An amazing story of one player

Another win/win tonight as Temple won the game but both teams won in sportsmanship and character.  See my other football post for more details on exactly what I mean.

Here is the amazing story about tonight's game.  During the first game of the season, one of the players was seriously injured and had to be taken away by ambulance to the local children's hospital.  We were given reports that this young man could not feel his legs.  Everyone that knew him prayed.  They asked others they knew to pray.  Still in the middle of the night, the young man was not improving.  Morning came and something happened.  He started gaining feeling back in his legs.  I believe it was a miracle and so many parents and student's faith was strengthened.

He has been resting for the past month.  His heart has been with his team.  Tonight, this young man was back on the field.  He didn't play the entire game but the plays he was in, he did an incredible job.  I think he and his family were able to show the fans that they serve a God that not only can heal, but can take away fear of the future.  We are not guaranteed tomorrow.  We only have right now and tonight's right now was pretty amazing.


  1. Amen! Wow, what a wonderful story of how prayer & hope can change a life!
