Elisabeth Elliot on Trust

Filed under: Notable Quotables — aunthoddy @ 5:00 AM

“I like to plan. I like to have things mapped out well in advance, and uncertainty of any sort puts me on edge. Perhaps it is for this very reason God has often asked me to wait until the last minute, right up to what looked like the screaming edge, before I found out what he wanted me to do. My acceptance of his timing was a rigorous exercise in trust. I was tempted to charge the Lord with negligence and inattention, like the disciples in the boat in a storm. . . . It was not too late. Jesus got up and merely spoke to the wind and the sea.” _ Elisabeth Elliot, God’s Guidance, Finding His Will for Your Life, Revell, pg. 74
