Some Quotes by Amy Carmichael

 “Sometimes when we read the
words of those who have been more than conquerors, we feel almost despondent. I
feel that I shall never be like that. But they won through step by step, by
little bits of wills, little denials of self, little inward victories, by
faithfulness in very little things. They became what they are. No one sees
these little hidden steps. They only see the accomplishment, but even so, those
small steps were taken. There is no sudden triumph, no spiritual maturity. That
is the work of the moment.”

“It is not the place where we are, or the work that we do or cannot do that matters, it is something else. It is the fire within that burns and shines, whatever be our circumstances.”

“I would rather burn out than rust out.”

“It is a safe thing to trust Him to fulfill the desires which He creates.”

“Now you are deep in what seems to me a peculiarly selfless service. The spiritual training of children must be that. You work for the years you will not see. You work for the Invisible all the time, but you work for the Eternal. So it is all worthwhile.”

“There have been times of late when I have had to hold on to one text with all my might: “It is required in stewards that a man may be found faithful.” Praise God, it does not say “successful”.”

“Our enemy is more aware than we are of the spiritual possibilities that depend upon obedience.”
