See It!

Hebrews 11:1  “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.”

I usually do it every time I step onto a tee box.  After taking a couple of practice swings, I look down the fairway and visualize the ball soaring through the sky as it heads to the perfect spot to land.  This vision gives me a guide in my mind to aim for and confidence sometimes to hit a shot that is far above my skill level!

God . . . Used it for Good

Genesis 50:20  “You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.” 

Dave Stone told a story about a soldier during the Vietnam War who got a letter from his girlfriend saying that she was breaking up with him.   To make a painful situation worse, she asked, “Will you please return my favorite picture of myself --- I need to use it for my engagement picture in the local newspaper.”

Provided

Genesis 22:14 “So Abraham called that place The Lord will Provide. And to this day it is said, “On the mountain of the Lord it will be provided.”
 
Growing up I always had an example of a father that provided. My dad is a business owner who started his company when I was a teenager. I watched him work hard, make good choices and provide for his family. In our family we had everything we needed and almost everything we wanted.
