By Lane P. Jordan:
Finding God while playing tennis seems a little ludicrous! But, when you have been too ill to get out of bed, you realize that every moment of being healthy is a gift from God.
So here I was today, hitting a backhand and then running to the net. That’s when I realized how blessed I was to have a healthy body and strong legs to help me run.
I have a strong heart to keep my blood moving, healthy eyes in which to see the tennis ball, and sharp ears to hear when it bounces.
And that’s when I realized that God made all that possible. He healed my body and my emotions so that I was able to get back to my life, fully living.
Some people would say God has more important things on His mind than seeing us play tennis. I believe that He came to give us life and life abundantly!
I believe He smiles when we are playing and laughing and having fun here on His earth!
Whether we are solving the world’s problems or finding joy in a beautiful and remarkable day, God smiles.
And He is waiting for you to find Him too. It may be finding God on a tennis court, or somewhere quite different.
Praise Him today for ways he has healed you and for the physical senses he has given you!
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Philippians 4:4 (NIV Bible)
