“And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” – Romans 8:28
Everyone on this team has different roles and responsibilities. Find a teammate and ask each other the following questions:
1. What part do you play on this team?
2. Do you think you have an important purpose?
One of my jobs as your coach is to come up with a plan that will help you be your very best and give the team its best chance for success.
But did you know that God has a plan for you too? It’s not just a plan for you as an athlete. It’s a plan for your whole life!
God’s plan isn’t just any plan. It’s a very good plan!
The Bible tells us that, “[We] will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.” – Romans 12:2b
God’s plan for you will always involve three important things:
1. Your skills.
These are things you are good at. So, let me ask you, raise your hand and tell me what you’re good at.
2. Your passions.
Your passions are things you love. Raise your hand and tell me what you love.
3. Your gifts.
This involves how you can serve others. Once more, how can you serve others with your skills and passions?
Thinking about those things will help you know if the plan is God’s plan!
And remember—God lovingly created you in His image so you can trust that His plan for your life is by far the best plan.
Let’s close in prayer together:
“Dear God, thank You for giving me an important purpose in life. Help me to know your plan and show me how to follow it every day. Amen.”
