The Great Coach (poem by me)

God saw me miss when I tried to kick the ball;
He saw me shoot and miss the net;
He saw me panting and out of breath;
Much to my surprise, after it all,
He hugged me and beamed
You made the team! 1

He said He is such a great coach
He can do much more with little
than others can do with the most2
He would train me and never give up
And stick with me when times got tough.3

The future, He already saw
And He says our team wins
Now people watch in awe
When on my finger, the ball spins
Thanks to His coaching technique,
Which is the love about which I speak.4

1But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen. —1Corinthians 1:27

2…where sin increased, grace increased all the more… —Romans 5:20

3…being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. — Philippians 1:6

4The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing. — Zephaniah 3:17
