Statue of Angel Praying Borghese Museum Rome ItalyA committed, courageous woman, Corrie ten Boom lived amidst great evil and turmoil during WWII.  Her actions of humanity and love towards the Jews were cause for the Nazis to imprison her at a concentration camp.  If anyone understood worry and fear, it would be Corrie.  But she understood so much more.  Quotes by her:

“Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.”

“Worry is a cycle of inefficient thoughts whirling around a center of fear.”
“Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.”
“When a train goes through a tunnel and it gets dark, you don’t throw away the ticket and jump off. You sit still and trust the engineer.”
“The wonderful thing about praying is that you leave a world of not being able to do something, and enter God’s realm where everything is possible. He specializes in the impossible. Nothing is too great for His almighty power. Nothing is too small for His love.”
“Forgiveness is the key that unlocks the door of resentment and the handcuffs of hatred. It is a power that breaks the chains of bitterness and the shackles of selfishness.”
