Thoughtful Thursday


"Where does your security lie?  Is God your refuge, your hiding place, your stronghold, your shepherd, your counselor, your friend, your redeemer, your saviour, your guide?  if He is, you don't need to search any further for security."

~ Elisabeth Elliot
"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."   
~ Matthew 11:28

Love that quote and the scripture and image you used to go with it. Elisabeth Elliot was such a woman of Godly wisdom. I have gained so much from the books I've read that she's written. Thanks for this lovely place of encouragement for young women. ~ Abby
