“The Storm Is Passing Over” Video

by Rev. Burton Barr Jr.


St. Louis, MO – At a time when people are losing everything and feeling hopeless, Rev. Burton Barr Jr. reminds us with his second book, “Amazing Grace,” that the storm is indeed passing over. After being held down by a mob, while they injected heroin-filled needles into the veins of a young minister, of age 21; Rev. Burton Barr Jr., was not aware of the 20 year struggle that awaited him. Rev. Barr gives 22 lessons and examples of how God restored him through faith and prayer, and allowed him to beat every addiction, put his criminal past behind him, and overcome all hopelessness. "God tends to use someone with issues, so that they can become a Billboard for how good God is." - Rev. Burton Barr Jr.

"Amazing Grace: The Storm Is Passing Over" Description

One stormy Chicago winter, while walking with my father, a sudden snowstorm arose. Having left my gloves at home—thinking it wasn’t cold enough to wear them—I had to put my hands in my pockets. My father said, "Son, if it's cold enough for you to put your hands in your pockets, it’s cold enough for you to wear your gloves." Dad took his gloves off and handed them to me. We made it home safely through the storm. We all go through difficult times in our lives. However, we don't realize how much trouble we’re in until the rough times turn into a storm. God has already given us everything we need to survive any storm—His Word. Instead of reading it and applying it to our lives, we leave it at home, closed up, sitting on the dresser. Amazing Grace tells us that God will forgive us no matter what we've done and that we can be used to fulfill His Will.
