eSeeds: Turn Blights Into Blessings

Read Romans 8:28

Just before Richard Byrd was graduated from Annapolis, he broke a bone in his foot. It was discovered that his foot hadn’t healed while on his first trip as a naval officer, and he was retired from the Navy.

He appealed to Washington, applying for active duty as a flyer, and was accepted. He fought bravely in the war, flew to the North Pole, hopped the Atlantic and flew to the South Pole.

But his greatest achievement was turning his affliction into an advantage.

Refuse to be hampered by handicaps. By faith in God turn your setbacks into successes.

As you trust Him, He’ll make “all things work together for good.”

Prayer: We thank Thee, Father, that Thou art our everlasting Friend and our ever-present Help. Inspire us to trust Thee with our lives and loved ones. Help us not to be hindered by any obstacles we encounter: through Christ. Amen.
