I AM AN 80 YEAR OLD MALE, BORN AGAIN, CHRISTIAN WITH A LOVE FOR JESUS. I DO NOT GET OUT MUCH ANYMORE BUT FIND THAT TELLING PEOPLE ABOUT THE LOVE JESUS HAS FOR THEM IS NOT ONLY WHAT WE ARE SUPPOSED TO DO BUT SOMETHING THAT THE WORLD NEEDS.

"WE MUST USE OUR FAITH" BY DAVID MCMILLEN
WE MUST USE OUR FAITH
I LOVE READING HEBREWS 11. IT IS CALLED THE FAITH CHAPTER FOR A REASON. I HAVE COPIED 1-11 BELOW SO YOU WOULDN'T HAVE TO LOOK UP THE VERSES.
1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
2 For by it the elders obtained a good report.
3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
4 By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.
5 By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.
6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
7 By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.
8-11 By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God. Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.
DON'T GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAMS. IF THEY LINE UP WITH GOD'S WORD, HOLD FAST IN FAITH AND YOU WILL SEE THEM. FAITH HAS SUBSTANCE FOR YOUR DREAMS AND IS ALSO THE REALITY OF THEM. PSALM 37:4 SAYS "Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart." GOD LOVES YOU AND ALWAYS WANTS THE BEST FOR YOU. JUST STAND IN FAITH AND HE WILL SEE THAT YOU GET THOSE DESIRES.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
