• “Loneliness is a required course for leadership.” – Elisabeth Elliot

I am not skiller to understand by Dora Greenwell

1 I am not skilled to understand
what God has willed, what God has planned;
I only know that at his right hand
is One who is my Savior!

2 I take him at his word indeed:
“Christ died for sinners,” this I read;
for in my heart I find a need
of him to be my Savior!

3 That he should leave his place on high
and come for sinful man to die,
you count it strange? So once did I,
before I knew my Savior!

4 And oh, that he fulfilled may see
the travail of his soul in me,
and with his work contented be,
as I with my dear Savior!

5 Yes, living, dying, let me bring
my strength, my solace from this spring;
that he who lives to be my King
once died to be my Savior.

  • “If we do anything to further the kingdom of God, we may expect to find what Christ found on that road – abuse, indifference, injustice, misunderstanding, trouble of some kind. Take it. Why not? To that you were called. If we think of the glorious fact that we are on the same path with Jesus, we might see a rainbow.” – Elisabeth Elliot
