What exactly is a God Chick? She is every single one of us! Afraid but courageously moving on, silly but full of responsibility, needy but independent, and most definitely either a coach, coach's wife, or both!!! At our last meeting we talked about being "Warrior Chicks", and I wanted to share this with all of you. Warriors Chicks always rise up in the middle of a rough season! No matter how bad the players, staff, or community can be we are called to our positions and should never abandon them. There are times when you may want to run and take cover, but know that God will never lead you or forsake you and that HE will give you the strength to face all of the battles that are placed in your path. Isaiah 40:28-29 says, "Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the Earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak." Be brave through Him!
Warrior Chicks also have the strength to forgive. Sometimes this means forgiving others, and sometimes it means forgiving yourself. Coaches and their spouses have some of the most stubborn egos of anybody in the world. This ego is what makes us good at who we are and what we do, but it can get in the way of what God calls us to do as spouses, parents, employees, and friends. There are times when I have to be the one to say, "I'm sorry." There are also times when I have to be willing to let go and move on!
Last but not least, Warrior Chicks are always willing to go on new missions. There are times when you and I need to form new relationships. This can be one of the scariest things that we will ever face!!!!!! Courage can always be found, however, when we trust that God has good things in store for us and that He will always lead us toward people who will build us up and encourage us. SOOOOOOOO, Warrior Chicks, move out!
Join us for our next God Chicks meeting!
