What’s in Your Hand?

baseballA friend named Danny was coaching baseball at Riesel ISD in the early 1970’s.   During practice one of his players hit a long foul ball that landed where the high school band was practicing.  A trombone player, Joey, picked up the baseball and threw it all the way back past the home plate backstop!  Danny immediately sent one of his players to find the person who threw that ball.  Joey exchanged a trombone for a baseball and became the team’s starting pitcher.  They went on to win the state championship.

 Has the Lord placed an opportunity at your feet? Pick it up. He has a great plan waiting for you. “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.” (Ephesians 2:10)
