What amazes me is that through it all, Corrie used each experience to draw closer to Christ. Instead of closing herself off and shutting herself up in pain -- time and time again she cried out for mercy and strength, continually making herself vulnerable and never ceasing to love the people God brought into her life. What a testimony and example.
A few of my favorite "Corrie quotes":
in resisting when suffering comes our way,
but in going through it resolutely with Him.
is too small to be made into a burden.
believes the unbelievable,
and receives the impossible.
