Surfing

Did you read Hebrews 11? Did you see how different all those faith heroes were from one another? But they all had something in common ... they believed God. And God was able to do extraordinary things through them.

Today I want to introduce you to someone you may have heard about in the news. Her name is Bethany Hamilton. She’s a 14-year-old competitive surfer, whose arm was bitten off by a shark. This young lady proclaimed her faith in Jesus from the beginning of her ordeal. Exercising incredible faith for one so young, she has never stopped trusting God. And, holding onto Him, she is reaching many others with a message of life and hope. Visit her website and learn more of the wonderful ways God is redeeming a tragic event and get acquainted with a real faith hero of the 21st century.
Because you are precious in my eyes, and honored, and I love you, I give men in return for you, peoples in exchange for your life.” Isaiah 43:4
