When I first became a Christian over 40 years ago, Corrie ten Boom's story The Hiding Place made me realize how much God loved us and what it means to be willing to lose our lives for His sake. I often listened to her on the radio and missed her insights into faith and living for Jesus. In God is my Hiding Place, Corrie's words again bring comfort and inspiration to a weary soul.
I found many nuggets of wisdom to ponder:
"Worry is carrying tomorrow’s load with today’s strength—carrying two days at once. It is moving into tomorrow ahead of time. Worrying does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows— it empties today of its strength."
"We must not worry about what we do not understand in the Bible. Instead, we should be concerned about what we do understand but do not live by."
"When the worst happens in the life of a child of God, the best remains and the very best is yet to be."
With prayer at the end of each day, this 40-Day Devotional is so inspiring that I ordered my own hardcover copy of it so that I can read it again and again. I highly recommend it!
I received a review copy from Bethany House and NetGalley for my honest review.
