Bulldogs and MORE Bulldogs!

By November 4, 2010 Western

Wow…What a day yesterday.  I was given the privilege and honor of speaking to the Gering Bulldogs Volleyball team at their team dinner a day prior to their district match-up against either Sidney or McCook today in Ogallala.  The parents who wanted me to speak asked me to speak on motivation in hopes of some inspiration going into District play.  As I thought about what to share I could not think of a better motivation than love and specifically a love for Jesus because of what He has done for us on the cross for our sin.  Pray for this team as they prepare to compete that every action they have on the court for the rest of this season would be motivated out of a love for Jesus because of His sacrifice. 

After spending time with the Gering Bulldogs I made the 30 mile trip to Bridgeport to spend some time with the Bridgeport Bulldogs FCA Huddle.  We spent some time talking about the Goal God has for us in becoming more like Jesus through every circumstance we come across as we compete in view of God’s Mercy.  I am excited for Bridgeport’s Huddle Coach Monty Ogard and his heart to see the athletes and coaches at Bridgeport High School impacted for Jesus Christ.  Pray for this group as they continue to dig into what it looks like to do sports for the Glory of God because of Jesus.

Heading to Hastings today to speak at the Hastings College FCA.  It will be exciting to come back to a place that had such a big part in my life.  Then off to the Weekend of Champions in Grand Island.  Hope to see you there!
