So excited about the football game last night.  Then there was the accident on the field.   Damar Hamlin collapses on the field after a normal football hit.  The paramedics had to administer CPR.

It was hard to watch I was grateful that they didn’t keep replaying the Play. 

24 years old and had cardiac arrest on the football field. Gut wrenching.  I personally felt totally helpless.   I did what probably most Americans did last night, and I prayed for him.

I think it just goes to show there are no atheist in foxholes. I was grateful to see so many praying.

John 14:27 (ESV) 27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.

I believe the NFL made the correct decision by  suspending the game. This is so much bigger than the game itself. 

Galatians 6:10 (ESV) 10 So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.

I have to say I had to really guard my thinking last night. Because I was going down the road thinking there’s only one more week of football before the playoffs, how are they going to get this figured out?? And then I had to tell myself, really? you are worried about the playoffs when there’s a man down on the field.  Honestly I did not stay there very long.

I pray for a complete speedy recovery for this young man.
