Quote from Jim Elliot- Martyr for Christ

"Always seek peace between your heart and God, but in the world, always be careful to remain ever-restless, never satisfied, always abounding in the work of the Lord." Jim Elliot

Today my heart has been tempted toward impatience. Peace has not been my hearts song. I came across this quote as I sat reflecting on what my heart needed. Kids are sweetly sleeping, the sweet songs of worship play softly in the background, and my Savior is showing me peace.

Christ...

The One who brings me to my knees. The One who fills my cups 'til it overflows. The One who never fails. The One who's mercy is new every morning. The One whom I can know true peace. And for this I am thankful....

I now experience this true peace.

I will go forth through the rest of my day with a quiet, peaceful spirit.

Because of The One.

"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you." Jn 14:27
"--but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious." 1 Pet 3:4
