I am currently reading Passion and Purity: Learning to Bring Your Love Life Under Christ’s Control by Elisabeth Elliot. I read this book when I was 17 and it gave me hope that someday my relationship with Luke would be restored to me. However, I personally believe this book is worth re-reading many times. So, here I am reading it again! I want to share a quote that to me was WOW! There is nothing new under the sun, and this quote puts words to what has gone on in my heart!
“If there is an Enemy of Souls (and I have not the slightest doubt that there is), one thing he cannot abide is the desire for purity. Hence a man or woman’s passions become his battleground. The Lover of Souls does not prevent this. I was perplexed because it seemed to me that He should prevent it, but he doesn’t. He wants us to learn to use our weapons.” Elisabeth Elliot, Passion and Purity
