this job

I came across this quote yesterday via Rosina W. Photography's instagram and I can't stop thinking about it. It has already been scribbled in my journal, and I am pretty sure it is also going to make it onto my fridge to keep in view as a constant reminder. I think it is one of those quotes that pretty much all of us can relate to, whatever season of life we are in.

"This job has been given to me to do. Therefore, it is a gift. Therefore, it is a  privilege. Therefore, it is an offering I may make to God. Therefore, it is to be done gladly, if it is done for Him. Here, not somewhere else, I may learn God's way. In this job, not in some other, God looks for faithfulness." 
-Elizabeth Elliot

Hope you are having a lovely week, sweet friends!

P.S. And thank you ever so much for all of the kind words about our happy news! All of us are completely over the moon excited and I can't wait to share more details soon! xo


  1. LOVE Elisabeth Elliot...I have so many quotes posted around our house (chalkboards, bathroom mirror, fridge, cabinet doors), it's starting to look like I have a quote fetish--but I just may make room for this one!

  2. This is beautiful, Andrea, thank you for sharing.

  3. I'm a lurker; not sure where or how I found you! Maybe a link from someone else's ten on ten? Anyway, thanks for sharing this quote. It can be tough some days to remember that wherever we are, is where God has placed us and He will use us, right there!

  4. Just what I needed to hear today. Thanks for sharing :). And I can't wait to hear the boy/girl news!!!

  5. Such a great quote. Thanks for sharing, Andi! And congratulations! I've been away from blogland too long! We are so excited for you and your growing family!!! Praise God!
