heavenward is like the plan of the zealous pilgrim of old, who for every three steps forward, took one backward.”
Elizabeth Payson Prentiss, Stepping Heavenward

“But you will imagine that it is best that He should at once enable you to see clearly. If it is, you may be sure He will do it. He never makes mistakes. But He often deals far differently with His disciples. He lets them grope their way in the dark until they fully learn how blind they are, how helpless, how absolutely in need of Him. What His methods will be with you I cannot foretell. But you may be sure that He never works in an arbitrary way. He has a reason for everything He does. You may not understand why He leads you now in this way and now in that, but you may, nay, you must believe that perfection is stamped on His every act.”
Elizabeth Payson Prentiss, Stepping Heavenward
