The football analogy occurred to me this morning during meditation. God was my quarterback and I was the guy who God was handing the ball off to. It occurred to me too that God probably has a pretty good team and if I believe that and run with the ball, probably, the team will protect me. It seems though that I often go head on with the opposite team and sometimes get knocked down. Now, I thought, who the heck are these other guys and why are they trying to knock me down? In my analogy is this Satan's team? The answer came pretty quick though. The other guys are my own challenges and insecurities. After all, this is all happening in my head and really, all the players are aspects of me. The guy I seem to be unable to get past so I can get the ball to the goal is a giant player named Fear (of being foolish) I think. The meditation this week though seems to be giving me some good yardage though. I am pretty sure I am 1st and ten now. I think I am almost ready to take the ball again. . .
