I thought about posting this to one of the 8Bit Properties, but thought that I’d have my authorship credentials revoked since it dealt with sports. I decided to be safe and post it here.
Just saw this:
Steve Johnson is a wide receiver for the Buffalo Bills. He dropped the pass, in overtime, that would have won the game for the Bills today. Watching the play, you have to feel for him. Understandably, he probably felt a whole range of emotions today. First joy as the pass was coming and he was wide open. Second, fear as he realized his grip wasn’t sure and the ball deflected to the turf. Third as he feels embarrassment as he sits there in the end zone and realizes what just happened. I’m sure that there were other emotions running through his system at the moment.
Later, after it all sinks in, you have the emotion of Anger.
What’s interesting to me is that a lot of people are saying that Steve’s tweet is blaming God for the dropped pass. I’m not so sure. I’m sure that this is raw emotion talking (tweeting) and unfortunately, Steve is gonna get a WHOLE lot more attention because of this tweet than he would have because of the dropped pass. But, the thing that sticks out to me is that Steve obviously has some solid foundation to him, because even though he is questioning the situation… he is expecting to learn something from this. While we can’t see the end game, God does. God allows things to happen to us to build into us and to grow us.
Hey Steve, Hold your head up. Praise Him in the storms.
