March 2, 2018 playoffs


‘So let’s do it—full of belief, confident that we’re presentable inside and out. Let’s keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going. He always keeps his word. Let’s see how inventive we can be in encouraging love and helping out, not avoiding worshiping together as some do but spurring each other on, especially as we see the big Day approaching.’ (Hebrews 10:22-25 MSG)

Good morning, ConfidentOne,

My youngest son, Luke, and his team are in high school state basketball playoffs. Our little town has a population of about 600 in rural southwest Oklahoma.

This is a big deal.

This result makes it okay for us to have raised sons with some sort of basketball goal in our living room for the past 20+years! Ha!

This team of 19 young men is a fresh sight to watch play under the direction of their coach. There is a certain focused mindset; perpetual movement, and fierce groundedness when these guys play well. You can feel it.

I am most fascinated by what it takes to stay focused in each game in spite of all the hype that is going on around them. They are learning to surrender to the coaching that will help them be all that they can be. Cooperation and coordination and the willingness to react to the one on the court with the skills for the ever-changing situation at hand takes time together. Each player’s impact is multiplied when they work together. I am, of course, linking their finesse on the court to life’s bigger game … survival and evolution of the soul, eternity.

Hearing Coach-God-of-the-Angel-Armies amid the hype and chaos and even in the boredom that comes in everyday life means one must make intentional effort.

Time together.

The whistle blows, the Master back-fills the empty, places with necessary changes.

He is the provider of

constant interplays,

constant discards,

constant replacement of ideas,

constant get-back-out-there,

constant fueling,

constant boldness,

constant courage,

constant direction,

constant energies.

Without the consistent, fueling direction of God, the undisciplined one puddles into havoc.

Open up your senses in your minutes to the consistent prompting of the Master on your life court.  Start now.

Wake up. Be intentional. Go.
