Sometimes we miss but God is still counting on us! The Good News is that God still believes in you!
Last Sunday Evening, Nancy and I watched the Wild Card Game with Tom Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Dak’s Dallas Cowboys. Dak and the team were outstanding, yet there was an exception. That exception was placekicker Brett Maher. The Cowboys make a touchdown and Brett misses the extra point! The Cowboys make another touchdown and Brett misses another Extra Point. (I have never seen a kicker miss two extra points in a row) Let’s move on. The Cowboys make another touchdown and again Brett misses another extra point. Unbelievable. The Cowboys make another touchdown. Nancy looks at me and says, “Why don’t they go for the two-point conversion?” They did not listen to Nancy. Brett misses again. We are just stunned. Towards the end of the game, the Cowboys make another touchdown and are you ready for this? They don’t go for two they give Brett another try. As we cover our eyes, Brett kicked the ball and made the extra point. Cowboys beat Tom Brady’s team, 31 -14.
This week Cowboy Coach Mike McCarthy was asked if he was looking for another kicker. The Coach said “No, we need to get him back on it. Get him ready to go this week. We need him.”
The Lord is like that. We mess up but he wants to give us another opportunity again, again & again. The good news is this: God isn’t giving up on us. Keep on kicking those field goals. Sometimes you will miss but sometimes you will make it. He still loves you and wants you to stay in there and keep trying. “How ‘bout them Cowboys!”
God Still Gets a Kick Out of You!
Blessings! Pastor Charles
