    A wonderful quote - Corrie Ten Boom is one of my heroes! And her sister Betsy who died in a concentration camp, from giving shelter to Jewish refugees from the Nazis.

    And a wonderful idea having religious quotes.

    Blessings to you.

    "The fewer the words, the better the prayer." ~ Martin Luther

    Maybe he was saying. When we get to the point?

    "Never be afraid to trust an unknown future
    to a known God.

    ~ Corrie Ten Boom

    (Corrie lived out this reality as she and her sister, Betsy were in a concentration camp, and they saw miracle after miracle there) They are two of my heroes.

    By a "mistake" Corrie was let out of the concentration camp, and spent the rest of her life traveling and speaking of how God met them there. Her book, and a movie made from it are called 'The Hiding Place.'

    I pulled this from my promise portion box.

    I needed it tonight. Isn't it so neat how God knows just what we need?

    Be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest. Josh. 1:9

    I enjoyed reading these and would like to read more. I come to the board everyday, reading some of the quotes. I think this is a wonderful idea and would like to see more of these quotes from all of you. It's actually my FIRST step to the message board each day.

    Also, I want you ALL to know that my prayers are with each and everyone of you in your time of need for prayer.

    God Bless You All,
