"To me, the commandments, all that the Word of God comprises,
are a lamp."--Elisabeth Elliot
Elisabeth Elliot had an early acquaintance with the Bible. Before she could read or write, God's holy words were read aloud to her twice a day. In her life, this gift of a deep and personal association with Scripture has been priceless: a drink in times of thirst, an inspiration in times of fear, and a light in times of darkness. Join Elisabeth Elliot for six months of daily meditations, each holding the power to bring you deeper into God's abiding love.

“An older missionary said something to Amy Carmichael when she was a young missionary that stayed with her for life. She had spoken of something that was not to her liking. His reply was, ‘See in it a chance to die.’” (source)
“When faith latches on to those realities that we do not see with our eyes, it can never be confounded. If it makes the thing asked for its object, faith itself will dissolve if the Lord’s answer is no, not yet or wait.” (source)
