How to overcome life’s toughest challenges

June 14, 2012

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

Psalm 46:1

Dave Dravecky, the all-star baseball pitcher for the San Francisco Giants and a strong man of faith, felt a lump in his pitching arm one day. He had a tumor. So the doctors went in, took it out, and found it was cancerous. They ended up removing 50 percent of the muscle in his pitching arm. It seemed like his career was over.

But Dave rehabbed that arm and was able to come back to pitch again. The day he got his first win about a year later was an awesome moment, but Dave Dravecky gave God the glory. But when his turn in the rotation came to pitch the next time, he threw a fast ball and the bone in his arm snapped.

Dravecky reported that it felt like someone cutting his arm off with a hatchet. He collapsed to the ground and was carried off the field. And though he tried to rehabilitate the arm one more time, it was impossible. Eventually, Dave’s left arm and shoulder had to be amputated.

In his biography, Dravecky wrote these words: “Nobody ever promised that life would be fair. Everybody is going to have adversity. The only way to handle it is to take our eyes off our circumstance and put them on the Lord.”

No matter what challenges you face in life, focus on the Lord instead of your circumstances. When you do, He’s promised to give you peace that surpasses all understanding!

IN HARD TIMES, LOOK BEYOND YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES AND KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE LORD!

Learn how to defeat your doubts!

Dear Friend,

Many believers today find it easy to have faith when times are good. But when things get tough, they struggle with doubt as the foundations of what they believe are shaken.

To help you learn to defeat your doubts, I want to send you two powerful resources: the Why Believe, Part 2 CD series and a copy of the Share the Good News®New Testament.

These two resources will help you build the kind of faith that will weather the storms of life and conquer your doubts. And they’re my gifts to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint Ministries continue to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ.

I pray these resources will strengthen and encourage you for powerful daily living!

Jack Graham
