"Little Deaths"

Life requires countless "little deaths"- occasions when we are given the chance to say no to self and yes to God. -Elisabeth Elliot

Something worth thinking about as God continues to pry my fingers from about that which holds me. What is it He is asking me to die to?


  1. I love that quote, Martha! It seems that your book is proving to be a good read already. I will have to ponder that quote for a while.

  2. Well, I think that is the whole meaning of life. To be dead to sin and alive to God....Roman 6, v. 11 Verse 14"For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace. 15. What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not!"

    Life is a never ending learning experence. You are such an encouragement, Martha....

  3. Della, I only find it sad that I was not more willing to learn 20 years ago (or more for that matter), but God has not given up on me and for that I am grateful.
