Jesus Only.


“Perhaps some future day, Lord, Thy strong hand
Will lead me to the place where I must stand
Utterly alone.

Alone, O Gracious Lover, but for Thee;
I shall be satisfied if I can see
Jesus only.

I do not know Thy plan for years to come,
My spirit finds in Thee its perfect home,

Lord, all my desire is before Thee now,
Lead on, no matter where, no matter how-
I trust in Thee.”

~Elisabeth Elliot


Friends, I want to be found faithful. I want to be found faithful when I stand before my Father’s throne. I want to be found faithful 50 years from now. I want to be found faithful tomorrow and this very moment. All of me, all for Him. Nothing held back. All Jesus. I want to be a disciple of the Living God – not just in word, but in the very depths of who I am.

Today, I am not doing anything grand nor glorious. I am not serving on a foreign mission field. I am not running a soup kitchen. I am not suffering for my faith. But I am ALIVE.

And as long I am ALIVE, I will be FAITHFUL. I will be faithful when no one else sees. I will be faithful when I don’t know what tomorrow holds. I will be faithful in the daily deeds and in those things that seem insignificant [but really aren’t].

As long as I live.

And when this life is over, I will stand before my Lord. And my heart will leap as I hear those words, “Well done.”

His Girl,
