Aaron Burden photo Unsplash. One person—William McPherson—had a commitment to Scripture that was remarkable. He was a Scottish quarry worker who came to America in and settled outside of Denver. A hard worker, William eventually earned the spot of quarry superintendent. Though he had a number of admirable traits, he tended to be a bit impatient at times. One day his impatience got the best of him and he grabbed a live stick of dynamite. It exploded while he was hovered over it. Unfortunately, though, the accident left him with no hands, little feeling in his face, and no eyesight.
From that moment on, he was blind. Up to this point in his life he had lived for himself, reckless and free. Now, he was entirely dependent on others to help him get by. On several occasions before, others had tried to share Christ with him; now, due to his accident, he was in a place to listen. He gave his heart to the Lord in the coming months but was not satisfied by simply having someone read Scripture to him.
He longed for the ability to read it for himself. His injury was taxing to those around him, though— emotionally, physically, and financially. Eventually, his family found themselves unable to take care of him so he entered a home in Illinois for the aged and disabled.
Day in and day out he lived in darkness and solitude. He lived out the repetitive mornings, the same-song afternoons, and the identical evenings, armed with little more than his new- found hope in Christ.
It was desperately lonely, and he had little hope that anything about his life would change until he died. At the nearby school, lecturers would come and speak about various topics that the people in the home were facing. One day he learned of a young blind girl who had learned Braille and was able to read her Bible with her fingertips. Over time, this young girl lost the feeling in her own hands and was distraught. She brought the Bible to her lips one day to kiss it goodbye, and to her amazement, felt something.
She discovered that she could feel the raised letters with her lips! The story of this young girl had William pondering whether there was hope for him. He had lived in blackness for five years when God sent a blind girl named Anna Johnson to the home to work with some of the blind patients.
One day William asked Anna when she was about to go home for the day, if she could leave with him one of the little cards they had been practicing with. He kept trying to feel the little raised bumps with different parts of his body, when he realized he had not prayed and asked God for help.
So he earnestly begged God for help. The next time he raised the card to his lips, his tongue slipped out and brushed the paper. To his astonishment, he could feel the raised letters with his tongue! In the 65 years that followed, and after much bleeding and soreness, William McPherson read the entire Bible four times with his tongue. I am absolutely blown away by this man. His example leaves those of us who can see with no excuse. That would be a true tragedy. The year I heard this, I happened to be in the middle of reading the Bible in its entirety for the first time.
He would have four and I would have one. Though that was a feat by itself, something even more remarkable had happened: I had cultivated a passion for the Word of God. But this is all just a part of my journey. If you have never read the Bible through, I cannot stress enough how enriching of an experience it is. You get a full view of the work that God has done in His people and see how His plan fits together perfectly—and continues to this day. The Chicago Tribune published an article about William on April 27, In it, William commented that he believed that he was uplifted spiritually by being struck down physically.
Though his vision was dark, his awakened soul could see beauties of life and the fullness of God. Sightless, he could see more than many blessed with vision. The Lord crushed him so that He might use him. Your email address will not be published. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

Hi girls! I had the honor of guest posting on her blog about a month ago, and now she gets to write for mine. I was 15 when my dad and I took a walk through the neighborhood on a chilly morning. Nothing sounded more appealing to me than a cup of hot coffee and my Bible in front of me. The more I grow and watch the fallen world around me, the more I realize how vital a walk with God is.
