I’ve shared a couple of excerpts of those who lived the real-life story of “Through the Gates of Splendor.” I came across this message by Steve Saint while searching for missionary stories to share. I knew I would share this one. If you aren’t aware of it, Steve suffered a serious injury a few years ago and nearly died. He was partially paralyzed and has gone through a very difficult rehabilitation.
This message he stands to share. The title is probably self-explanatory because we all have chapters in our lives that we don’t like…maybe the chapter we’re living right now. Steve shares from the heart about such a chapter of his life and that it’s God’s promise that He will write the chapters and that at the end of the book…our life’s book…God has promised that everything He wrote in our story will make sense as it will fit perfectly within His purpose, His plan…His story.
I hope you’ll carve out some time and listen to this message. He gives a visual illustration that you won’t forget. I stayed up late just so I could finish listening. It was worth the sleep payment. May you be blessed by this too.
