“If you look at the world, you’ll be distressed. If you look within, you’ll be depressed. But if you look at Christ, you’ll be at rest.” –Corrie ten Boom

Receive the courage and comfort of the Holy Spirit, and remind yourself of what Corrie ten Boom knew and lived: God is your hiding place.

“Day 3 - Becoming Childlike” – p. 24

God wants each of us to have the confidence that comes from knowing we are loved, valued and celebrated. The Lord paid a hefty price to be with us forever and to prove how outrageous His love is. When we understand how absolutely and extravagantly loved we are, we can pray with childlike faith, laugh with unreserved joy and be free to be ourselves.

In the midst of hurrying about and being concerned with so many details of daily living, we must always remember that God’s love can make us conquerors and set us free if we receive Him with open and trusting hearts.
