Chicago Cubs rookie Kris Bryant had an interesting game on Wednesday, September 3rd. Bryant hit a two-run home run in the eighth inning that tied the game against the Cincinnati Reds. The very next inning, Bryant made an error with 2 outs that allowed the Reds to go on and win the game 7-4.
Bryant commented, “You’re on cloud nine when you hit a game-tying home run, and then you blow it the next inning. Sometimes baseball works that way. It’s a crazy game. It gives you everything and it takes everything away.”
You don’t have to be a professional baseball player to understand that life is like a roller coaster ride. There are joyful highs and painful lows, and sometimes they come amazingly close to one another. All we can do is buckle up and trust the Lord on this exciting ride of following Jesus!
