7 Disciplines for the Believer’s Life
Finding freedom and happiness in divine surrender
In our age of instant gratification and if-it-feels-good-do-it attitudes, self-discipline is often overlooked. Yet it may be one of the most important lost virtues of our time. In Joyful Surrender, former missionary and beloved author Elisabeth Elliot offers her understanding of discipline and its value for people of all times. She shows you how to
· discipline your mind, body, possessions, time, and feelings
· overcome anxiety
· change poor habits and attitudes
· trust God in times of trial and hardship
· let Him have control in all areas of life
Elliot masterfully and gently takes you through Scripture, personal stories, and incisive observations to help you discover the understanding that your fulfillment as a human being depends on your answer to God's call to obedience.
Elisabeth Elliot (1926-2015) was one of the most perceptive and popular Christian writers of the last century.
