“Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can’t Lose.”
I love that quote. You may know where this phrase originates, but if not, it is from the show Friday Night Lights. The title of the show says a lot and one could probably guesstimate what the synopsis is, and you would be right by saying football.
Through the show, the coach closes almost every pep talk with players by saying this particular phrase. It boosts them up and gets them focused. Which is why I love it. I’m not the first “blogger” to write on the motto and I won’t be the last. I write about it because I see the overflow into the spiritual journey we are on.
We need to have those clear eyes, staying focused on the mission, not letting our sight be blurred from worldly things. You understand the mission and you go out there and do it because you need to, have to, want to. When you have clears eyes and full hearts, you can’t lose. It may seem like you lost a battle but the war isn’t over.
The Central Church of Christ is about to go on a mission. Heading to the country of Panama to spread the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, the job must be completed. We have clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose.
Pray for all the members of the team: from teens, Tide 4 Christ Students, medical personnel, and ministers.
Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
Share in suffering as a good soldier of Christ Jesus. No soldier gets entangled in civilian pursuits, since his aim is to please the one who enlisted him.
2 Tim. 2:3-4
