Olympics 2008!!

I don’t know about Ya’ll, but if the Olympic Gymnastic Judges didn’t give Shawn Johnson a winning score last night in the balance beam event finals I was marching to the SF airport and demanding to be put on the next flight to Bejing. Is it just me or does the judging seem to be a little one-sided? I don’t know, call it what you want – home court advantage or whatever you want. I think I’m a little bitter still at the Uneven bar event Final in which Nastia got screwed.

On that note………How bout them games!!! I have been glued to the TV from about 8-12am every night watching China and the U.S. duke it out for the most medals. From Michael Phelps’ and Dara Torres’ finger-tip finishes to Usain Bolt obliterating the 100m Finals, leaving the rest of the world in awe, wondering how fast he might have run it had he not began celebrating 70m down the track. I got one word: FREAK!

1 Corinthians 9:24-27

24Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.

 25Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. 26Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air. 27No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.

May the Olympics forever remind us of the wonderful gifts, talents, and blessings God has bestowed on man. May it always be a spiritual foreshadowing for our own Heavenly Parade of Nations. When every Nation, Tribe, and Tongue will worship and celebrate Jesus as King.

For HIS Glory!!
