Corrie Ten Boom …images-2

Those of us who know of her story feel the weight of our own struggles melt away, in the shadow of what she suffered.

Those of us who know of her story and who hold onto bitterness for the things that others have done to us, feel guilt for not forgiving knowing what she could forgive the awful atrocities she had endured … even the loss of her dear sister, Betsy.

Corrie Ten Boom …

  • her family worked in the Netherlands to save many Jews running and hiding from the Nazi SS
  • someone squealed on their good work
  • Corrie and her sister Betsie were sent to Ravensbruck concentration camp
  • both sisters suffered terrible atrocities in the camp
  • Betsie died
  • Corrie lived
  • Corrie came face to face with one of the guards, many years later
  • she had to choose whether or not to forgive

Please take a moment to hear, in the words of Corrie Ten Boom, about forgiveness.

… but He can!
