when a train goes through a tunnel


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.

About Jill

I'm a wife, mom to three beautiful children, and work as children's ministry director at Redeemer PCA in Athens, GA, a place our family treasures as our church home. It's been thirty years since the Lord saved me, and to this day I'm astounded at His steadfast love shed upon unfaithful me. My hope would be that I might speak and write in ways God would use to soften hearts toward Him, that we would together be enamored by the glorious beauty of Jesus and awakened to His love unimagined. Thanks so much for reading!
