Former Notre Dame football coach Lou Holtz, speaking at the annual sales meeting of the Western Insurance Companies, said, "I've been on the top and I've been on the bottom. At Arkansas my first year, we won the Orange Bowl. Then everybody loved me.
"They put me into the Arkansas Hall of Fame and issued a commemorative stamp in my honor. The next year we lost to Texas, and they had to take away the stamp. People kept spitting on the wrong side.
"One year I tried to sell cemetery plots for a living. My wife told me I couldn't sell anything. She was wrong. That summer, I sold our car, our television, our stereo..."
Like Lou Holtz sometimes we are on the top. Sometimes we are on the bottom, but no matter where we are in life God is only a prayer away.
For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous
and his ears are attentive to their prayer,
but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil."
-1 Peter 3:12 (New International Version)
Dear Lord and Heavenly Father, you are always there when we call. May we always work to be close to you. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
