A couple Thursday evenings ago our family was gifted 4 Green Bay packer tickets. Growing up in a family of die hard colts fans, you can imagine the mixed emotions! My youngest brother though, has parted over into the dark side & has been a packer fan for a few years now. Every time we visit WI, he is one blessed boy!
We decided to put our differences aside for one evening & make it an enjoyable time for B! Into the Uber we go, off to Lambeau Field. We got there & in our seats an hour before the game would begin even after I had delayed us. So we watched as green & mustard yellow people filled the stadium.
Big & small ones, short & tall ones-all there to scream & cheer for their favorite team (most of them wearing cheese hats, my brother included)
The game began, I tried to figure out what was going on while acting like I knew. Finally I just figured if they had the ball, it was good! Lol
Because they were not really my team & because I was the only girl in the group I became the refill runner & nacho nagger. Lol
The 2nd quarter was winding down & I headed down to get some snacks for everyone before the halftime crowd emerged.
In search for cheese-curds I looked up to see a big black sign with a girl jumping over a poll on it. It read “we write the comeback stories” & all of the sudden refills, cheese curds & nachos didn’t matter. It hit me as hard as one of those big guys on the field was hitting the other big guy.
My life is a comeback story, His life was a comeback story.
When the stone was set in place & Satan thought he had finally got the upper hand-God had a comeback story ready to read aloud for the whole world to hear.
Everyone’s story can be one of triumph, one with a great comeback ending but we must comeback first.
I remember thinking while sitting on those cold silver seats “who’s the underdog? That’s who I will always cheer for”
I have news for you,
no matter what has been thrown into your life,
no matter who has hurt you so bad you feel your tarnished forever,
no matter what you have done that will leave a mark of shame on your story-
God is cheering for you!
You will look for Me and find Me, when you look for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you,’ says the Lord. ‘And I will bring you back and gather you from all the nations and all the places where I have made you go,’ says the Lord.
His eyes are on you, His arms are open ready to embrace you, His feet are ready to run to you but you gotta take the first step.
His pen is ready to write your comeback story, are you ready to let Him?
