Today's Photograph . . . . God May Be Having You Go Through A Situation That Will Also Be A Benefit To Someone Else  (MQ) 
Bible Study Verse  
Psalm 20:1
May the Lord answer you when you are in distress; may the name of the God of Jacob protect you. (NIV)

God will answer all prayers. He will and He does. I have heard it said, don't pray to God for patience. For He will not give you patience, but give you experiences that will cause you to learn patience. I have been through that!  

Remember this, whatever you are going through now may not be all about you! Think about that. Hard to do in today's world when we are constantly told me first! But sit back and think for a second. God may be having you go through a situation that will also be a benefit to someone else. If God brings you to it, I'm not kidding He will bring you through it!
(Jim C)

Action Point
As I have gotten older, one of the benefits of that is learning from past mistakes. Bad things happen to good people. They do, it does, and you move on. Learn from that and you may very well be able to help someone else out because of that experience. Remember, it is not always about YOU.

Sportsmen's Tip of the Day
Sometimes one of the best memories from a fishing or hunting trip is not what you caught or killed. It's the stories, the laughs, and the memories made by the friends you were with. On a slow day think back to those, it will bring a smile to your face and warmth to your heart.
