I love her quote about looking over the ocean and only seeing a small part of it. There is so much more to come and it's impossible to see the complete picture. She says: THE BEST IS YET TO COME, when we see Jesus face-to-face.

We can read stories of lives gone before us. Their example shining just as bright today as it was written in a book. God promises continue throughout the Bible of lives touched by one decision to serve God. Your decision today is in a balance of with your complete heart, part of your heart or something you still don't understand the depth of in life. Daily living for God and daily giving thanks unto a God of promises yet to come.

Luke 18:35-43 New Living Translation
Jesus Heals a Blind Beggar
35 As Jesus approached Jericho, a blind beggar was sitting beside the road. 36 When he heard the noise of a crowd going past, he asked what was happening. 37 They told him that Jesus the Nazarene[a] was going by. 38 So he began shouting, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”
39 “Be quiet!” the people in front yelled at him.
But he only shouted louder, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”
40 When Jesus heard him, he stopped and ordered that the man be brought to him. As the man came near, Jesus asked him, 41 “What do you want me to do for you?”
“Lord,” he said, “I want to see!”
42 And Jesus said, “All right, receive your sight! Your faith has healed you.” 43 Instantly the man could see, and he followed Jesus, praising God. And all who saw it praised God, too.
BELIEVE ~ like the blind man
SHOUTED OUT, Have mercy on me!
Whatever you are facing today, you are not facing it alone. God is still the same over all these years and continues to heal people today. Miracles still happen in lives and change becomes important. Calling out loud upon the name of Jesus and let your request be known. Let us not forget to teach our kids, grandkids, neighbors kids and kids everywhere about Jesus and his amazing love for others. Let us not stop with you, but spread the word of hope.
Your story might still be unwritten, but it is written with God. He knows your coming in and going out of places. He can see all and knows your heart. Maybe you are searching today like the blind man and need the sight of God to be open to you. God can do that right now. You were brought to this page for purpose. I pray daily for the readers of my blog, your family and friends.
I have seen the importance of one day, one life and sharing hope daily. God is never to busy to listen and to be actively involved in your life. After all, he created you for this very day. A day of purpose and yet unknown things will happen. We can call out on the name of Jesus and he hears us.
Hold tight to the promise of God. Open your Bible and if you don't have one, buy one or ask a friend for one. Lots of people have more than one Bible in their home and can share one. Thank you for taking the time to read this, planting hope within your heart and traveling a road unknown but lead by God. Put that hope and trust in Him. God restores, completes and refreshes us as we lean to him.
