Seek and you will find

The important thing after setting a goal is taking action. Napoleon Hill

Perseverance is a great element of success.  If you only knock long enough and loud enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up somebody.  Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.
Matthew 7:7-8

Just imagine that I had only thought of giving my 12 teddy bears to the hospital ER last year and had not taken action; so many lives would not have been touched;  so many people would not have been comforted; so many times over God would not have been given the glory He so richly deserves.
I did take action and the result today is that with the remaining teddies in the hospital right this moment, when they have been given to children in need, the total given since July 22, 2011 will be 485 teddies.  It boggles my mind at how greatly God multiplied those 12 teddies for His purpose!!
The teddies have not taken over my life.  Yes, it has taken perseverance to continue to seek them out, to clean them, to copy the poems and stuff envelopes, to deliver them to the hospital and I have loved every moment of it all!!!!
These two Bible verses speak volumes to me.  It's just that easy!  Simply believe that someone willing is on the other side of the door upon which you knock to aid you in your endeavor.
Have a wonderful day in the Lord! Love, Nan
