William Sangster began pastoring London’s Westminster Central Hall just as World War II broke out. His courageous ministry, powerful evangelism, and undying optimism helped keep London alive for Christ even in her darkest hours. After the war, Sangster was diagnosed with progressive muscular atrophy. His condition deteriorated until he was virtually paralyzed. But his attitude never faltered. He told others that he had made four rules for himself at the outset of his illness: “(1) I will never complain; (2) I will keep the home bright; (3) I will count my blessings; (4) I will try to turn it to gain.”


Things don’t always go as we’d wish, and we often don’t have all the information we desire. Such times aren’t just testing times; they are trusting times. The Bible tells us to walk by faith and not by sight, for without faith it is impossible to please Him. Those who come to God must believe that He is, and that He rewards those who diligently seek Him. (2 Corinthians 5:7; Hebrews 11:6)


Let’s adopt Sangster’s rules as our own. In times like these, it’s critical to have faith in God and to trust every word of His every promise.


There have been great gains already from my sickness. I live in the present. I am grateful for little things. I have more time—and use it—for prayer.

William Sangster

From This Point Forward
In 1991 a huge deposit of natural diamonds was found at a location in a remote corner of Canada's Northwest Territory, about 120 miles south of the Arctic Circle. By 1998, the EKATI mine was operational and it was estimated that just one pit would yield an astonishing number of diamonds, seven or eight million carats. In fact, from 1998 through 2009, 40 million carats were produced from the mine's six open pits.
