"He who fears the LORD has a secure fortress, and for his children it will be a refuge." Proverbs 14:26
"As difficult as it is, we must look beyond our circumstances tot he One who enters into those circumstances with us. We must preach the truth of the Gospel to ourselves. The truth that God is good, that He is in control, and that He has our best interests in mind. And when we are in our darkest days, we must, must, must look to the cross and find in it God's truest expression of love for us. When we see the cross, we can have confidence that God cares for us, no matter what our circumstances indicate. Do not allow circumstance to tell you about God. Let God tell you what to think of your circumstance."He also offers a very helpful section title "How to Keep Your Mind Around the Blind" where he shares some "Do's" and "Don'ts" when engaging the blind or other disabled persons. Travis's parents also offer their personal thoughts on the best ways to parent and be the caregiver of children with disabilities. To complete the book, Travis offers readers his study of Acts 26:12-23 "Living Out God's Purpose", which could easily be used as a personal study tool or shared with a small group study.
"When Christ invades our lives, however, nothing is ever the same again. From that moment forward we have meaning and value for the journey ahead. We have something that satisfies and fulfills. We have something that is both exciting and terrifying. We have the brilliant light of this knowledge: No matter how dark our circumstances grow, Christ is with us, guiding us and directing us with His purpose in mind. He is our sight. He is our Light. May you walk in the light that never goes dark."*I was given a complimentary copy of the book as a participant in the tour sponsored by Glass Road - a division of BelieversPress.
