God used Joe to prove it’s never about us, our abilities or anything we have to offer. When God decides to do something, He provides the vessel. He chooses the time and He alone controls the results. Many might have seen Joe as a “broken vessel,” but Joe wasn’t broken at all. He was molded by God to be the perfect tool for the job he wanted done.
Joe was an integral part of our family and his life played a major role in God’s shaping each of us. If you ever met Joe you saw a life that shined God’s light clearly. Joel Allen Froese, my brother, God’s tool.
