I’m not sure there’s any human out there who handles major interruptions in life without a little resistance. Life is full of interruptions, some more painful than others. I don’t know about you, but sometimes I just need to hear someone’s real, raw story of walking through major difficulties in life, in order to find fresh courage and perspective in my own.
This video below gives me the fresh perspective and courage I needed today. I had this video and mini blog post sitting in draft-form on my website for the past 2 years. I just re-discovered it sitting there today… and I re-watched the video and I have tears streaming down my face. I had to press publish and share it with all of you too. May it be an encouragement to you right where you are, in whatever storm you are walking through this very present day.
This is a short (5-min) but DEEPLY potent video from Bob Sorge sharing his raw story about when he was a senior pastor and worship leader and he suddenly suffered a life-changing vocal injury that left his voice very weak and painful to use. He can speak around an hour daily before the pain silences him.
The author of over twenty books, he travels the world strengthening others with the message God has given him — intimacy with Jesus and confidence in His promises. If you want to go deeper in the themes of this short film, Bob has written a book on the life of Job entitled, “Pain, Perplexity and Promotion.”
