24 – Making a Splash

Annabel was a young swimmer who was always coming up short in races. She was often the last one to finish, and people started booing her and telling her to go back to swim school. Annabel was filled with shame and felt like she should give up her dream of swimming.

But something inside her told her not to give up. She prayed to God, “I know I’m not the best swimmer, but I love swimming and I want to keep trying. Please help me get better.”

Annabel started training harder than ever before. She swam every day, and she even started working with a personal trainer. She also started eating a healthier diet and getting enough sleep.

After a year of hard work, Annabel started to see results. She was swimming faster and faster, and she was no longer coming in last place. In fact, she was starting to move up the rankings.

The next year, Annabel competed in a major race. She started out in the middle of the pack, but she kept gaining ground. She eventually took the lead and won the race!

Annabel was so happy and proud of herself. She knew that she couldn’t have done it without God’s help. She told the reporters, “I prayed to God for help, and He worked on my behalf.”

Annabel’s story inspired many people. They realized that if they put their faith in God, He would help them achieve their goals, too.

“For since the world began, no ear has heard and no eye has seen a God like you, who works for those who wait for him!”

Isaiah 64:4
