I began reading Corrie ten Boom’s, Tramp for the Lord this week. The library card has my last read-date: 1996. I love it as much now as I did then. Her story is inspiring and timeless.
As I read I am taking note of the marvelous quotes that speak to me. Her legacy lives on through her penned words. Lives are being touched though she has been gone since 1983.
It is words like these that fill my sails with hope to continue on life’s journey:
I soon discovered that man’s importunity is God’s opportunity. He uses our problems as building materials for His miracles. p. 35
God has plans—not problems—for our lives. p. 10
Before she died in the concentration camp in Ravensbruck, 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.” p. 11
…whether I am walking in the bright light of His presence , or abiding under the shadow of the Almighty, I know that He is not only with me, He is in me. p. 63
I’ve only begun reading, yet what a treasure trove of encouragement! Every believer, like Corrie, is leaving behind hope for the next generation. What will your message be?
