The infamous “Welcome to Miami Beach” sign. One of the first things you see when approaching the oasis. But it wasn’t always a beautiful island getaway. In 1870, Henry and Charles Lum, New Jersey residents, thought it would be a great idea to buy a sandbar at 25¢ an acre to convert it into a coconut farm.
That worked horribly. 👎🏼 Eventually, John Collins bought the area and used it to grow crops.
This worked a lot better. 👍🏼 On March 26,1915, 33 registered voters of Miami Beach officially incorporated a new city.
Miami Beach has a lot of history and culture: from share cropping to mob ties, to cocaine cowboys and artistic restoration. Miami Beach is one of the world’s most noted man-made tourist destinations.

Uncertainties: Why is it so many of us are uncomfortable with uncertainties? Is it because we believe if we know all the answers to every aspect of lives, we will feel safer?
Safe is not going to bring long-lasting fulfillment. Security is for those who don’t want to maximize their talents.
Get comfortable not knowing the future, and being okay where life takes you, as long as you don’t give up. God wants you uncomfortable...is the only place he can make miracles happen. You won’t know what He’s capable of doing until you surrender and trust the process.
All you need to do this morning is to stay focused on what you want to achieve and work on it. Let God handle the details. Don’t be concerned with “when or how” is going to happen- just do what you can with what you have today.
