The story of the mortal man called Mr. Charles Sparrow, one of the very wealthy men of Chicago and a born again child of God, lost all he had.
He decided to send his family to England to rest and recuperate from the devastating shock of loss! on high seas however, like the mighty titanic, a terrible storm struck the ship and it broke into pieces.
His wife and the children hung to little floating pieces of the ship parts for hours. but as the storm raged on stronger and before emergency help came , she watched each child slip off those planks to the depths of the deep, black ocean.
Finally she was rescued alive and taken to shore where she sent her husband a telegram immediately with these two words: “Saved Alone.”
Mr. Sparrow on receiving the news did not develop hypertension, die, or curse God! instead, he took time off to pray and in the process of his waiting on God in quietness, the words of the award winning Old inspirational song, which has blessed millions: “IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL” were revealed to him. He wrote the great song in distress!
—— “some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns: I am thankful that thorns have roses.” Mr Charles sparrow who died childless discovered roses in his thorns. it is your turn now to discover the roses in your thorns! Refuse to bleed! choose to bubble! rejoice! rejoice! rejoice!
