Waiting on God requires the willingness to bear uncertainty,
to carry within oneself the unanswered question,
lifting the heart to God about it
whenever it intrudes upon one’s thoughts.
~ Elisabeth Elliot
Short and simple words posted on Facebook by my dear friend, Tami Heim, this week, and I haven’t been able to get them out of my head. I believe this quote is from Elisabeth’s book, Passion and Purity: Learning to Bring Your Love Life Under Christ’s Control.
But since so many of us long for things beyond our control, I think these words are for us, too.
Have a beautiful weekend with some space to breathe.
In the stillness,
Welcome to the Still Saturday Community where we pause after a busy week, move in quiet pilgrimage, maybe linger a while in some still place, and soak in the beauty of images and reflect on the depth of sparse words. We’d love for you to join us. Grab the button and link up below. We all love to hear if something especially speaks to your heart, but please don’t feel pressured to comment. Simply take some time to be still together, to gaze long and drink deep.
