First and Goal (Paperback) (Jake Byrne)
about this item
Jake Byrne dreamed of playing professional football. He had the size, the talent, the drive...but at age 14, he found out he also had type 1 diabetes.
Still, Jake was determined to reach his goal. And God was determined to guide and empower him all along the way.
Jake's journey to the NFL is the backdrop for this collection of inspiring devotions based on nearly a hundred football terms. Jake takes you to the weight room, practice field, and even across the goal line. You'll feel as if you're lined up next to him, facing a very large defender you're about to take down. He also includes Scripture and then ties up each story in a way that feels real and encouraging. You'll discover...
- what to do when God calls an audible in your life
- how to respond when God puts you on special teams
- why prayer is never an incomplete pass
These quick daily readings will help you press through your own difficulties and experience God's dream for you.
