  1. Amen. Thank you for sharing!

    I was just thinking about Elisabeth Elliot’s story a couple of days ago. I think about her from time to time, and I am still amazed and encouraged each time. Hers is a compelling example of true love and forgiveness. When I think about her story, it seems downright silly not to forgive. And this is only one aspect of the impact she and her husband’s lives have had on so many.

    Thanks for sharing! It is wonderful to see her legacy being carried on. May God bless it!

  2. I feel like Elisabeth Elliot would have definitely been included in the Bible, had it been written in modern day. I can’t wait to get my hands on this devotional and share it!

  3. This is so beautiful My sister In law loves Elisabeth Elliot. I would love to win a copy for her

  4. I have never heard of Elisabeth Elliot. She is an incredible woman, to return to live amongst the people who killed her husband. What a gift to find her writings simply sitting there in a WORD document! Thank you for the chance to win a copy of Elisabeth’s book.

  5. This is incredible! I was recently sharing an excerpt from one of Elisabeth Elliot’s previous books with a client of mine, and my mom is a big fan of her too. Already she’s impacted two generations of our family and how lovely to read her new book and share with a new one. This will make a great birthday present for my mom 🙂

  6. This devotional was very timely as I am praying for my elderly aunt’s declining health and for my elderly mom who is taking care of her. A beautiful reminder that God cares for us, and wants us to cast our cares and worries on him. Thank you for sharing these beautiful words.

  7. Beautiful… what an amazing example how to allow God’s love shine and live in your life… forgiving/loving those who were against you and your loves…. the heart of Jesus!

  8. What a beautiful reminder again of God’s care and love for us in our pain.
    Have been blessed so many times by Elizabeth’s writings!

  9. Thank you for the wonderful message, I really needed to hear this today. I’m struggling with many different issues today. Thank you again Judy

  10. The definition of cast being to throw on another is so powerful. Thank you for sharing! Only Jesus is strong enough to have heavy burdens thrown at Him! Wow, wow, wow!

  11. This was just what I needed to read today. My family had been going through a tough time and to be reminded that God is with us loving us through this time was timely today.

  12. Sometimes I don’t have the energy to cast my cares, yet I know God lifts them when all I can say is “help”.

  13. God has brought this verse 1Peter 5:7 into to my life now for the third day in a row! I think He may be telling me I need this devotional.

  14. This has been an interesting year. I am getting ready to move. I have lost a friendship or so it seems. A friendship that was newer to me & very dear to me. I have asked for time to talk by ourselves & I am usually the one finding time alone for us to talk. All of that to say, this sounds like the perfect reading companion for when I get moved & can take a moment to relax. Thank you for providing another opportunity to win.

  15. “Heart of God” sounds like an amazing book for anyone who is struggling and feels alone, which actually includes pretty much everyone in the world today. I think this would be a great book to share with my Cancer Warriors Group – many of the women are currently in cancer treatment and the others continue to battle post treatment.

  16. Such a beautiful reminder of how God is always taking care of us.
    Thank you for the opportunity to receive this new devotional book.

  17. Elizabeth Elliot is a wonderful source of encouragement to me! I’m just finishing the book “Suffering is Never for Nothing.”It’s a book written from one of her conferences & it is such a perspective giver! One idea that really blesses me is that our struggles are “gifts” and we can offer them back up to God, even if just in the form of a broken and contrite heart. This encourages me that nothing we go through is wasted when we have faith in Christ.

  18. I was touched by the reading about God’s love. I am all alone & truly have no one left that cares. My Dr’s have asked who to notify in case of an emergency & I said “the Lord”, tell Him I am ready to come home! I would love to read this book but don’t have the funds for it. Thank you for sharing this inspiring excerpt. It truly touched my heart! God’s blessings to your ministry!

  19. I have so often during these unending, horrific storms -of personal problems, aging issues, loneliness and isolation, worry and fear surrounding the pandemic, great sadness over the effects of severe weather, and political turmoil, wondered if I was bothering God.. Throughout the day , I cry out “Help me God! I am going under again and again,,,I am at the end of my rope” I can’t take any more” …
    Theni get disturbing phone calls, email from family and friends who are in trouble and/or Daily pray for people on my prayer lisT – 100 ! and I cry out in anguish HELP US< GOD, wondering am i bothering God/ SO much gratitude for this post!!!


  20. “Cast your cares on Him.” I’ve read this quite a few times. I hadn’t forgotten it. Yet, I need reminded of this so very important ‘command’–especially now, one year after my husband’s stroke, when his condition is worsening.

  21. The book is beautiful and the words are comforting…I’d love to have a book donated to me, lost everything in the fire and can’t afford anything at this time TYIA god bless.

  22. In Courage,

    Elizabeth Elliott is one of a few who commit their lives to Christ. They give up worldly possessions for a life of giving & caring for others. Theirs is an other centered life. They know that God loves & cares for them so much that He sent His only son to die a horrible death for us all.

    When trials & frustrations come my way I simply cast my cares on God. I go to Him in prayer & ask Him to help me. It soothes & calms my weary soul.

    Blessings 🙂
