On Keeping a Quiet Heart

The Elisabeth Elliot Foundation channel on YouTube is greatly blessing Mom and me.

The inimitable Elisabeth Elliot said that the way to keep a quiet heart is "to put your whole trust in God who is rational, personal, loving, and in charge of the whole universe and every detail of our lives."

Furthermore, she advised, out of the many plot twists and losses of her life, "The secret [of keeping a quiet heart] is Christ in me, not me in a different set of circumstances." Ouch. But a hopeful ouch.

Lord, we trust You. Forgive, cleanse, and help our lack of trust. Abba Father, as You wish.
