This love of which I speak is slow to lose patience - it looks for a way of being constructive.Love is not possessive.Love is not anxious to impress nor does it cherish inflated ideas of its own ideas.Love has good manners and does not pursue selfish advantage.Love is not touchy.Love does not keep account of evil or gloat over the wickedness of other people. On the contrary it is glad with all good men when truth prevails.Love knows no limits to its endurance no end to its trust no fading of its hope it can outlast anything. It is in fact the one thing that stands when all else has fallen.
Famous Quotes from Elisabeth Elliot
God withholds blessing only in wisdom never in spite or aloofness.
Cold prayers like cold suitors are seldom effective in their aims.
Do you often feel like parched ground unable to produce anything worthwhile I do. When I am in need of refreshment it isnt easy to think of the needs of others. But I have found that if instead of praying for my own comfort and satisfaction I ask the Lord to enable me to give to others an amazing thing often happens - I find my own needs wonderfully met. Refreshment comes in ways I would never have thought of both for others and then incidentally for myself.
