Last week Allatoona High gave our their 2015-2016 yearbooks. Under each photograph the seniors are able to give their favorite quote to share with other others. I was humbled that two of our pitchers actually quoted me – both made me laugh. One of our guys quoted my line for calls I don’t agree with made by umpires “that was brutal” ….sad that is now stuck in his head for years to come!! The other one however is one that has a lot packed in it, “trust your stuff kid”.
Any pitcher that steps on a mound has a million things swirling their minds and lots of fears ready to overwhelm you at any time! There are a lot of things that you are not going to be able to control (defense behind you, who is hitting, the weather, the umpire) but there is one thing that you can do……trust your stuff. The work that you have put in has prepared you for what you are going to do – don’t doubt it – trust it!
This is so true of life as well……God has gifted you and many times taken you through challenges to prepare you for where you are at and what you are doing. Fears and doubts surround you…discouragement waits for you….what do you do – TRUST YOUR STUFF. God has given you and will give you what you need to get through it – don’t doubt – TRUST IT and keep walking!
