Throughout Corrie teaches us what it is to be very sensitive to God's Holy Spirit in our lives. Sensitive so that when God tells us to make changes in our life we won't wait or make excuses but just be obedient. God can then use you and me like He did Corrie - a tramp for the Lord.
Since this book is a collection of short anecdotes, it's not necessary to read it straight through.
I especially enjoyed the chapter entitled "God's Word, the Sword - God's Perfect Weapon". You will be inspired by "One Finger for His Glory" which describes an old woman, crippled with MS, who used one finger to type out translations of the books of Billy Graham, Corrie, and Watchman Nee into her own Russian language.
Please check out my review of "Anywhere He Leads Me", a book of devotionals by Corrie Ten Boom, compiled by Judith Couchman. I highly recommend this book and this book is what got me interested in reading "The Hiding Place".
God bless you!
I think a better way to have read it is daily, like a devotional. The chapters are short, 6 pages tops, and they take one scripture as the theme. Corrie would go into how that scripture was driven home to her, through certain circumstances.
The only suggestion I would give is to first read The Hiding Place, you will have a better understand of what this woman went through, and how she was used by God. This book goes into life after the concentration camps, so it is good to have a knowledge of what her life was like before.
TRAMP FOR THE LORD starts off right where THE HIDING PLACE ends, with Corrie ten Boom returning to Holland, and searching out her new mission in post-prison life. She turns to globe-trotting the world and spreading her story and the love of Jesus with everyone she meets. The stories she tells in this book in 35 little chapters adds up to an amazing adventure that will leave you wanting more. Corrie spent almost 20 years traveling the world, and she has a lot of amazing stories and insights in life to share.
So, if you're looking for some encouragement, a great read, or something to work through devotionally, TRAMP FOR THE LORD is a great book. (Also, the ending chapter sets up IN MY FATHER'S HOUSE perfectly. That book details the events of Corrie's life leading up to THE HIDING PLACE. Check it out as well!)
There are two things about this book that really resonate with me. First is the fact that Corrie travelled the world sharing God's message, not as a young woman, but as a woman in her 50's--she continued until she was in her 80's. Amazing! Her life's work began when most of us are thinking of retirement. I am encouraged and inspired about what lies ahead in my own future. We are never too old to accomplish our dreams and the plan that our Heavenly Father has for us in our lives.
The second thing that resonates with me is Corrie Ten Boom's character and personality. Tramp for the Lord describes a remarkable woman and the lives she touched through her travels. Although she was known and loved by thousands of people around the world who listened to her message, she remained humble and never took credit for her work--she gave the credit to God. Her popularity did not go to her head; she was very down-to-earth and never hesitated to admit her weaknesses and to ask forgiveness of others. She never put herself on a pedestal or sought fame and glory for herself.Read more ›
