The Best of the Portals of Prayer

Read: 2nd Corinthians 1:1-7 / Psalm 92

“If we are afflicted, it is for your comfort and salvation.”
2nd Corinthians 1:6

Triumph over Tragedy

When the brilliant William Moon of England was at the height of his mental powers, his future powers, his future looked promising. Then tragedy struck – he became blind. At first he exclaimed, “what are my abilities worth now that I am shut up here in my room?” However, he slowly began to realize that God had a higher purpose in allowing him to be afflicted. Because his eyes were sightless, he began to develop a unique system of the alphabet to assign others with a similar condition. It soon was adapted to fit the languages of many countries. More than 4 million blind people we now enabled to read the Bible.
Even though Louis Braille, came up with a more successful way to type out, and produce reading materials for the blind, it was moon’s pioneering work that made this all possible. Out of tragedy, came great comfort for millions! Every child of God, regardless of trial or struggle, similarly can be used to bless others. May Christ carry us over our next struggle and tragedy.

Lord, help us, even in our affliction, to see how others may benefit and how it may also be for our eternal comfort and salvation. Amen.
