Did any of you watch the Master’s Tournament this past weekend?
Michael and I enjoy watching golf, among other sporting events. This year’s Master’s Tournament was no different.
By now, though, I’m sure you heard that Bubba Watson won! :)
I must say that I’m a new fan. There’s something about his persona and spirit that’s just refreshing and wonderfully sincere.
What struck me, was his “victory interview.” It wasn’t just his tears of joy or the elation of the win, but it was the sheer fact that he was awestruck that he had, in fact, won!
As I sat there, listening to him speak between tears, this response to the intervier’s question stuck out to me…
Interviewer: Congratulations! Do you get a sense what it’s like to wear this Green Jacket?
Bubba Watson: …I never go this far in my dream…
This guy just won the Master’s Tournament for the first time and he was speechless. Why? Because he didn’t imagine he would be there. Never in his dreams. This reminds me of this…
Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]–
This win was beyond anything Bubba could have thought or even imagined. Even in his wildest dreams, he never, ever concieved the idea of winning the Master’s.
I find this encouraging as a Mompreneur!
You see, I have hopes, dreams, and ideas about the future of my family and business. But to know that even in my wildest dreams, God has something better for me – something that will render me speechless…WOW, just WOW!!!
My encouragement to you is, to keep dreaming and believing in your future. While you are doing so, relinguish those dreams to God. In the end, he will render you speechless concerning your future. It will be beyond anything you could ever ask, think, or imagine. :)
I hope we all end up like Bubba, speechless because we are in a place that we never imagined we’d be in. While there, we’re giving God all the glory, honor, and praise!
I know I’m looking forward to saying this myself,
I never got this far in my dream…
Dance with the King!
