Below is a selection of quotations from Corrie ten Boom.
There is no pit so deep that God’s love is not deeper still.
The measure of a life, after all, is not its duration, but its donation.
God has plans - not problems - for our lives. Before she died in the concentration camp in Ravensbrück, my sister Betsie said to me, “Corrie, your whole life has been a training for the work you are doing here in prison - and for the work you will do afterward.”
Trying to do the Lord’s work in your own strength is the most confusing, exhausting and tedious of all work. But when you are filled with the Holy Spirit, then the ministry of Jesus just flows out of you.
The best learning I had came from teaching.
Every experience God gives us, every person that He puts into our lives, is the perfect preparation for the future that only He can see.
Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength. It does not enable us to escape evil. It makes us unfit to face evil when it comes. It is the interest you pay on trouble before it comes.
Any concern too small to be turned into a prayer is too small to be made into a burden.
