For Christmas my brother gave me a very special Swiss Army knife that I treasure. During winter break from school I went to a reservoir to fish with a friend. At the end of the day, as I was using the scissors that are on my knife, the knife slipped out of my hands. It dropped into the water, which was thirteen to twenty feet deep and pitch-black.

When we reached a phone, I called my mom at home and told her what had happened. She said she would come down, and then she shared some truths, including this statement (Luke 1:37): "With God nothing shall be impossible." My mom also reminded me of the Bible story of how Elisha's servant lost the ax head in the water. Elisha threw a stick in the water and the ax head floated to the surface [see II Kings 6:5, 6]. I was also grateful for the love my best friend was showing me, because he was searching with his fishing pole for my knife.

We'd love to hear from you!
