Corrie ten Boom was a Christian who lived in Holland during the Nazi occupation. She and her family helped hide Jews in their home and were involved in a movement that saved many people. Her story is told in “The Hiding Place”, which she authored.
In this book she talks about how a small baby in her neighborhood had died. This passage shows how her father comforted his upset daughter:
I burst into tears, “I need you!” I sobbed. “You can’t die! You can’t!” “Corrie,” he began gently. “When you and I go to Amsterdam, when do I give you your ticket?” “Why, just before we get on the train.” “Exactly. And our wise Father in heaven knows when we’re going to need things, too. Don’t run out ahead of him, Corrie. When the time comes that some of us will have to die, you will look into your heart and find the strength you need – just in time.”
