Week 6 Post B
As I was reading my book Quiet Strength this quote really stood out to me; from Jeremiah 29:11: “for I know the plans I have for you,’ says the Lord. ‘They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope” (Pg 228). When I read this quote it really related to me as an athlete. As an athlete I am always working so hard for my goal in life, which is to play college hockey for the North Dakota Fighting Sioux. I know that God has a plan for me, but I can’t resist thinking about what that is going to be. This quote shared with me that no matter what God has a plan for you that will be good. Also that he wants to give you a future, and a hope to achieve your goal. I also can relate to this quote because as an athlete you always deal with disappointments whether it’s being cut from a team or having a bad game, and this quote helps you deal with those disappointments because you know that God has a plan for you. I really respect what Tony Dungy says because I know he was a good football player that dealt with many disappointments, and I respect what he says very much.
