Reflecting this evening on missions and the path before me... 

This first quote by Amy Carmichael, missionary to India, spoke deeply to me. I have fallen into this mindset before...

“If I make much of anything appointed, magnify it secretly to myself or insidiously to others; if I let them think it “hard,” if I look back longingly upon what used to be, and linger among the byways of memory, so that my power to help is weakened, then I know nothing of Calvary love.”
― Amy Carmichael

And some more... No need to rephrase in my own words; hear it straight from the mouths of those who have experienced.

"Somewhere along the way we have subtly and tragically taken the costly command of Christ to go, baptize, and teach all nations and mutated it into a comfortable call for Christians to come, be baptized, and listen in one location." –– David Platt

"Sympathy is no substitute for action." ― David Livingstone

"There is no neutral ground in the universe. Every square inch, every split second, is claimed by God and counterclaimed by Satan." ― C.S. Lewis

"Unless there is the element of extreme risk in our exploits for God, there is no need for faith." ― Hudson Taylor

"I have but one candle of life to burn, and I would rather burn it in a land filled with darkness than in a land flooded with lights." ― Ion Keith-Falconer

"He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose." ― Jim Elliot
