Mondays are known to have a bad rap. It’s no surprise—the much looked forward to weekend has ended, and it’s back to school, or back to work, or back to whatever it is we do. Methodist Pastor Roxy Moses makes Mondays (especially Monday mornings) easier for the students at The Family Foundation School.
She makes it a point to get everyone involved in the service. Being chosen to stand up in front of the whole school and perform some type of act always manages to wake everyone up. This week, Pastor Roxy Moses asked for three volunteers who know anything about baseball to stand up. Two of them acted out a baseball game while the other judged how well the ball (invisible, of course) was pitched or batted. Finally, on the third try, the batter hit the “ball” and Roxy Moses called a home run!
After the volunteers sat down, Roxy Moses showed us how baseball is symbolic of our relationship with God. Sometimes, “balls” come flying at us in life when we’re not ready. We didn’t see the situation coming, and didn’t prepare for it. However, if we have blind faith that God will lead us, we can hit any ball that comes our way. Occasionally, it might seem as if we missed a pitch. That’s only because we didn’t take care of the situation the way we would have liked to.
Lucky for us, God sees and knows everything, and we do not. What seems to us a missed ball is not in God’s sight.
