Tim Tebow’s name is well recognized in many households. He has a very impressive string of personal accomplishments, including championship-level football, the Heisman Trophy, which is “awarded annually to the most outstanding player in college football in the country and whose performance best exhibits the pursuit of excellence with integrity. Winners epitomize great ability combined with diligence, perseverance, and hard work”, to quote directly from The Heisman Trophy webpage.

There is something inside of all of us that pushes us to be great.
While some will try put these callings away because it elevates the self, if one realizes that these are God given dreams, and they exist to propel us to do great things for the Kingdom of God, then everything falls into its proper place.
If we weren’t meant to push ourselves, why then would Paul encourage us with Philippians 4:13? The famous verse reads, “I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me.”
Tim Tebow, became more famous for his faith on and off the field than his athletic ability, but it was his athletic ability that gave him a platform to reach millions for the sake of Jesus.
Tim’s new book, This Is The Day, is written for those of us who have big dreams, but also deal with the fear that can stagnate those dreams.
Tim speaks to the purpose of why he wrote this book now,“now is the time to take some risks, to quiet the voices of defeat, to step forward and make a mark, because this is the day.”
It’s so good to see such a dynamic young man spreading a message of encouragement and hope. We have far too many negative voices surrounding us. He has a very long string of accomplishments (far too many to list here), and his past history of excellence has now given him a platform from which to encourage others to reach for the stars and for God’s perfect plan for each of us.
I was blessed with a family environment in which I was supported and cared for. I don’t know the exact age, but I believe it was before I was even a teenager that my father told me I could do anything I wanted to if I would just go for it. (Those aren’t his exact words, but that was what I got from it.) He never stopped me from trying something hard. Failure was just a lesson to do things differently, not something that became an assault on my character or an accusation of stupidity. As it turns out, everything I set my mind to, I have been able to accomplish.
For those who haven’t been so blessed, Tim’s message and example may be the ray of light they need to find a better path through life. I know my dad was totally unknown as a public figure, but in his own way he was every bit as much a hero to me as what Tim may become to someone else as he shares what he believes will make a difference to their lives, and the impact that difference will make in the world. Every single person is a special creation, with talents and abilities totally unique to the individual. God is the author of the plan, and when we find His will and recognize His plan, life is GOOD!
