1 Corinthians 10:13
"No trial has come to you but what is human. God is faithful and will not let you be tried beyond your strength; but with the trial he will also provide a way out, so that you may be able to bear it."
This Sunday I was at church and started to feel convicted by the Holy Spirit. To be completely honest, about one time every week I have an anxiety attack that lasts for a about an hour or two. Random things will set me off but it usually comes down to all these things running through my head at once: my time constraints to preform, will I be ready for my proday?, what if I run slow?, will I get invited to a camp?, what if I get cut from mini-camp (that would be embarrassing), this window of opportunity to play football is only getting smaller I only have one shot at this, I don’t want to let everyone down, ect..… the list goes on. I felt convicted and ashamed because I had lost faith that everything I’m going through is for a reason and that I have a divine plan in life whether that’s in football or without football; I have to accept the fact that I am NOT in control which is humbling.
I vowed on Sunday that I would:a.) put God first in my ambition
b.) submit that I am not in control; stop worrying
c.) be grateful for the opportunity I have
d.) put myself in the best opportunity to succeed
What happens from there happens and I will be ok with it. I know that sounds like the obvious plan to start with but I’ll tell you from first-hand experience that it’s much easier said than done.
