Corrie ten Boom’s Encounters After The Hiding Place

Through her book Amazing Love, Holocaust survivor Corrie ten Boom shares incredible stories of her encounters with people following her release from the concentration camp.

Fort Washington, PA, January 5, 2018: If you’ve read Corrie ten Boom’s The Hiding Place, then you know Corrie’s story. She sacrificed her own safety to hide Jews in her home, was arrested, and endured the horrors of Nazi concentration camps. We saw through the pages of The Hiding Place Corrie’s faith and God’s miraculous work and grace; but what happened after? Amazing Love reveals this to us in short stories of Corrie’s encounters with people from all walks of life—inmates, a former soldier of Hitler, Hollywood stars, and many others. We see the amazing way in which Corrie shared her faith to the lost, which she did because of the love she had for the Lord and His people.

In Amazing Love, we learn that Corrie’s one fear, understandably, was returning to Germany. But what if God called her to do so? As difficult as it was, she learned that to experience God’s guidance in your life you must be obedient to Him. Through her stories, we learn about God’s work in Corrie’s life. She shares how she prayed when she felt inadequate, what she did when God called her to do the one thing she most dreaded, and how she forgave the seemingly impossible. All of this was accomplished only through Christ; and, the same God that performed those miracles in Corrie’s life continues to do so in us today.

In January 2018, a new edition of Corrie ten Boom’s Amazing Love will be released, which features a beautiful watercolor style cover, a modern typeface, and the same impactful testimonies of Corrie ten Boom.

About Corrie ten Boom: It is hard to overestimate the impact of the life of Corrie ten Boom. As a result of hiding Jews in her Holland home in the midst of World War II, Corrie ended up in a Nazi concentration camp where she continued to speak the love of Christ. A miraculous release gave Corrie the chance to begin an international ministry of writing and speaking, sharing Christ, and counseling the hurting as a self-titled “tramp for the Lord.” Corrie died in 1983, on her ninety-first birthday. Among Corrie’s most loved titles are The Hiding Place and Tramp for the Lord.

Breaking The Curse of Words

020117_BrokenCurse2_1700x500px

Words can either wound or heal…whether spoken by you, or spoken to you. James reminds us that there is incredible power in the tongue. “With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men who have been made in the likeness of God” (James 3:9).

Those words, penned by James, leave us with two questions:
1) Is your heart wounded and your life still directed by hurtful words spoken to or about you?
2) Have your words brought healing and encouragement to others, or have your words wounded and discouraged them?

The room where I usually write has an expansive view across a lightly forested area that hosts the confluence of two creeks. All kinds of wildlife abound in that area, some feathered, some furry, and some with human skin. Over the years, the local children, including my own grandchildren, loved to play down by the water beneath the trees. Because of this, there was often an odd assortment of shoes at our back entry, none of which fit us, but most of which are covered with mud that will have to be removed before they can be worn again.

It’s difficult to walk in muddy shoes. I know from experience that it can be tiring, down right aggravating, in fact. Muddy shoes weigh you down and make progress slow and cumbersome. Once, while walking in a field with my grandfather, he cautioned me to avoid a particularly low area because it held a great deal of moisture. I did not follow his encouragement, lost a shoe in the mud, and spent the rest of the day apologizing to him for having to hunt for it!

Are you weighed down with the accumulated disappointments, failures, and verbal clods collected from your own past? Rather than your life being a heady adventure, are you just slogging it out? Isn’t it time you removed the verbal debris that has accumulated on your soul? Isn’t it time you experienced what it means to run again, unhindered?

For many years I’ve experienced the joy of sharing how we can break the curse of words. By properly utilizing 1) the Word of God, 2) the Name of Jesus, and 3) the incredible power of the cross, you can break the curse of those words. And your own words can bring healing and encouragement to others.

Rejoice Evermore!

2 Timothy 1:12

 

This coming March, CLC is releasing a newly revised version of  The Broken CurseSome years ago when I first published this book, I had no idea how many people’s lives would be impacted by the simple truth in it. As the masthead above shows, The Broke Curse is available on this site at a discounted price. I hope you’ll use this resource for yourself and with others who need to break the curse of words.
