If he loses, he’s not lost

My husband left ahead of us this morning, meeting the football players and other coaches, in preparation of their third playoff game.  Before leaving, we held hands as a family and prayed.

While many coaches (Texas high school football, no less!) would pray for success and a hearty win, my husband exposed his heart.

Father God, if there is anyone on our way to or at the game who has never come to know You as his personal Lord and Savior, give me or Cristal the opportunity to share You with him.

The players, coaches and fans are hoping for another opportunity to advance closer to a State championship title.

My husband is anticipating that and much moreAn opportunity to advance the Kingdom of God.

Steady perseverance.  Unshakable faith.  Focused vision.  Determined purpose.

Even if the Pirates lose a football game, this coach is a winner.

    Dear Cristal,

    Ah, I am so blessed to have passed by here today. What focus! And above I read my dear friend, Susan’s line, “God’s people scattered…not of the world but in it, making a difference for Him” Ah, it makes me want to shout! God’s plan is so magnificent!

    Lots of Thanksgiving here,

    So how’d the Pirates do (in football and the Kingdom)?

  3. Wonderful post!!
    And tonight my family and I watched “Facing the Giants.”
