Angels in the out field

Day 57

A new page of my countdown, the team got scheduled to play basketball last night, but my team mates left me. I didn’t see any missed calls on my phone from them, or any text messages that they are already on their way to the camp. perhaps I will accept the fact that it was my mistakes, why I am not with them at that moment… I know I fell asleep, I just felt tired, I need to have a rest for a while and I need to take a nap.

Anyway, I still didn’t lose my hope to play for tonight’s game, I called my driver to drove me to the camp which is the place we were just playing basketball all the time. then, I arrived at the place at the right time, the game wasn’t started yet. I took my warm up, I do lots of stretching to free my muscles on any cramps that will occur during the game.

“Let the game begins!” commentator said.

I’m always on the first five in the beginning of the game. however, in the first quarter of the game the sky blue lead the game by 6 points. At first, I didn’t do some scoring stuff, coz my hands pulse was still very weak to do some shooting skills but I just let my hand felt the fire of the game, so what I did was having some assist, setup the play, dribbling to the next court and fast break to the open man that’s what I did in the first quarter, but of course I got a little scores during the game.

Then, in the second quarter they increases the lead by 15 points, their just laughing. I don’t like the sign that was happening to the game. I’m at the bench, have some rest, restoring my stamina and endurance. Next, I put my towel on my head and I covered my face so nobody could see me.

then, I prayed, “oh god, oh lord almighty, the ruler of heaven and earth, please grant me your power and strength to help my team wins the game not only for me but for the benefit of the whole team, or just send your angel to provide my team mates luck in any point of directions they will attempt to shoot in and in addition, please grant my team just one win, just for one win…. Amen”. With sincerity.

I removed the towel on my face… I heard the time was 6 minutes… and the performance of the white team in the ball game was a mess… I decided to take my team time out for the first time, so they can rest. I am back to the ball game and ready to take my full blast. But still my prayer was connected on my mind, I know god was good. I’m ready, my spirit was hungry for winning, I took a quick glance on the score it was 45-30, they lead the game by 15 points, my team mates has losses their hopes, the spirit was low. but I didn’t showed to them that I am losing hope too… thought.

first jump shot, I’d scored…. I drive to the hoop.. I’d scored… I drive for the layup I missed but i took the foul for penalty, and I have 2 free throws attempt… again my prayer reminds me on my head… while I focus my eyes on the ring…. ”just one win” I murmured.

1st attempt, and the 2nd attempt was good, and at that moment I just losing my air in the top of my lungs..and my knees was about to bend down at the free throw line. I’ve got lots of scores during second quarter and I took another quick looked at the scores it was 45-45, I was surprised when I saw it, I didn’t expected it to be tied up at the second quarter. But I am tired, I after my breath inside my throat, I’m losing air. I went back to the bench to rest…

Start of the third quarter the game was good, they just exchanging scores.

To make the story short, I will jumped to the 4th quarter, I am on the tight defensive play by the sky blue, and they assign one player to follow me anywhere I go. So, Meaning they don’t want me to add more scores to the scoreboard, but you know God was great, my team mates got luck in any point of direction they got their scores in any attempt they will made. I’m surprised, I felt happy my prayer was working, we have angels in the out field… but then I do some mistakes at the last minutes of the 4th quarter I’ve got fouled out.

But anyway were not losing yet, my team mates steal the ball and they got three bonus free throw attempts that has been counted and take the lead by 4 points. the games was fun and lots of excitement. Then the final scores was 86-82.

The white team wins the game.

My mood: 5.3/10

Sometimes the game we are playing seems like the most important thing in our whole lives. Congratulations for hanging in there and not giving up, and turning to God for strength is a wise thing...though he doesn't promise to help us win all games. If your attitude had been one of defeat, your team mates would not have had the enthusiasm to finish so well.

Tumblewords:

Great - hope you can keep the streak going!
