Last fall, a Des Moines Register article on Iowa's starting quarterback, CJ Beathard, and his faith, also featured our son, Jay... Read article... A simple phone call and all that transpired thereafter has poured more timely strength and courage into our family in and through Jay than I'm sure will ever be known.
As football season starts up, we honor and respect CJ not just for incredible talent and hard work but for character and love for Jesus Christ.
Jay texted this to CJ last week:
“You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You. So trust in the Lord (commit yourself to Him, lean on Him, hope confidently in Him) forever; for the Lord God is an everlasting Rock [the Rock of Ages].”
Isaiah 26:3-4 AMP
A great promise for every one of us!
We are cheering on ALL the Iowa Hawkeyes as always this year and looking forward to this coming football season.
