“The most extravagant dreams of boyhood…” Jim Elliot

Born to be an adventurer

Born to be an adventurer

“‘Nothing is too good to be: so believe, believe to see.’

In my own experience, I have found that the most extravagant dreams of boyhood have not surpassed the great experience of being in the Will of God, and I believe that nothing could be better.

That is not to say that I do not want other things, and other ways of living, and other places to see, but in my right mind I know that my hopes and plans for myself could not be any better than He has arranged and fulfilled them. Thus may we all find it, and know the truth of the Word which says, ‘He will be our guide even until death.'”

Jim Elliot (1927 – 1956, died as a martyr at 28)
