Jeff Steinberg - "The Tiny Giant"

"Take my arms, I’ll touch you with my heart". For the third time Jeff Steinberg (known as "The Tiny Giant") touched the hearts and minds of the congregation and guests of Bethel. We had an evening of harmony, humour and praise but also Jeff’s special testimony which reminds us all to ignore any handicaps and persevere in discovering what God can do through each of us in a unique way.

The common theme to most of Jeff’s songs is not to dwell on the negative parts of our lives but to use prayer and worship in order to open ourselves to God’s plan. Only then will you be positive of the direction that He has decided for us. Our absolute trust in God’s perfect Will is essential. Jeff’s motto was "God is good - all the time. All the time, God is good".

Interspersed with his songs was Jeff’s life story which is a practical testimony of someone who has overcome intense disabilities by his absolute trust in God’s grace. His life is the embodiment of how we can develop God’s plan for us with unfailing faith. We saw pictures of how he was born and heard about the rejections in his life and how he has so many "ups and downs" in his physical and persona life. Some of the songs he sang reflected on the many different times in his life when he felt cast down but which was reinforced by how God had upheld him through the problems, and others which celebrated the wonderful love that God had poured on him and will also pour on to us if we open up and allow him. Jeff has been sharing his ministry for approximately 38 years throughout Churches, schools and prisons.

One of the hymns that Jeff requested us to sing was "Here is Love" sung at the Welsh Revival in 1903/04, which was sung with great Welsh crescendo.

Afterwards we all mingled informally in the hall at the back of the Church. Having read Jeff’s autobiography, in which he writes that "God paints him one colour at a time", I asked him "At this moment in time, what colour are you?" He replied, "Bright Red, because I believe that I am at the peak of what God wants me to do in the world". I asked him which picture he most resembled, he replied, "Whistler’s Mother, or a Picasso abstract!"

The evening was a joyful, musical and poignant evening, full of laughter, optimism, thoughtfulness and love.
