Seeing the Invisible by Joe Barnett

He persevered because he saw him who is invisible.
Hebrews 11:27

Seldom can you describe a person in two words, but Moses met that measure: “He persevered.”

Moses faced the threats of Pharaoh, the biggest bully of the era; the recurrent rebellion of the Israelites; the provoking protests of his leadership by his sister and brother; the fearful faithlessness of ten of the twelve spies he sent to scout out Canaan. He met each challenge with remarkable perseverance.

What was the source of his endurance? Just this: he confronted each clash focused on the invisible God, rather than on the visible aggravation.

Imitate Moses. When evil seems to be winning, when people of big position act contemptibly small, when troubles come nonstop, persevere in faith, confident in the invisible God, being “certain of what you do not see” (Hebrews 11:1).

Fix your eyes on the ultimate, not the immediate.

One of Fifty!
Teresa Fleury began her teaching career in Galveston in 1990 teaching kindergarten. After teaching in various elementary grade levels for 17 years, she was encouraged to get her master’s degree in library science. Teresa then began encouraging hundreds of students to discover the magic of reading.                                                                              Over her career, Teresa has been nominated as a top 50 teacher five times; 3 of them being as a librarian.
Side note: only librarian honored with this nomination.

In 1977, the Galveston Academic Excellence Club created the Top 50 Awards to recognize outstanding students, as well as outstanding teachers.

We at Broadway are so proud to have Teresa receive this honor. Be sure to congratulate her.
