2 Corinthians 11:25 “Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep;”
2 Corinthians 11:26 “[In] journeyings often, [in] perils of waters, [in] perils of robbers, [in] perils by [mine own] countrymen, [in] perils by the heathen, [in] perils in the city, [in] perils in the wilderness, [in] perils in the sea, [in] perils among false brethren;”
Let me share this story I read about the Brooklyn Bridge construction with you, courtesy of Cite. Here is it:
In 1883, a creative engineer named John Roebling was inspired by an idea to build a spectacular bridge connecting New York with The Long Island. However, bridge building experts throughout the world thought that this was an impossible feat and told Roebling to forget the idea. It just could not be done. It was not practical. It had never been done before.
Roebling however couldn’t ignore the vision he had in mind of the bridge construction. He thought about it all the time, knowing full well deep within his heart that it could be done. He kept thinking and discussing the idea with several people who turned him down until he was able to convince and persuade his son to join him.
His son, Washington Roebling, was a young and upcoming engineer as at the time. He has just married and was looking to the future with so much hope and eagerness. The older Roebling sold the idea to the younger one and they both agreed that the bridge could be built.
The two set to work together for the first time, and they eventually developed concepts and working drawings on how the construction could be achieved. After that, they worked out how they could overcome much of the anticipated obstacles.
Eventually, after much planning and doggedness, they excitedly set about the massive project.
To be continued…
