Life is a Football Game

Are you going through a tough stretch? Does it seem life is one trial after another? Do you frequently hear yourself saying "What now?"

The truth of the matter is that it is "Always something". As Rick Warren said once "We're either going through a trial, just getting out of a trial, or getting ready to go into a trial."

So why are we so upset and distraught when life pitches us one foul ball after another? Or we keep getting intercepted in our goals? Because life is a game.

Think about it. We all have goals right? Some of us want a new job, others want to be married, to be thinner, or to achieve some status or position at work. Just like football, we use strategies to reach our goals.

But sometimes our strategies fail. Just like in football. We get intercepted, distracted, miss the catch or worse, drop the ball! The good news is that in life, just as in football, there's always another season, another chance to get in the game, make the play and score that touchdown.

So, when life starts to distract you and keep you on the sidelines, don't despair. Remember who is the Head Coach and who is rooting for you on the sidelines and from the box seats. My life verse for this year is Romans 8:31, "For if God is for us, who can stand against us?" Today, I encourage you if you are down and out, to get back in the game. There's still time to make that play and score that goal!

Until next time, keep looking up!
