Consider this scenario. You are down by 6 points 1 min left in the game….and it’s 4th and 20 with the ball on the 30 yard line.
Also, you have just been sacked 3 times in a row and you really had your clock cleaned with that last sack.
Your view of the field is severely limited by your vantage point and the fact that you can’t see straight.
Who do you think should be calling the next play? You with your current conditions or the offensive coordinator who is in the skybox?
You know the offensive coordinator who has been studying the defense the whole game and who sits in air conditioned comfort and calculates all the possibilities with each defensive lineup.
You ALL-ways have the opportunity to remember that the offensive coordinator is on your team. S/HE really wants you to win just as much as you do. S/HE has your best interest in mind.
Surrendering to the other part of you (in this case the other part of the team) that is not on the field getting pummeled each play may not be such a bad idea.
Who’s calling your plays? Your limited mind or your limitless Spirit?
You could let Inspiration guide you and trust that at the end of the day, it will have been much more enjoyable and rewarding this way.
Now, imagine showing up on the field of your life and doing what your inspiration (the offensive coordinator) tells you to.
Wow, I bet at the end of the game of life, you would be on your death bed saying, “I played full out and have ZERO regrets.”
That would be incredible! Will that be you?
