Taking the Field

Last night my husband and I watched "We Are Marshall," a wonderful movie about the courage of a town and university to move forward with courage after a devastating plane crash claimed the lives of the Marshall University football in 1970. I was struck my one scene where the new coach brought in to rebuild the team talked about sometimes it's not about winning, but just about taking the field--even when difficult and hard.

I reflected how many times in life, we can allow ourselves to be overcome by despair when we face suffering or struggles. Satan wants to use fear of pain and failure to rob us of the joy and victory that we have in Christ. We are overcomers in Him who conquered death, and Satan has no dominion over us--unless we give it to him.

While life is not always easy--God never promised it would be. He did promise that He would be with us. We have no reason to fear! So when you face challenges and feel like sitting out of the game, take the field--I promise you will not be alone!

Blessings on your weekend!

In Him,
