"We want to avoid suffering, death, sin, ashes. But we live in a world crushed and broken and torn, A WORLD GOD HIMSELF VISITED TO REDEEM. We receive His poured-out life, and being allowed the high privilege of suffering with Him, may then pour ourselves out for others." ~ Elisabeth Elliot
Our daughter Valerie was 10 months old when my husband, Jim, was killed. I continued working with the Quichua Indians when, through a remarkable providence, I met two Auca women who lived with me for one year. They were the key to my going in to live with the tribe that had killed the five missionaries. I remained there for two years. ~Elisabeth Elliot http://www.pinterest.com/peaceomyheart/black-and-white-in-a-grey-world/
"Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes don't see as well and you get loose in the joints and they are very shabby. "But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand" - The Velveteen Rabbit
"Faith is not an instinct... not a feeling - feelings don't help much when you're in the lions' den or hanging on a wooden Cross... IT IS AN ACT OF WILL, a choice, BASED on the unbreakable Word of a God who cannot lie... and sacrifice... of Jesus Christ." ~ Elisabeth Elliot
End of the Spear movie. Based on a true story about Steve Saint, Jim Elliot and Elizabeth Elliot, and other missionaries who witnessed to and forgave tribal people in Ecuador. Definitely an eye-opener.
