By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going.

Hebrews 11:8-10 (NKJV)
LORD, by faith help me leave behind what is transitory and enter into a fruitful life.
Therefore from one man, and him as good as dead, were born as many as the stars of the sky in multitude--innumerable as the sand which is by the seashore. Hebrews 11:12 (NKJV)

Father, thank you for the hope you have given to me that I will join the saints who have gone before me.
