Remembering Elisabeth Elliot: Day 19

Anastasis Faith
“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.”
-Elisabeth Elliot

God’s love for us was dying on a cross. It was dirty, bloody, ugly, and painful. The love of God is much higher than our human minds can fathom!

The lady who wrote this quote was a woman whose husband had died by spearing on the mission field in South America. This woman knew about tragedy. And yet she turned her gaze to God, understanding that tragedy doesn’t mean a lack of love.
