What did we learn?

We learned, at our volleyball invitational, that we are good enough to play with any team we will face and that we are not good enough to play bad and win no matter who we are playing. We played very well today against the toughest pool of teams at the invitational. Unfortunately that only resulted 1 win and 5 losses in our 6 games of pool play. The best team that I saw all day was in our pool and we really played them tough and should have won 1 of the games. Then in what turned out to be our final match, against the weakest team I saw all day we lost. We beat them easily 25-6 in the first game and then lost the next two to finish with a very bad taste in our mouths.

Now the real coaching begins, to keep the team focused and looking forward without forgetting how bad that last match felt.

In life we are always needing to remind ourselves that we need to be ever vigilant in our lives as followers of Jesus Christ. That we can never think that we don't need to work at the relationship, or not work at resisting temptation or no work at witnessing to others. With the help of Christ and His Holy Spirit we can win in any situation, but on our own we can't make it at all.

Remember, we have the best coach and never have to wonder if our coach will make the right call.
