For fifty-six minutes it looked like Greenbay was going to win the NFC championship.
In the next two minutes the Seahawks took the lead.
In the last two minutes, Greenbay tied the game.
In overtime the Seahawks won the game in the most dramatic fashion.
Why am I writing about it in my blog? The answer is pretty neat. As I was thinking about the game I realized it may be a metaphor for my life and perhaps your life too.
The Seahawks prepared for a game, The game did not go as planned. That is the same as my life, I prepared for a life with my family. The plan didn’t go as expected. The enemy attacked me with ALS.
For most of the game the Seahawks were done. The experts were showing statistics of how Greenbay had never lost a game after being sixteen points ahead. Russell Wilson, The Seahawks quarterback, paid no attention to the statistics. He held onto the belief that his team was supposed to win. In the same way I am struggling with ALS, been so for four years. The experts say I’m going to die in two years. After the two years I was supposed to live for six months. The latest prediction was I was supposed to die in ten days. But like Russell, I believe I am supposed to live and be healed. My game isn’t over and when victory comes, and it will, there will be a joyous noise to celebrate the Lord.
I don’t know what trials you are going through but remember, it isn’t over until God says it is. Meanwhile be faithful and believe that your Lord has it under control. I found a snippet from an interview with Russell Wilson after the game. He sums up this blog with his comments.
Enjoy and keep believing.
