one of my favorite quotes
The first time I heard these words, I stopped in my tracks. I paused the movie. I thought of the many times that I was fearful and wanted to pull back. I thought of the times in softball when my team needed me to get a hit and I was nervous. I thought of all the challenges in church and how easy it is sometimes to curl up into a ball and go and hide.
For years I have been saying to myself. Winners always want the ball when the game is on the line. Sometimes in the midst of pain and struggle, you have to get up and get after a thing. You can always quit another time, but not today. The world is changed by those who step up, get in the game and give life their very best.
The game may be on the line. Winners want the ball, they want a chance. Step up. Get in the game. You will be glad that you did.
It's a beautiful day in God's world, be sure to see the good.
