CHURCH DISAPPOINTMENT? HIS APPOINTMENT!: Why God’s Plan for You…Involved a Painful Church Experience by David Spoon
4th Excerpt from Section: “My Testimony”
The eldest one, a hippie who was definitely stuck in the sixties, couldn’t help noticing that I had a gun pressed against my head. He politely inquired as to what I was doing and I just as politely told him that Stuart and I had decided that life wasn’t worth living and we were going to blow our brains out. The three janitors took on an unspoken mission, no doubt directed by God (remember, God can, will, and does use whatever is available to accomplish His plans. He used both a virgin (Mary) and a prostitute (Rahab) to bring about the birth of Christ. He even used a jackass to rebuke a prophet when Balaam got a mouthful from his own donkey (Numbers 22:30). And I know that He has used unlikely people and places and situations to work things out in your life too!). Instead of freaking out about what Stuart and I were doing, they asked us if we would give them a few moments of our time before we blew our brains out so that they could show us some cool things about life. If we didn’t agree with them, then we could go back to our task at hand. But what was a few extra moments of time to us if we were going to commit suicide anyway? We agreed. Then they asked me if I would please put the gun down for a little while. No problem. I was actually pretty curious about what they wanted to share.
