When I was a teenager I was a pitcher on our baseball team. Like most pitchers of that age I had two pitches...the heat (fastball) which for a left handed 15 year old was blazing fast but very predictable. It would get most simply because their 15 year old brains couldn't process what to do quickly enough. My other pitch was a sidearm pitch that I called my screwball because it was hard for the batter to figure out where it was going....sometimes it was hard for me to figure out where it was going. Needless to say, after one of these coming at your head then breaking for the zone you were a little weary of what the next pitch would be.
Sometimes life just throws us a screwball, we see it coming but we have no idea where it will end up. I am a planner meaning that I like to know what is going to happen before it happens...but life doesn't always follow my plan. In those times, I need to remember that my God knows exactly where that screwball pitch is going and how it will impact my life. He comforts me with His words....I will never leave you, I will never forsake you.
If life is throwing you screwballs, pull out God's word...and lean into Him today!
I write stuff. I talk about the stuff I write. God has blessed my life in more ways that I can list. I am not nearly as smart as I think I am. God is very patient with me. God has demonstrated how much He loves me. He gave me His only son Jesus. He gave me my wife. He gave me 5 wonderful children and so far 8 beautiful grandchildren. I am blessed above all men.
