An Update From Steve

Thanks to the many of you that have inquired about my condition since the cycling accident and have been praying for me.  I am deeply grateful!  The surgery was successful thanks to God’s gracious help and my gifted surgeon.  Dr. Thomas came in to pray with me before surgery, asking God for wisdom and guidance.  What a blessing and comfort!

Now six weeks later, my ribs are fully healed, my voice is strong and I have resumed our touring schedule.  Physical therapy is going well and will continue for several months until I have regained full use of my left arm.

In the unexpected down time I was reminded of some important things.  The outpouring of kindness from friends and family surprised me.  During a time of weakness, those around me showed tenderness that was overwhelming.  Weakness and dependency is not my default; I prefer to be strong and independent.  But the illusion of strength often keeps others away.  In reality I am in need of others all the time.

Taking time off from traveling, singing and speaking, forced me to remember my true identity.  I am not what I do!  My life and identity are in Christ.  It sounds simple but is such a liberating truth.

God provided in every way during the two-months I had to stop.  Even though the healing is slow, it is still miraculous!  I want everything instantly!  God’s timetable made me be still and remember that He sovereignly rules all things.  His provision came from unexpected places!  Our Father is tender, and His loving-kindness continues to give us sustaining joy.

I am thrilled to be back at the work God has given me, but more aware than ever of my frailty and the fact that life can change in an instant!  So, for health and strength to serve my King I am grateful.

Continued blessings to each of you,

    Hola amigo, que la gracia de nuestro Señor Jesucristo te acompañe siempre como lo a sido hasta hoy. Lo que Dios a hecho en esos dos meses es que te ha vivificado, mostrándote su amor y ternura y que tiene especial cuidado; Te ha quebrantado sí, pero te ha vivificado, te ha envuelto en su gloria y te ha hecho resplandecer como la aurora, así brillara tu luz a perpetuidad porque tus obras son en Dios.

    God bless you my friend, you have been a source of blessing and encouragement for 3 decades. Merry Christmas and best wishes to you and your family. Thank you for being an instrument of praise to our God.

    I’m so Glad to know you are much better and to know you have recognized the sovereignty of God in the middle of this situation. Many people were praying for your recovery and reading these words is the answer of our prayers. May God continue blessing your life, your family and your ministry.

    Hi Steve! I met you and your wife last August at the Nashville Airport en route to Florida. You were both so gracious! Thank you. I wish I could have told you how much your music has inspired me since my college years at Mount Vernon Nazarene College, when you sang with the Gaither Vocal Band! I speak Spanish and German, so your Spanish songs were a BIG blessing and help to maintain fluency while worshipping our Savior Jesus! I p.ray God uses you greatly in Germany! 3 John 2, My email is if you could write me an email. I just went to CUBA over Christmas on a mission trip! I highly recommend Cuba to you for a gospel concert! Our brothers/sisters in Christ are building God’s kingdom and winning souls

  • Eli

    Es cierto que hay que dar el reconocimiento debido a toda
    persona; sin embargo ahora entiendo que el objetivo de nosotros como hijos de
    Dios es dar a conocer a nuestro Señor Jesucristo. Te digo esto porque hace
    mucho tiempo que vengo escuchando tus canciones pero nunca supe tu nombre o si
    alguna vez lo escuche lo olvidé rápido pero lo que se quedaba en mí era el
    deseo de cantarle a Dios con esas hermosas letras que el Señor te inspiró (una
    y otra vez). Sé que continuarás siendo un siervo útil a nuestro Señor hasta el último
    aliento de tu vida. QDTB.

  • Jenni Bender

    I just sent you an email through your website and of course I did not know about your accident or your injuries! Praise the Lord for His mercy over you! He loves His children so well! It is so good to know that anything coming to us is from His hand, and comes only with the lessons we need and in His most gentle way. Will be praying for your continued healing and recovery. God bless you!
