Elisabeth Elliot

“The peace of God means the absence of conflict with the will of God. It means harmony within, concord with his purpose for our lives.”

– Elisabeth Elliot, All That Was Ever Ours…

 

“Strive to choose, not that which is easiest, but that which is most difficult. Do not deprive your soul of the agility which it needs to mount up to Him.”

– St. John of the Cross, quoted in Elisabeth Elliot, Discipline: The Glad Surrender

 

“Discipline is the wholehearted yes to the call of God. When I know myself called, summoned, addressed, taken possession of, known, acted upon, I have heard the Master. I put myself gladly, fully, and forever at His disposal, and to whatever He says my answer is yes.”

– Elisabeth Elliot, Discipline: The Glad Surrender

 

“A quiet steadfast holding of the human will to the will of God and a peaceful resting in His love and care is of infinitely greater value in the religious life than the most intense emotions or the most wonderful experiences that have ever been known by the greatest mystic of them all.”

– Hannah Whitall Smith, Religious Foundations, quoted in Elisabeth Elliot, Discipline: The Glad Surrender
