On March 28, 1990, the Chicago Bulls pro basketball team traveled to their rival Cleveland for a playoff game. Michael Jordan, arguably the greatest NBA player of all time, dominated, scoring 69 points in that game. That night, another lesser-known player for the Bulls, rookie Stacey King, took and missed 4 shots. Fortunately, he was fouled and awarded 2 free throws. Feeling the immense pressure, he missed the first. The crowd was going crazy; loud and rowdy, unsettling the rookie even more. The second free throw was up and good!! Game over, Chicago wins! After the game, the press bombarded Michael Jordan in the locker room. A reporter who couldn’t get close enough to Jordan stopped by Stacey’s locker. Asking Stacey what he would remember about this game, he replied, “I’ll always remember the night that Michael Jordan and I combined for 70 points.” That’s pretty funny considering that Michael Jordan scored 69 of those points. But the win was a team effort, and Stacey has a great perspective. What would it be like to have a Michael Jordan on your team? Pretty awesome, right? Now imagine having God on your team. When you are grounded in who you are (defined by the fact that you are a special, unique, lady created by God), and not who you may think that you are (defined by what you think of yourself or what others think of you), you realize that you’re incredibly important no matter how you “perform” or look or any other characteristic you believe about yourself. God created only one you. The earth currently has close to 7 billion occupants. There is no other you. He thought enough of you to give you life and purpose. That alone makes you special and very unique. Always remember that especially when you’re not feeling good about yourself or thinking that you’re not contributing to your softball team. God believes in you; we believe in you. Believe in yourself!
