Prayer
Father, I come to worship you in my giving.
I acknowledge your blessing IN my life
And your care OF my life.
This is my offering. These are my tithes.
I give today because I trust you completely
With all of my life.
May you supply all my needs
In the days that are ahead.
And may you use my gift to build your Kingdom
And supply the needs of your church.
Amen.
Florence Chadwick gave up swimming from Catalina Island to the California shore because the fog rolled in. Have you ever had a situation when the "fog" rolled in on you? Where you became discouraged, filled with doubt, fear, and anxiety and decided to give up?
Often when the fog rolls in, we develop a victim mentality where we whine, complain, blame, and criticize. This often leads to anger. God doesn’t want us or his disciples to be victims; He wants us to have victory.
Jesus was constantly reassuring the disciples about His IDENTITY. John has 7 I am statements where Jesus declares who He is:
• “I am the bread of life.” (John 6:35)
• “I am the light of the world.” (John 8:12)
• “I am the door.” (John 10:9)
• “I am the good shepherd."(John 10:10)
• “I am the resurrection and the life.” (John 11:25)
• “I am the Way, I am the Truth, and I am the Life.” (John 14:6)
• “I am the true vine.” (John 15:1)
John also helps us believe in Jesus by recording seven
signs or miracles to give us faith and believe:
• Changing water into wine at the wedding at Cana (John 2:1-11) Reminds us he cares about little things.
• Healing the royal official’s son (John 4:46-54) Power over distance.
• Healing the man paralyzed for 38 years the pool of Bethesda in Jerusalem (John 5:1-15) Power over time.
• Feeding the 5,000 (John 6:5-14) Cares for daily needs.
• Walking on water (John 6:16-21) Power over physical world.
• Healing the man born blind (John 9:1-7) Power over the body.
• Raising Lazarus from the dead (John 11:1-45) Power over life & death.

Remember Florence Chadwick, the American swimmer? Two months later, she made another attempt to swim from Catalina Island to the California coast. And again the fog was heavy, and again she couldn’t see the coastline. But this time she finished the swim. How? This time when the fog rolled in she said that she kept a mental image of the shoreline in her mind and she focused on that. She kept perspective. She refused to give up.

So should you!
