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.
(Corrie ten Boom, 1892-1983)
Corrie ten Boom lived through a sort of darkness most of us will never experience. But God held her. And her faith flourished, not in spite of, but because of the evil. I read her writings and am very glad she didn’t jump off.
One of the my first posts was about Corrie and her sister, Betsie, and God’s striking work in and through their lives. You can read it here.
