Corrie ten Boom

Words From Corrie

During this time of Pandemic, the opportunity to attend weekly worship services at church has been taken away. The doors are closed and parking lots empty. As the weeks roll by many are discovering different ways to worship other than in a group setting. The online options are abundant and ever-growing.

The choice of gathering with others has been removed. The option of being with Jesus has not. Some are hearing Jesus knocking now who were not even noticing before.

“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.”     – Revelation 3:20

I pray that you are among those who are now finding an increased interest in developing your own personal relationship with Jesus.


Consider these words from Corrie ten Boom today. Here is an excerpt from her daily devotional book “Each New Day”

We must not be too dependent on meetings.

You and I are what we are when we are alone.

Find your satisfaction in Jesus Christ.

Talk with Him, listen to Him, look at Him.

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.  – Philippians 4:13

Lord, make me independent of conditions. I thank You that You are the same yesterday, today, and forever.

The War Of Faith

I guess all the panic buying (hoarding) lately due to the Pandemic has caused me to ask myself if I’m guilty of keeping things to myself that should be shared. I don’t mean grocery store items but more important things with lasting value. I’m talking about things that can be shared without even diminishing my own supplies!

I was reading the latest post from one of my favorite bloggers when it dawned on me that I was being selfish if I didn’t share it with others.

So, that is how it came about that today I am introducing you to Bill Sweeney and his blog which is aptly titled –  Unshakable Hope

Christian Pandemic Response

What is the proper response to the Coronavirus?

Some things are common sense like protecting ourselves and others by following the suggested hygiene practices and social distancing.

But what is our response beyond these actions?


First of all, Christians should not be overcome by fear and panic.

_The Christian need not dread sickness, for he has nothing to lose, but everything to gain, by death._

It’s helpful to look to history for guidance.

Read this short excerpt from Martin Luther’s clear simple response to the bubonic plague in 1527.

We die at our posts. Christian doctors cannot abandon their hospitals, Christian governors cannot flee their districts, Christian pastors cannot abandon their congregations. The plague does not dissolve our duties: It turns them to crosses, on which we must be prepared to die.


Please read one more portion of Luther’s writing for a great balanced view. This is a handy guide to refer to during these days of the Coronavirus Pandemic.

“I shall ask God mercifully to protect us. Then I shall fumigate, help purify the air, administer medicine and take it. I shal

Please don’t let this unusual time come and go without squeezing the good from it. Ask God to open your eyes to what He wants you to see. Know that Jesus is constantly with you. You may be isolated from others but not from Him.

I hope you are finding more time to be with Jesus and read His Word. Have you been spending more time in prayer? Are you unsure of how to pray? Pray by simply expressing your honest thoughts and feelings. Ask questions and then expect God to answer you in some way. I have found a very simple prayer from the Old Testament to be perfect for this time.

We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on You.  – 2 Chronicles 20:12
