Good Morning Everyone,

Let's look at Proverbs 16:9

"A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps."

Richard Storrs and Gordon Hall were students at the same theological seminary. One Saturday near the end of the semester, Hall was preparing to go to Braintree, Massachusetts, to preach, hoping that he might receive an invitation to become their pastor. That afternoon as he was splitting some wood, his hat fell beneath the axe and was destroyed. He didn’t have the money to replace it and the weather was bitter cold, so he asked his friend to take the assignment. Storrs preached and was offered the job. He accepted it, and he remained the minister of that parish until his dying day—a period of more than half a century! 

Hall, although disappointed, sought other outlets for his talents. He went to India and became the first American missionary to Bombay. He was quite influential in the Indian missions movement. No one who believes in divine providence will for a moment doubt that God stationed Storrs at Braintree and Hall in India. By means of that ruined hat, the courses of two lives were changed. Nevertheless, in God’s divine will, the good news was proclaimed.

Bro. Paul
