  • Dear Jesus...how foolish of me to have called for human help when You are here.
    (Corrie Ten Boom, "The Hiding Place")

  • Do you know what hurts so very much? It's love. Love is the strongest force in the world, and when it is blocked that means pain. There are two things we can do when this happens.

    (Corrie Ten Boom, "The Hiding Place")

  • God's viewpoint is sometimes different from ours - so different that we could not even guess at it unless He had given us a Book which tells us such things....In the Bible I learn that God values us not for our strenght or our brains but simply because He has made us.

She sat in her chair at the window and loved us. She loved the people she saw in the street-- and beyond: her love took in the city, the land of Holland, the world. And so I learned that love is larger than the walls which shut it in.
    (Corrie Ten Boom, "The Hiding Place")

    (Corrie Ten Boom, "The Hiding Place")
