Honoring God in Tough Circumstances

Last night the Texas Longhorns played the Alabama Crimson Tide in the National Championship game for college football. Alabama won the title 37-21.

In my last post, I closed with these words regarding Colt McCoy, Texas' star quarterback about his last collegiate game: "Colt, I hope and pray your light does shine for Him tomorrow night and beyond!"

McCoy was injured and knocked out of the game on the fifth play of the game which severely hindered the Longhorns. So, by all accounts it looked like Colt would not be able to let his light shine for God. However, that is not how it turned out. Check out the short video above to see how he glorified God in spite of the tough circumstances.

Way to go Colt!

Yes way to go Colt. As a UT alum this was a tough loss, but I was blessed by his faith in the Ultimate Victor. He spoke with the faith and wisdom of Job, "Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return. The LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD."

Kit, you are right on. Colt McCoy is a great example to us all.
