NOW FAITH, by Joel Osteen: Don’t stop dreaming. Keep the vision in front of you. A friend of mine was in an accident where both of his knees were crushed. The doctor told him he would be fortunate to walk, but he would certainly never run or play sports again. My friend was so disappointed after being in the hospital for over three months. The first thing he did when he was discharged was to join a health club. He took a step of faith. The fact is he couldn’t go to the club for over a year. He was too weak but he made up his mind he was not going to sit back and plan on staying in that wheelchair. He was making plans to be up walking again. That was more than five years ago. Today that young man can outrun me. He defied the odds. What happened? He started making plans to rise up out of that injury. Scripture: Matthew 6:34 NLT. Where is your FAITH.

To finish from last week: “The Gift Of Woman,” His heart is the center of his being; his lungs hold the breath of life. The rib cage will allow itself to be broken before it will allow damage to the heart. Support man as the rib cage supports the body. You were not taken from his feet, to be under him, nor were you taken from his head, to be above him. You were taken from his side, to stand by him and to be held close to his side. You are my perfect angel. You are my beautiful little girl. You have grown to be a splendid woman of excellence, and my eyes fill when I see the virtue in your heart. Your eyes - don’t change them. Your lips - how lovely when they part in prayer. Your nose - so perfect in form. Your hands - so gentle to touch. I’ve caressed your face in your deepest sleep; I’ve held your heart close to mine. Of all that lives and breathes, you are most like me. Adam walked with me in the cool of the day and yet he was lonely. He could not see me or touch me. He could only feel me. So everything I wanted Adam to share and experience with me, I fashioned in you: My reverence, my strength, my purity, my love, my protection and support. You are special because you are an extension of me. Man represents my image – woman my emotions. Together, you represent the totality of God. So man - treat woman well. Love her, respect her, for she is fragile. In hurting her, you hurt me. What you do to her, you do to me. In crushing her, you only damage your own heart, and the heart of her Father. Woman, support man. In humility, show him the power of emotion I have given you. In gentle quietness show your strength. In love, show that you are the rib that protects his inner self. If we follow this golden rule
