Never Too Late

64-year-old endurance swimmer Diana Nyad on Monday 2nd September 2013 became the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without a shark cage, willing her way to a Key West beach just before 2 p.m. ET., nearly 53 hours after jumping into the ocean in Havana for her fifth try in 35 years!

Nyad said she was 8 years old when she first dreamed about swimming across the Straits of Florida. It took Nyad 56 years to realize her dream, and it meant her trying 5 times- plus her determination not to let storm, jellyfish, nausea or utter fatigue stop her!

Let nothing stop you from pursuing that dream God has placed in your heart…for even if it tarries, it shall surely come! Nyad said to tell you “it’s never too late to chase your dream.”

 “Wait on the Lord;
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart;
Wait, I say, on the Lord!”  Psalm 27:14
