Bethany Hamilton

In Hawaii, there is a girl named Bethany Hamilton. Some may know her as the Soul Surfer. Bethany lost her arm in a shark attack so everyone thought she was going to stop surfing-- but she didn't. She knew that God has a plan for her.
Bethany has her own book. Here is a bit from it--

"God has a plan!!
I didn't plan on losing my left arm in a shark attack on October 31,2003. I didn't plan on having to learn to surf all over again, and I certainly didn't plan on becoming famous. I never thought I'd wright a book, or throw out the first pitch at a New York Yankees baseball game, or talk to people all over the world who have lost limbs in wars and accidents.
One thing I did plan on doing was whatever God wanted me to do. I wanted my plan to be His plan, no matter what."

From Bethany's book called Soul Surfer devotions.

Knowing God

This is my third year homeschooling and it is amazing how much closer I have gotten to God. It has changed my life completely.
James 4:8 says.....
Come near to God and he will be near to you.
This Thanksgiving I have been trying to focus on everything I am thankful for. Not just toys, friends, but also shelter, food, water, and God.
1 Chronicles 22:19 says.....
Now devote your heart and soul to seeking the Lord your God.     I have been trying to devote myself ever since I saw this verse. Do not merely listen to the word do what it says. as James 1:22 states.

The Plan

Hi I'm Turtle! I made this blog called The Plan because God has a plan for you. Not a plan- The Plan. This blog is going to have great Bible verses and advice.Here is a Bible verse to kick us off.......

Hebrews 11:1
Faith is being sure of what we hope for. It is being certain of what we do not see.
