Bottom of the Ninth, Part 3: "Game Over"
In the game of life, it’s easy to find yourself down and heading into the bottom of the ninth. Sometimes you make a comeback. But sometimes life doesn’t work out as you hoped or planned. You lose . . . and loss hurts. Where can you find hope when hope disappears? Are you facing a bottom-of-the-ninth moment right now? Are you down and maybe even out? Pray this prayer: God, while I do not desire to be in this circumstance now or in the future, I do want you to use every day for your glory and your good. Give me strength to fight for what you would fight for. If I lose the game, I pray that I will finish strong and increase the faith of others. I pray this in your Son’s name. Amen.
