Some Christians are called to practice the presence of God in singleness. Corrie ten Boom was one such Christian. Though she was a sicky child, she came from a strong family that loved the Bible and cared about people.
During World War II, Corrie ten Boom’s life was miraculously spared during an airraid. The ten Boom family was involved in the Dutch underground and worked to save the lives of persecuted Jews.
Corrie ten Boom continued to practice the presence of God even after she was betrayed. Because of her underground activities, she was sent to prison and then to the notorious Ravensbruck concentration camp. Through the ministry of her sister Betsie she learned to give thanks in all things.
In Ravensbruck, Corrie ten Boom’s sister, Betsie, made a prophecy then died. When Corrie was released, Betsie’s prophecy came true. Corrie helped rehabilitate camp victims, and traveled the world preaching the gospel.
If the Christian life were only what many believers find it to be, I wouldn’t be the least bit interested in it.
