In today’s post I would like to reach out to Christian Athletes.

And this post will be the shortest post I’ve ever written. It comes in the form of a question that I need help understanding.

How can you easily accept that Christianity asks you to be perfect like Christ (which is an actual impossibility but you still journey towards that goal), but when asked if you can win a national title in your sport you act like that journey is unrealistic and not worth even thinking about????Image result for decide

The truth is, every person only pursues what they truly want. Pursuit is the proof of desire. I feel like athletes have forgotten what athletics is about. I believe that student-athletes make the excuse of the national title being unrealistic because they don’t want to work super hard to become their absolute best and not because they believe that thinking about wins diminishes the purity of their sport.

You follow after Christ because you decided to and that’s all you need to do for any other goal – decide.

  1. An eye opener. I hope that every christian athlete read this. In fact, I hope everyone who reads and still sits in the “valley of decision” need their head examined. Thanks for pushing forward.

Mile 137: Who am I to say THIS about Cancel Culture! iS IT TRUE?

This new space in our culture called “cancel culture” where any person who disagrees with the growing popular perspective or have made a misstep verbally or behaviorally, whether in the present or in the past, can be cancelled (i.e. have economic means negatively impacted) is the epitome of a self-defeating movement. But…. This is not […]

Mile 137: (Question 3) Dealing with the rising emotions from the murder of George Floyd: a performance psychology strategy perspective.

I never thought that this process would have opened up the amount of deep conversations I’ve had with friends and colleagues because of what they’ve read in these posts. I appreciated every connection. Before I get into answering my final question in my process, I want to mention how inadequate what I’ve said and am […]

Mile 137: (Question 2) Dealing with the rising emotions from the murder of George Floyd: a performance psychology strategy perspective.

I have meditated on part 1 of my performance psychology strategy of analyzing my internal world because of our current cultural climate for a few days now. I’ve gotten to speak with some friends, pastors and business folk about their pov and listened to some podcasts. I’m trying to get different vantage points so I […]
