Elisabeth Elliot on Surrender

“Do the ways of God seem strange to some who are honestly seeking only to be good and faithful servants?  There are strong winds, silent years of stress, deaths to be died.  The One we serve has not left us without inside information as to the why.  All who would bring their souls to God must do so with surrender and sacrifice.  This is what loving God means, a continual offering, a pure readiness to give oneself away, a happy obedience.  There is no question, ‘But what about me?’  for all the motivation is love.  All interests, all impulses, all energies are to be subjugated to that supreme passion.”
