The Gift

From Let Me Be a Woman by Elisabeth Elliot, p. 31

"....a stage [of life] is a gift.  God may replace it with another gift, but the receivor accepts His gifts with thanksgiving.  This gift for this day.  The life of faith is lived one day at a time, and it has to be lived - not always looked forward to as though the 'real' living were around the corner.  It is today for which we are responsible.  God still owns tomorrow".


  1. Great Quote! A reminder to 'live this moment'. EE is one of my favourite authors.

  2. Amen! Except that I would add that God's grace is sufficient even for today!

  3. Thanks for sharing! This is a great quote!
