“Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.” ― Corrie Ten Boom, author of The Hiding Place Grace, courage & faith in a concentration camp. I first read The Hiding Place when I was 9 and its power has stayed with me.
“Worrying is carrying tomorrow's load with today's strength.It is moving into tomorrow ahead of time. Worrying doesn't empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.” Corrie ten Boom: WWII heroine and concentration camp survivor
Mother Teresa of Calcutta on Kindness: “Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.
Worrying is carrying tomorrow's load with today's strength — carrying two days at once. It is moving into tomorrow ahead of time. Worrying does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow; it empties today of its strength. ("The Hiding Place")
Life is like an old time rail journey…delays…sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling burst of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride.
