Can a hero join you on the sidelines? Yesterday I was watching a movie called Abel’s Field and a few thoughts have come to me. Sometimes the person that understands your struggles and challenges and inspires you has struggles and challenges you know nothing about. When others dwell on the problems with you this special hero sees and expresses the potential that you have on the inside. This person cheers you while silently screaming for a release in their own life.
Being on the sidelines has its grand opportunities. That’s where character is developed. A hero comes in many forms including a handpicked stranger crossing your paths. It may even seem like you’ve known them forever. At times you may question yourself as to why that moment with them felt so meaningful to you. God moves and works through his creation. He can cause the slightest act to bring a movement of change. That person God works through may or may not even know why they are doing it, but what’s most important is that God is watching out for you and He’ll do whatever it takes to bring out the best in you.
Do you have someone who you consider a sideline hero? Are you a sideline hero? Is there someone you can pour into even though your life looks like a hurricane? It’s those little moments that are really HUGE moments that God uses an individual or group of people to bring hope and healing in a very hurting world.
