Deep Calls to Deep...

"There is no pit so deep, that God's love is not deeper still" is a familiar quote by Corrie Ten Boom. Corrie and her family were put into a German concentration camp during World War II for hiding Jews.  Corrie is the only one that survived. What a horrible pit she experienced, but God's grace, love and strength carried her through it.  She traveled the world telling her testimony and is the author of many books.

Like Corrie, some of the pits we experience in this life are because of wrong done to us by others.  Some of the pits we face are because of our own wrong choices.  Regardless of who dug the pit we find ourselves in or how deep the pit is, God's love and grace is deeper still.

Today, however, I want to share about a third kind of pit we face in life. This is the pit we all have within ourselves. It's the deep place within us that longs to be fully loved, known, understood and accepted. (Join me for the rest of this post on Sunday, March 25th, at Woman to Woman Ministries where each Sunday I share a bit of Sunday Soul Food!)

  1. Elizabeth--love this! May every part of us be filled with the love of God!

    1. Yes! I love how the Amplified Bible in Ephesians says our entire being and personality are filled with God. That's what I long for!

  2. I read Corrie's story couple of years ago. What courage and such a sad story. Not sure I could ever fill those shoes in such times. Love the scripture. Happy Palm Sunday

    1. I hope your Palm Sunday was blessed. Blessings on you this Holy Week!

  3. Such great points - the various types of pits we find ourselves in. Thank you so much for sharing!

  4. This is excellent! My mom speaks of Corrie often. She finds great inspiration in Corrie's story - as should anyone going through a pit experience. Thank you for the reminder that God's love and grace is deeper than any pit we face.
