Corrie ten Boom

  • When Satan cannot make you bad, he makes you busy.

  • Faith is like radar which sees straight through the fog; the reality of things at a distance that the human eye cannot see.

  • You can do more than praying after you have prayed. You can never do more than praying before you have prayed.

  • When God forgives He forgets. He buries our sins in the sea and puts a sign on the bank saying, 'No Fishing Allowed.'

  • Worry is like a rocking chair — it keeps you moving but doesn't get you anywhere.

  • A person is either a missionary or a mission field.

  • When a house is on fire and you know that there are people in it, it is a sin to straighten pictures in that house. When the world about you is in great danger, works that are in themselves not sinful can be quite wrong.

  • If a care is too small to be turned into a prayer, it is too small to be made into a burden.

  • Does being born into a Christian family make one a Christian? No! God has no grandchildren.

  • Worry is like racing the engine of an automobile without letting in the clutch.

  • Is prayer your steering wheel or your spare tire?

  • To pray only when in peril is to use safety belts only in heavy traffic.

  • Worry doesn't empty tomorrow of its sorrows, it empties today of its strength.

  • Faith sees the invisible, believes the unbelievable, and receives the impossible.
