Corrie Ten Boom was a prisoner and survivor of Ravensbruck Concentration Camp. If anyone ever had a reason to worry, it was her. Because they hid Jews in their home during WWII, Corrie, her sister, and their elderly father were imprisoned in “the deepest hell that man can create”.¹ Following are some quotes on worry from Corrie.
“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.”
“Worry is like a rocking chair; it keeps you busy but does not bring you farther.”
Corrie Ten Boom’s book, The Hiding Place, had a profound effect on me as a young adult. Her faith and trust in Jesus Christ will encourage you through any trial you may find yourself in today.
Corrie lived her life, before and after Ravensbruck, serving the Lord Jesus Christ.
“Do not be anxious or worried about anything, but in everything [every circumstance and situation] by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your [specific] requests known to God. 7 And the peace of God [that peace which reassures the heart, that peace] which transcends all understanding, [that peace which] stands guard over your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus [is yours].” Philippians 4:6-7 AMP
