The death crawl. Have you heard of it? It sounds horrible, doesn’t it? Like crawling to your death or something.
Now, despite being a sports junkie,I don’t necessarily love football. I’d much rather sit and watch a baseball or basketball game, anyday. BUT…that having been said…I’ve found some football movies that have been really good. Mostly because it’s not just about the game but about teamwork or motiviation. Or even faith.
I’ve heard a bunch about this movie, “Facing the Giants,” but have not seen it. A facebook friend of mine sent me a clip of the movie on Sunday. And let me tell you, it rocked my world.
The clip is six minutes long, but I hope you watch it. I truly believe you’ll be moved, even if you hate sports…seriously.
Just like the coach is next to that kid the entire way, encouraging him, yelling at him, and challenging him, God is there for us as well. Yep, even when things are feeling too painful, or our arms and legs are burning from the death crawl of life, He is there.
Are we listening for Him?
We can go further than we ever imagined if we’re focused on His voice guiding us through it all.
Has there ever been a movie that has affected you in an unexpected way?
It doesn’t necessarily have to be a sports movie.
For me, another is “Remember the Titans” and “Hoosiers.”
