Corrie ten Boom Quote: “We are born into God’s kingdom when we ask the Lord Jesus to come into our lives. But this is only the beginning.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “And so Betsie and I arrived in Barracks 8 in the small hours of that morning, bringing not only the Bible, but a new knowledge of the power of Him whose story it was.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “Books do not age as you or I do, they will speak on to generations we will never see.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “And I’ve never met anybody who said that they were sorry that the Lord Jesus had entered their hearts.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “Willem led Father up to the desk. The Gestapo chief leaned forward. “I’d like to send you home, old fellow,” he said. “I’ll take your word that you won’t cause any more trouble.” I could not see Father’s face, only the erect carriage of his shoulders and the halo of white hair above them. But I heard his answer. “If I go home today,” he said evenly and clearly, “tomorrow I will open my door again to any man in need who knocks.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “What I have to say is of no importance. Let me tell you what the Son of God had to say.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “Love. How did one show it? How could God Himself show truth and love at the same time in a world like this? By dying. The answer stood out for me sharper and chillier than it ever had before that night: the shape of a Cross etched on the history of the world.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “Corrie, if people can be taught to hate, they can be taught to love! We must find the way, you and I, no matter how long it takes.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “Betsie saw where I was looking and laid a bird-thin hand over the whip mark. “Don’t look at it, Corrie. Look at Jesus only.” She drew away her hand: it was sticky with blood.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “Betsie, if I hadn’t heard you in the kitchen – ” But Betsie put a finger on my mouth. “Don’t say it, Corrie! There are no ‘ifs’ in God’s world. And no places that are safer than other places. The center of His will is our only safety – Oh Corrie, let us pray that we may always know it!” T.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “My job was simply to follow His leading one step at a time, holding every decision up to Him in prayer.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “Will you carry it off the train, Corrie?” he said. I stood up and tugged at it. It was crammed with the watches and spare parts he had purchased that morning. “It’s too heavy,” I said. “Yes,” he said. “And it would be a pretty poor father who would ask his little girl to carry such a load. It’s the same way, Corrie, with knowledge. Some knowledge is too heavy for children. When you are older and stronger you can bear it. For now you must trust me to carry it for you.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “But always they featured things we believed were wrong in the sight of God. Stealing, lying, murder. Was this what God wanted in times like these? How should a Christian act when evil was in power?”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “And suddenly I realized that this too was a message, a last wordless communication among neighbors. For I, too, had a hiding place when things were bad. Jesus was this place, the Rock cleft for me. I pressed a finger to the tiny crevice.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “At last either Betsie or I would open the Bible. Because only the Hollanders could understand the Dutch text, we would translate aloud in German. And then we would hear the life-giving words passed back along the aisles in French, Polish, Russian, Czech, back into Dutch. They were little previews of heaven, these evenings beneath the lightbulb.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “My little hobby. Book Collecting. And yet, old friends, books do not age as you and I do. They will speak still when we are gone, to generations we will never see. Yes, the books must survive. -Bulldog.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “Forgiveness is the key which unlocks the door of resentment and the handcuffs of hatred. It breaks the chains of bitterness and the shackles of selfishness. The forgiveness of Jesus not only takes away our sins, it makes them as if they had never been.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “It says,” I began slowly, “that a Light has come into this world, so that we need no longer walk in the dark. Is there darkness in your life, Lieutenant?”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “I prayed to dispel my fear, until suddenly, and I do not know how the idea came to me, I began to pray for others. I prayed for everyone who came into my thoughts – – people with whom I had traveled, those who had been in prison with me, my school friends of years ago. I do not know how long I continued my prayer, but this I do know – – my fear was gone! Interceding for others had released me!”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “Dear Jesus, I thank You that we must come with empty hands. I thank You that You have done all – all – on the cross, and that all we need in life or death is to be sure of this.” Mama threw her arms around her and they clung together. But I stood rooted to the spot, knowing that I had seen a mystery.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “To whomever she speaks, African students on the shores of Lake Victoria, farmers in a Cuban sugar field, prisoners in an English penitentiary or factory workers in Uzbekistan, she brings the truth they learned in Ravensbruck: Jesus can turn loss into glory.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “And the reason the thoughts kept coming back to me was that I kept turning their sin over in my mind. And so I discovered another of God’s principles: We can trust God not only for our emotions but also for our thoughts. As I asked Him to renew my mind, He also took away my thoughts.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “One, the observable, external life, grew every day more horrible. The other, the life we lived with God, grew daily better, truth upon truth, glory upon glory.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “Unseen by either of us, Father had appeared in the doorway. “Give the child to me, Corrie,” he said. Father held the baby close, his white beard brushed its cheek, looking into the little face with eyes as blue and innocent as the baby’s own. At last he looked up at the pastor. “You say we could lose our lives for this child. I would consider that the greatest honor that could come to my family.” The pastor turned sharply on his heels and walked out of the room.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “A well-known psychologist once said, ‘When a child reaches his third birthday, his parents will have given him half of all that they will ever be able to give him in the way of education.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “Wherever she was, at work, in the food line, in the dormitory, Betsie spoke to those around her about His nearness and His yearning to come into their lives. As her body grew weaker, her faith seemed to grow bolder. And sick call was “such and important place, Corrie! Some of these people are at the threshold of heaven!”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “The minister spoke in a well-modulated voice. Then we joined in singing. I could not help but make comparisons: the dirty prison dormitory, infection-ridden and filthy, the beds full of lice, and now this. Clean sheets and pillow cases and a spotless floor. The hoarse voices of the slave drivers and the mature, melodious voice of the minister. Only the singing was the same, for we had sung at Ravensbruck. Singing was one of the ways we kept up our courage.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “We commented to her about the practicalness of everything she recalled, how her memories seemed to throw a spotlight on problems and decisions we faced here and now. “But,” she said, “this is what the past is for! Every experience God gives us, every person He puts in our lives is the perfect preparation for the future that only He can see.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “It is not on our forgiveness any more than on our goodness that the world’s healing hinges, but His. When He tells us to love our enemies, He gives, along with the command, the love itself.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “I knew my life had been given back for a purpose.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “Oh Father! Betsie! If I had known would.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “I became the first licensed woman watchmaker in Holland. And.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “It was one thing to believe that such things were possible thousands of years ago, another to have it happen now, to us, this very day.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “The real sin lay in thinking that any power to help and transform came from me. Of course it was not my wholeness, but Christ’s that made the difference.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “When He tells you to love your enemies, He gives you the love that He demands from you.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “This was evil’s hour: we could not run away from it. Perhaps only when human effort had done its best and failed, would God’s power alone be free to work.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “To Tanta Yanns the clothes in fashion when she was young represented God’s final say on human apparel. All change since then came from the style book of the devil.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “When I enter that beautiful city, And the saints all around me appear, I hope that someone will tell me: it was you who invited me here.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “Every day of my life had ended like this: that deep steady voice, that sure and eager confiding of us all to the care of God. The Bible lay at home on its shelf, but much of it was stored in his heart.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “And even if it wasn’t right – it wasn’t so very wrong, was it? Not wrong like sadism and murder and the other monstrous evils we saw in Ravensbruck every day. Oh, this was the great ploy of Satan in that kingdom of his: to display such blatant evil that one could almost believe one’s own secret sins didn’t matter.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “Dear Jesus, I thank You that we must come with empty hands. I thank You that You have done all – all – on the cross, and that all we need in life or death is to be sure of this.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “You are not called to convince anyone. You are simply called to be an open channel for the Spirit of God to flow through.”
Corrie ten Boom Quote: “Oh, my dears, I am sorry for all Dutchmen now who do not know the power of God. For we will be beaten. But He will not.”
