People have no idea how hard these kids work for this "one shining moment"! Every day some young man wakes up to go to work at his "job" in some lonely gym. Sure they get their education paid for and that is an incredible fringe benefit. But make no mistake, that full scholarship involves more than playing a game. It's a full-time job! Very few make it this far, and even fewer go to the next level.
So I can understand the jubilation of winning a national championship. You worked so hard. You gave your all. You worked as a team. You reached the ultimate goal in your "profession".
However, I love it even more when the few recognize that it was the Lord that gave them the gifts they have, and they play their best so He would shine. They Get It!
When you give your all for the Lord, no matter what you do, you are a winner! Colossians 3:23-24! If that is you, then you can rejoice with these young men, because you also are among the rare few who have achieved "Your Shining Moment"!
Enjoy this song!
