God Always Has A Plan

Keith      Most people do not feel like a “has been” at age twenty-two. At that stage of life, almost everyone sees his/her adult life as just beginning. At twenty-two, I had already been on the fast track of two Major League Baseball organizations. I reached Triple A with the Expos at age nineteen, developed arm problems, was granted an unconditional release and sent home.  Cincinnati  then signed me as a free agent, and I started all over again at 20 in a Rookie League with the Reds. My arm recovered and I moved fairly quickly back up the minor league level. Soon after signing a Triple A contract with the Reds, I tore the anterior cruciate ligament in my left knee. Not a good injury for a pitcher in the mid-70’s.  My playing career was over at age twenty-two.
      In 1976, I found myself  an assistant basketball coach and assistant baseball coach at Lake Wales High School in Central Florida. At twenty-four, I remember watching some of my former teammates help the Cincinnati Reds become one of the most dominant teams in the history of the game, “the Big Red Machine.” I was never bitter, but I was heartbroken and felt, at times, like my life was over and had little purpose. Then, my coaching career took off and at age twenty-six I was named Head Baseball Coach at the University of Kentucky. I realized that whether you are 26 or 96, God is not finished with you! The world may give up on you, but God will never abandon you.
      In my daily Bible reading this morning, I was reminded that wherever we plan to go, whatever we want to do, we should make sure that we invite God to be our partner. God inspires with His Word in Psalm 143:8 & 10: “Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul. Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground.”
