“A willing acceptance of all that God assigns and a glad surrender of all that I am and have constitute the key to receiving the gift of a quiet heart. Whenever I have balked, the quietness goes. It is restored, and life immeasurably simplified, when I have trusted and obeyed.” ~Elisabeth Elliot
Living cross-culturally means I'll never quite understand my neighbors, and they will never quite understand me. I pray that God will fill me with His love for the people around me and give me insight into their way of life. At the same time, I pray that I will choose thanksgiving and contentment in the place God has planted me.
