Super Bowl: No Horse in this Race

Author | Steve

We’ve been getting ready for the past two days to have a bunch of friends over for one last party at our Katy, Texas home. The Super Bowl will be on, but to be honest, I’m really just rooting for one team to lose (I’ll let you guess which one). The more important thing will be hanging out with some great friends God has given us in a pretty short amount of time.

Not having a team in the big game got me to thinking about something Jamie and I have been struggling with for the past few days since launching this blog…we don’t want our story to be about anything other than Jesus, trusting Him and bringing Him glory. We’ve seen real quickly how our story can become about us, or glamorizing faith, or glamorizing generosity…or any number of things other than lifting up Jesus. That would be a travesty! Our Trust Adventure would be completely doomed from the start. That would not be worth watching at all!

So, I want to say this up front: our hope and prayer in sharing our story is that it will 1) point you to Jesus who loves you with an unquenchable love, and 2) get you to question some of the things you take for granted in your life that just might have become idols.

For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.  But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. (2 Corinthians 4:6-7)

A little extra gift is that telling our story keeps us connected with many of you whom God has placed in our life, and we are so grateful for you.

That’s all. Not much. But really important for me to say.

Now…Come on Seattle! Destroy those Patriots!

  1. I understand that you felt a need to explain or clarify your intent but I hope it helps to know that I couldn’t think of you and Jamie in any other way than as how you have described. I will be following your story and praying for your family. I trust your heart and your motives and know that God has worked through you in ways that you are unaware and will undoubtedly continue to do so. I like your points 1&2 and and admit to being convicted by #2, something I am trying to work on personally. Go with God, my friends and Go Seahawks, if for no other reason than to keep the Patriots from winning!
