Since, Josiah’s coach tries to balance between coaching the Ann Arbor Arsenal Under 10 team and the Pioneer High School Varsity team, he had a conflict in schedule for this week. Last night, Josiah’s soccer coach invited the team to come and watch a soccer game between two local high schools.
Our family wasn’t planning on going but I thought it would be good to have Josiah and Elliot see a high school game. It was my hope that Josiah would be inspired as he saw older people play.
But by the end of the night, I was the one that got inspired. In fact, it brought back a lot of memories of my high school days when I played varsity soccer. As we walked into the stadium, I started to get chills… weird, huh? The lights, the concession stand, the announcer over the PA system, the parents, and the students. It brought everything back.
It was also weird because it was in that scene that I pushed God out of my life in high school. I missed the opportunity during my teenage years to use that platform to share Christ. This is another reminder for me to share Christ’s love with the platform that I have now.
