I believe in the sun even when it does not shine

A few years ago I visited the site of the Dachau Concentration Camp – a place that was the scene of so much evil. There are now three chapels there, one Jewish, one Catholic and one Protestant – each of them is a memorial to the spirit of faith that was able to survive that hellish place. That spirit was powerfully expressed in some words found scratched on the wall of such a camp: ‘I believe in the sun even when it does not shine. I believe in love even when it is not expressed. And I believe in God even when He is silent.’
Corrie Ten Boom, the only one of her family who survived the death camps and whose life was celebrated the movie ‘The Hiding Place’, says that the last thing her sister Betsie said to her before she died was: ‘Remember, there is no pit so deep that God is not deeper.’
Faith is the ultimate victory.
