Now dependent on many to help with the most basic of needs, Steve shares how dependency in missions is hindering our ability to take the Gospel to the whole world. It’s a reminder of how embracing our weakness enables God’s strength to shine through. The Thorn by Martha Snell Nicholson “I stood a mendicant of God before His royal throne And begged him for one priceless gift, which I could call my own. I took the gift from out His hand, but as I would depart I cried, "But Lord this is a thorn and it has pierced my heart. This is a strange, a hurtful gift, which Thou hast given me." He said, "My child, I give good gifts and gave My best to thee." I took it home and though at first the cruel thorn hurt sore, As long years passed I learned at last to love it more and more. I learned He never gives a thorn without this added grace, He takes the thorn to pin aside the veil which hides His face.”
