Remembering Elisabeth Elliot: Day 4

Anastasis Faith
Today we are continuing Day 4 of our special series! Thank you to Tyler Smith with Logos Talk who compiled this list of her most famous quotes.

Also, I highly encourage you all to pick up some of Elisabeth Elliot’s books. Through Gates of Splendor tells the story of her and her husband’s mission to the Auca Indians of Ecuador.

“God never withholds 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

  1. Well honestly, God has said no to a bunch of things and so far, I haven't gotten anything better. But I'm learning to trust God's plan, so I trust that its coming. :)

    1. It's so comforting to know that even what might FEEL bad at the time will, in the end, be for our good! :)


Leave a comment! I read every one of them.
