A lifetime lesson emerged from this experience: Don’t give up, always keep trying...you can do it! Like the tulip making its way through the frozen snow and blooming amidst the wet and cold, I can be IN IT and come THROUGH IT!
The cold reality of team or competition losses seem so very harsh. But these experiences can bring out the best in both players and coaches. It can motivate change, promote camaraderie and create resilience. These attributes emerge because they have been IN IT and THROUGH IT... like tulips in the snow.
Acts 11 tells us about what happened to the church after Christ-follower Steven was stoned to death for his faith – a terribly defeating and fear-producing event. But the church didn’t turn away, rather they threw themselves into the spread of the gospel, got behind it, and were enthusiastically confident that...
“God was behind and in it all.” (See Acts 11:22-24 The Message)
My prayer today is to hear His voice both IN IT and THROUGH IT...
...and whenever you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear this command behind you: “This is the way. Walk in it.” Isaiah 20:21 HCSB
When we find ourselves fighting the snow of life... a flowering tulip can emerge through it!
