Bowling for Dollars 
by Rick Boxx
March 10, 2010

According to Parade Magazine, Tom Smallwood lost his job, and had no prospects to support his family. As a young child he dreamed of being a pro bowler, but later pursued the guaranteed income world. But suddenly his guaranteed income was gone.

With no job prospects, and little to lose, he decided to chase his childhood dream. One year later, Tom Smallwood won the PBA World Championship and a $50,000 check. More than he ever earned in one year.

Solomon wrote in Ecclesiastes 2:24, "There is nothing better for a person than that he should eat and drink and find enjoyment in his toil. This also, I saw, is from the hand of God."

Sometimes guaranteed income prevents us from chasing our God given dreams. Do you have any dreams God desires you to uncover?
