Who is your coach?
The Super Bowl Game has just been played! The entire world was watching as they were routing for their favorite team excited, invigorated and eager to support the one team that they believed to be the winner. The coaches, each having their own strategy, their game plan and their method in getting the men revved up and prepared were front and center.
In the same way, God is your Life Coach. He wants you on his team because He believes in you �� knows your heart, your dreams as well as your shortcomings and fears. Yet, God, unlike the earthly Coaches, will not fire you or send you to another team if you don't perform correctly. He is your Coach for life! He said, if you continually trust me, have faith in me and believe in me, I will supply you with all of your needs. "Through me all good things are possible." As your Life Coach, God asks you to follow His ways, be in gratitude and appreciate all that you have. God wants you to believe in yourself and your talents because He believes in all the abilities that you possess.
We all have made our share of mistakes and had our problems but that doesn't mean that we can't still get back up and try again. Life is a class room of sorts, where we come to grow, learn, make mistakes and fall down; yet in all of our learning lessons, God has given us the strength to get back up, brush ourselves off and keep going. We are all called to run our race, learn and grow and then seek the wisdom of the Lord, who is eager to encourage and sustain us through all the difficulties that we face.
We are all seekers of something better. Make it a practice to seek encouragement and inspiration. The Book of Psalms were written to offer inspiration to all men. Beauty and strength can be found in them and I have learned over the years that those words have brought me great peace. Psalm 27:1-3 says: " The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell."
Psalm 40:1-3 says: I waited patiently for the LORD; And He inclined to me and heard my cry. He brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay, And He set my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm. "
