Trusting Your Way to Victory

Bob Buford grew up in East Texas. He attended the University of Texas and earned an MBA from Harvard. Bob transformed his family’s Tyler, Texas television station into a national cable system that made a ton of money.
 
Bob’s only child was named Ross. At age 24, this bright and winsome young man drowned on the Rio Grande River. Bob called his son’s tragic death the equivalent of a “rogue wave crashing into our lifeboat.” As Bob struggled to deal with Ross’s death, a friend posed the question,” What do you have in your emotional tool box that can help you navigate this time of deep grief? Bob thought deeply about the emotional resources in his metaphorical tool box and made a profound observation. Bob acknowledged that he had INTELLIGENCE in his tool box but he could not thinkhis way out of his son’s death. He had WEALTH in his tool box but he could not buyhis way out of his son’s death. He had COMMUNICATION SKILLS in his tool box but he could not talk his way out of his son’s death. Most importantly, he had FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST in his tool box and he correctly concluded that he must trust his way through his son’s death.
 
Growing from the navigation of his grief and the re-evaluation of his life, Bob wrote a book entitled “Halftime: Moving from Success to Significance.” Essentially, he compares life to a football game where you go into the locker room at half time and adjust the game plan for the second half to achieve a better outcome.
 
Perhaps you feel like you are getting clobbered by adversity and it is time to check into God’s locker room and adjust your game plan. Your greatest asset is FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST! At half time intentionally activate Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path.” 
 
Getting God’s help in the locker room of prayer and surrender will enable you to TRUST YOUR WAY through the second half and find the Lord’s fulfillment and Victory!
