We can’t ignore it. I realize that. It’s in your face whether you try to read news or just catch up on social media.
But in the face of the current idiocy we find in our culture, Psalm 101 calls me back to something key: it’s about WHERE I choose to keep my thoughts and focus.
The key is here:
My eyes will be on the faithful in the land,
that they may dwell with me;
the one whose walk is blameless
will minister to me. (Ps. 101:6)
One of the faithful in the land went to her eternal reward this week. Elisabeth Elliot was a great woman of faith and an amazing Bible teacher.
Her story won’t make the headlines like some other women (and “women”) in current weeks. But her homecoming made heaven stand up, I’m sure.
Two powerful quotes:
“Leave it all in the Hands that were wounded for you”
And this one she said every time she started a radio broadcast:
“You are loved with an everlasting love.”
