For the LOVE

I love the Broncos! I have loved them since I was a kid. They are my team....and I'm a loyal fan. I watched when I was may have started with dad, but we watched with mom after they split up. I've gone through seasons of just following the scores...maybe catching a game or two. For the last few years I've been following much more closely.

So, over the past year or so I've started to really care about the players. I'm not just talking about the QB and the star receiver, but a lot of these guys. I've actually found myself praying for them....ok...maybe I'm getting a little crazy. No, I'm not just praying for them to win....or even praying for them to play their best...but I'm praying for them to connect with God and have a relationship with Jesus.

I hate to say it, but with the playoffs on the line next Sunday, I'm wondering if my prayers have been effective in a way i hadn't expected. Has this adversity....this pressure....come as a result of one or more of these guys asking the tough questions? What does God want for me?

I know that God works all things together for those who love Him. And I also know I tend to want to affect the game even when I know I have nothing to do with it. Just ask my family which colors they won't be allowed to wear next Sunday.

But somehow, I've come to love these a result of my love of this team. Now, for the LOVE....GO OUT AND WIN!!!!
