See it.

To name a few

Live it.

When I hear that God was with someone, my imagination is stirred. God had His people but it's curious that He was "with" some of them more than others. Of all the those people, most went through hard times, tragedy and/or abuse but came through it used mightily by God. It's interesting that most of those God was with, were identified as a friend of God.

Every Monday night I have the privilege of preaching a message of hope to men in recovery who have gone through some sort of personal disaster. I begin with an explanation of the relationship we all were created to have, but most ignore and end up at odds with God. I end with an honest assessment of what could have been, but will likely be missed. That may not sound like a message of hope to you, but it is to the few God is with.

Pray it.

The fact You walked with someone is amazing, Lord, but to think You walk with me is astounding.
