Wait Trustfully

Peace does not dwell in outward things, but in the heart prepared to wait trustfully and quietly on Him Who has all things safely in His hands.

—Elisabeth Elliot

I can experience inner peace even when the world around me is fighting, yelling, and falling apart. Peace cannot be bought or negotiated, true peace comes from God when I decide to wait quietly on Him.

Elisabeth Elliot’s writing has greatly influenced my life, even as a grown married woman. I truly wish someone had introduced me to her works when I was a teenager, but I am learning that it is never too late to incorporate the principles she teaches: namely, that passion is not sinful and purity is not prudish. Nor are they mutually exclusive. You can have both.
