PostSubject: Karl Steele story in online devotional book   Karl Steele story in online devotional book Icon_minitimeSun Jan 24, 2010 7:57 pm has an online devotional book available for free download. Section 2: The Christian Who Has Stumbled, chapter 2.05: Picking Up the Pieces, is a story about early chalk art pioneer Karl Steele.

"Summary of the chapter:
Has a tragedy or moral failure painted a terrible blemish across your life? God can take an ugly blemish and turn it into something beautiful.

Here is a portion:

"Carl Steele (known all over the world for his chalk drawings) picks up the chalk and starts drawing on an empty canvas. At first a small log cabin begins to take form. Gradually a beautiful lake appears in the background. One of Carl Steele’s trademarks was his ability to talk about God as he draws these beautiful pictures.

Everyone at Maranatha Bible Conference is enthralled by Carl Steele’s presentation. His work is mesmerizing. Suddenly, Carl Steele takes a piece of black chalk and puts a big black line through the picture (from the top all the way down to the bottom). If that wasn’t enough damage, he put a couple more black lines through the picture.

After destroying his beautiful picture, Carl Steele stops and faces the audience. Most people are horrified by what he has done. They can’t believe he ruined such a beautiful picture. Carl Steele’s pictures are valuable and many people are imagining how these black lines could be removed without ruining the picture."
