Launching Them Out Into The Water

Elisabeth Elliot Quotes

“There comes a time – many times, actually – in the lives of our children

where we have to put the basket in the water. We have to let go and trust

the plan of the Father. The world is a scary place – a place where we fear

our children could drown. But we must remember that we have to let go

so that God can draw them from the waters for His great purpose. He has

called us to be their parents, but they were His first.


My friend, whatever water you may be getting ready to put your basket into

– remember that you have to put them in the water for God to draw them out

and place them into His perfect plan. Though you might not be physically

present with your child as much during the next phase of life, you can always

petition the heart of the Father on their behalf.”
