Passion and Purity

"There was nothing I was experiencing that He had not been through in some form. The love that is everlasting had entered this world, my world, my very heart, known its struggles, shared its weakness and perplexity. None of those things, then, would separate me from His love."
-Elisabeth Elliot, Passion and Purity

Ladies, this book...oh, this book. So wonderful. Had it not been one I had borrowed, I would've highlighted SO much! So instead, I just copied a bunch of stuff into my journal. ;) The quote above is one of the many inspiring, encouraging moments in this book.
This book is about surrendering everything to Christ, and truly living for Him alone, relying on Him, trusting Him. It's a very challenging book, and I constantly found myself thinking "I could never do this!!" (Elisabeth Elliot has to wait 5 years before she knows for sure that the man she's in love with will marry her. Yikes.) But since I finished it, it's been on my mind nonstop, and I just want to reread it! Through sharing journal entries of her own, letters from that man, Jim Elliot, and tons and tons of scripture, the author provides so much encouragement. At least for me, she did ;)
Main point: if you're ever looking for a book on relationships, purity, dating, I absolutely recommend this one. Simply amazing.
