Mound Visits, 10/15/16
At 22 I had already reached ‘Triple A’ with two MLB organizations. I was fired from my dream job at 22. I really thought my life was over. But God in His incredible love and mercy had a better plan. It started with finishing my education then coaching at Lake Wales HS, followed by a graduate assistantship at Mississippi State, then 25 yrs as a head baseball coach at Kentucky. In ’75, I thought my life was over, God knew it was just beginning. “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.'” We are in the very best place we can be when we submit to God’s plan.
