Coach Gerald's Tip of the Week: Life Isn't Fair - We all encounter hardships.


" I have told you these things so that in me you will have peace. In this world you will have trouble but take heart I have overcome the world." John 16:33

This week was filled with some very unfortunate news. No, in my opinion it was not fair. I am not going to go into all the details. That is not the point. What is the point is I was reminded of scripture this week.

John 16:33 Paraphrase: We will have troubles in life. However God is with us despite the troubles we encounter.

I don’t fault the people that made the decisions against me. I look at them as just the messengers of God's plan for me. Don’t shoot the messenger. I look at it as God's plan for them as well to reveal my impacts and my worth. They did not take anything away from me. No it doesn’t feel good. No I don’t agree with the decisions but I am sitting patiently waiting for God to reveal the next part of my plan. I know I am a great coach and God will use my coaching abilities in the next phase he has for me.

It is my prayer that this will allow you to stop and think of your life whether it be training, work, health and sit patiently waiting for the next phase of what God has for you despite the hardship/challenges in your life.

Coach Gerald
