The Final Whistle

I watched a local soccer match in a school playground. As I sat down, I asked one of the boys what the score was.

With a smile, he replied; “They are leading us 3-0”!

And I said, REALLY!!

I told him, “you don’t look discouraged

“Discouraged?” the boy asked with a puzzled look

“Why should I be discouraged when the referee has not blown the final whistle?”

“I have confidence in the team and the managers; we shall definitely overcome!”
Truly, the match finally ended 5-4 in favour of the boy’s team!

He waved at me gently, with a beautiful smile as he left. I was amazed, mouth wide open;

Such confidence;
Such beautiful faith;
Such a small boy?

As I got back home that night, his question kept coming back to me: “Why should I be discouraged when the referee has not blown the final whistle?”

Life is like a game.

Why should you be discouraged when The Almighty God is your Manager? Why should you be discouraged, whilst there’s still life?
Why should you be discouraged when your final whistle has not sounded?

The truth is that many people blow the final whistle themselves;

But as long as there is life, nothing is impossible and it is never too late for you.
Half time is not full time and His calendar for your life is not man’s calendar.
Don’t blow the final whistle yourself.
Be encouraged! Don’t ever give up.
With God, all things are still possible!

  1. The faith of children is spoken so many times……
    Out of the mouth of babes thou hast perfected praise. We can learn alot from children. The day will come when the final trump is blown, but in the mean time we must use our time wisely. Very good writing here. Be Blessed.
