A popular movie some years ago was an entertaining film based on the female major-league baseball teams of the 1940’s, A League of Their Own.
In one of the most powerful scenes in the movie, the star catcher of the Rockford Peaches, played by Geena Davis, threatens to quit. She’s tired; she’s warn out; she’s worried about her husband who has gone to war; and in a low moment, she is ready to “throw in the towel.”
This star catcher, by far the best player in the league, complains that the game is just “too hard.” The manager of the Rockford Peaches, played by Tom Hanks, tries to talk her out of quitting.
When she says, “It’s too hard,” he replies, “Well, baseball’s supposed to be hard…..If it weren’t hard, everybody would do it.” And then he says this: “Hard is what makes it great!”
The same thing could be said about our lives as Christians: “Hard is what makes it great!”

What is hard about YOUR life as a Christian? Has YOUR life as a Christian made YOU great in the eyes of God?
TEARS ARE PRAYERS TOO. THEY TRAVEL TO GOD WHEN WE CAN’T SPEAK!!
