Quote of the Day
"I like to picture the Lord handing me a platter at the beginning of each day. On it are the things he has chosen as best for me, and my prayer for daily bread is answered. My part is to receive whatever he gives. Guidance for a decision that need not be final until next Wednesday may require one small move or commitment today. I accept that and act on it without haggling with God because he has not yet granted me all the information I'm itching for. Perhaps patience is his gift of bread for today, or quietness, or the gift of uncertainty, that I may rest in his love, confident that when the time is ripe, the guidance will be clear.
...We can pray with perfect confidence, 'Deliver us from evil,' knowing that he may hurt us, but will never harm us."
~ Elizabeth Elliot
"Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth think hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me. The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands." Psalm 138:7-8
