This year’s games were truly magnificent from the swimming to the running, America was well represented and our medal count was outstanding. There were several points in the Olympics that people stood out far above the competition. One such person was Michael Phelps and the other was little Simone Biles. Both of these athletes stood out far above the crowd and will go down in the history books as pure Gold.
I watched many hours of the Olympics and I heard the best of the best giving glory and praise to God for their talent and for their life. When we put the Lord first and give Him the glory for what we accomplish, then I believe He will open gates for us and help us to win. I believe in the saving grace of Jesus, and many of the athletes at the Olympics voiced their beliefs in front of a great crowd of people.
I found one other thing while watching the Olympics , and that was the commercials the athletes did with their mothers. The Bible says to honor your mother and father and these commercials were doing just that. The one with Simone Biles was the one that sticks out in my mind, she was standing looking at a tornado and her mother called her to go to shelter. Then she was hugging her mom in the stands at the Olympics !
So as the Olympics come to a close so does this post, just reminding you to give the Glory to God and you will come out on top win or lose. We all need to learn from these young athletes, that when we are put on top, we give God all the praise for it.
