To God Be The Glory

Slide 6 of 12: MINNEAPOLIS, MN - FEBRUARY 04: Head coach Doug Pederson of the Philadelphia Eagles celebrates after defeating the New England Patriots 41-33 in Super Bowl LII at U.S. Bank Stadium on February 4, 2018 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Everyone has a story. So what’s yours? Millions of people watched the Super Bowl game over the weekend. The NFL highlights two of the best teams in their leagues.  Interviews begin as the excitement builds.  Lights. (there’s so many of them)  We eagerly anticipate the big day to sit around the big screens rooting for our favorite players and teams.    I listened as the stories began in my house. They were all about football, the calls the referees made, the snacks and good food, the best commercials, the sports commentators, and of course the half-time show. Then it was all over.  Our stories ended at the final score and the victorious win. Some of the players continued with their stories of sweet memories, hard work and dedication.  My attention was caught by a coach who said  these simple words, “all glory to God” and mentioned His Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in his interview.  His story was not I am the best coach and my team just won the Super Bowl, his story gave glory to God. I don’t know his personal story but I thought, now that’s what I call living on pitch! That coach knows what I know, to give God all the glory is how you celebrate a victory and is by far the best part of the believer’s story.

Prayer: Dear Lord, no matter what I accomplish in life, let my story always be about you and for your glory.  Amen.

  1. You know sis, that’s it! Whenever I watch any type of an award show or interview honoring and or celebrating a person for any type of great accomplishment, no matter what! I listen for and am curious to see who will lift up, praise, thanksgiving, honor, and glory to God for the blessing. Sometimes many forget.

    It’s is so touching and sometimes a tear jerker for me, happy tears of course. Living On Pitch it is, I agree. Beautiful! Again, thanks for the lovely write-up and for your continued inspiration. 🙂
