My family enjoys watching football...really enjoys watching football,I know I've mentioned it before!I used to enjoy it too,but lately haven't been into it much.This past football season I didn't have enough interest to watch even one game all the way through,who has the time,there are more important things you can do besides sitting on the couch for hours,that was my attitude towards the games...until last Sunday.I was watching the New England play Baltimore.Believe it or not I think both teams are great!I was actually looking forward to watching this game and as it turned out this game was different from the past few games that I have watched.By this game I was encouraged,brought to tears.How? Once again I saw a man bringing glory to God.God glorified the man and was proclaiming that He is real for all who would listen and believe.You saw the game,you know who I am talking about.No it wasn't Tim Tebow this time,but I believe that Tebow made an impact on Ray Lewis.How beautiful it was to see Ray on his knees,proclaiming how good God is.It's just football you can say,it's not that important.True it's not the most important to those who don't like football,but to Ray it is,it's his mission field.Come to think of it,it is pretty important!Much is dedicated to football in America,people love it but before Tim Tebow came along the One who deserves all the glory wasn't getting it.God the main character!!!God the creator of everything,including the brains who made up the game of football.Last year Tim Tebow told the world that God is a great part of life.Last Sunday Ray Lewis did the same and quess what,God was there!God was glorified and God gave the Ravens victory over I would admit one of the best teams out there.God works in different ways!I believe you can be anywhere, you don't have to be in Africa or some other foreign country to bring glory to God.If you are able to go somewhere,go, but if not be a Tim Tebow or Ray Lewis where you are.Thinking about the way Ray gave glory to God makes me excited!It was so awesome to watch and made me say to myself I can do it too.What's there to lose? Not a thing,because you gain all you need,God himself,His protection and joy! Psalm 91 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.I will say of the Lord,"He is my refuge and my fortress,my God,in whom I trust."Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare and from the deadly pestilence.He will cover you with his feathers,and under his wings you will find refuge;his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.You will not fear the terror of night,nor the arrow that flies by day,nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,nor the plague that destroys at midday.A thousand may fall at your side,ten thousand at your right hand,but it will not come near you.You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.If you make the Most High your dwelling-even the Lord,who is my refuge-then no harm will befall you,no disaster will come near your tent.For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands ,so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.You will tread upon a lion and the cobra;you will trample the great lion and the serpent."Because he loves me,"says the Lord,"I will rescue him;I will protect him,for he acknowledges my name.He will call upon me,and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble,I will deliver him and honor him.With long life will satisfy him and show him my salvation." God is so good!!!
