“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, Christian author, speaker, missionary to South America (1926-2015)
Hello friends– I loved reading this. It helped me know what to do with all those uncertainties, my unanswered questions, when life get complicated. It’s a comfort to know I can lift up my heart to God–all the while I’m waiting.
“Wait in hope for the Lord; for he is our help and shield.
In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name.” Psalm 33:20-21

Rhonda, I am working on a post about Elisabeth Elliot… She has been a sort of “mentor” for me even though I never had a chance to meet her. This quote is something I really needed to hear. Thank you for sharing this!
Hi Daisy– I would agree with you about all I’ve learned from her –reading her books and hearing her amazing story and her faithfulness after Jim was killed. I did get to hear her in a seminar once at the Urbana conference in 1976. I still remember some things she talked about. I’m really looking forward to your post. I do love, love your blog Daisy.
That means a lot to me coming from you! I feel the same about your blog. I’ve told my daughter about it since she is also a teacher (although she teaches High School), but I know she’ll love the recipes, book reviews, and quotes you post, along with all the beautiful photos of your adventures 🙂
