Athlete, Worship In Every Circumstance

"Naked I came from my mother's womb, and naked I will depart. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away, may the name of the Lord be praised." Job 1:21

Have you ever read the story of Job? It might be worth reading the first couple chapters to catch up with what happens to him. Job essentially loses everything. His workers, his livestock, and his children. And yet, in the moments following this enormous loss, Job maintains perspective and proclaims God should be praised in the midst of the storm he is going through.

Athlete, is your worship to God conditional on things going well in your life. Do you acknowledge him in the good moment and the bad?

Ben Watson (former tight end for the Patriots), just got cut from the team yesterday and tweeted this out:

"The God of victory is also God in failure. I gave my all, but it was not enough to earn a spot on the Patriots roster. I'm beyond disappointed but even more upset for my family who has supported me with all the love a husband and father could ask for. They are my heroes. Rom 8:28."

The God of victory is also God in failure.

Athlete, worship God today regardless of the circumstances in your life. How do you do this? It starts with having a heart overflowing with thankfulness. Make it a point today to be thankful. Challenge yourself to find 5 things every hour of the day to thank God for. Maybe it's something as simple as the beauty of a tree. Anything. Just be thankful. Express that thanks to God. If you do that, you will be worshipping today.
