Well. I kinda, sorta, love acorns. It all started when I read this:
”God’s ultimate plan was as far beyond our imaginings as the oak tree is from the acorn’s imaginings. The acorn does what it was made to do, without pestering its Maker with questions about when and how and why. We who have been given an intelligence and a will and a whole range of wants that can be set against the divine Pattern for Good are asked to believe Him. We are given the chance to trust Him when He says to us:
If any man will let himself be lost for my sake, he will find his true self.
"When will we find it?” We ask.
The answer is: Trust Me.
“How will we find it?”
The answer again is: Trust Me.
“Why must I let myself be lost?” We persist.
The answer is: Look to the acorn and Trust Me.“
-Elisabeth Elliot (Passion and Purity)
Since then, Look to the Acorn has been my mantra. I love the journey, the getting lost in order to become what we're intended. And that's what this blog is all about.
