Many thanks to Louie Giglio for this photo. It comes from his book: "The comeback." Many stories in this book are about people successfully overcoming obstacles as part of their comeback process. 
A person goes from hurting to healed, from addicted to free, from sorrow to joy, from loss to gain.

9. En toe hulle geland het, sien hulle 'n koolvuur op die grond, en vis daarop lê, en brood. 
10. Jesus sê vir hulle: "Bring van die visse wat julle nou gevang het,"
11. Simon Petrus het in die skuit geklim, en die net op die land getrek, vol groot visse, honderd-drie-en-vyftig in getal. En alhoewel daar so baie was, het die net nie geskeur nie. 
12. En Jesus sê vir hulle: "Kom eet!"
En niemand van die dissipels het dit gewaag om Hom te vra: 'Wie is U?'
nie, omdat hulle wis dat dit die Here was. 
13. En Jesus het gekom en die brood geneem en aan hulle gegee, so ook die vis. 
14. Dit was al die derde keer dat Jesus aan sy dissipels verskyn het, nadat Hy opgestaan het uit die dode.  

(Ek vertrou die Heilige Gees van God om die korrekte Skriflesing aan my deur te gee elke dag, volgens u behoeftes en verwagtinge. 
Aan Hom kom toe alle lof, eer, heerlikheid, majesteit, lofprysing, aanbidding en danksegging, van nou af tot in ewigheid. 
I am trusting the Holy Spirit of God to reveal the appropriate portion of Scripture every day, according to your needs and ecpectations. 
To Him be all glory, honour, majesty, praise, worship and thanksgiving, from now and forever more).
