What would happen if you went into every round remembering this. What would happen if I went into every round remembering this. I know for a fact that I would NOT fail. I will NOT have concerns. I will NOT be worried about my outcome. I will NOT be scared. I will accept the outcome (whatever it may be), because I know that God will not lead me astray. I know He has me on the path to victory. A victory that I may not know yet, but a victory that is MINE. A victory that He has given just for me. We all have our own victory that He is guiding us and leading us too. It is our choice to take a ride on this path. And I am happily aboard. This path is my Victory. Being lead by someone who was willing to die for me, that loves me unconditionally, that forgives me for my wrongdoing - why would I ever want to be anywhere else. My victory is God. My victory is eternal life. That in itself is peace. And we are extremely blessed to receive such a wonderful blessing.
Now I know no one ever expects to hit a bad shot, but no one ever expects to hit a good shot and get a horrible break out of it either. The unexpected happens when we least expect it. I’m the master of the obvious aren’t I. But how many times have you hit a great drive down the middle of the fairway and ended up in a divot. Or hit the pin and have it shoot off the green into the water. That is the unexpected. You never expect those shots to occur, and when they do - what do you do? Panic mode sets. Emotionally you fall apart. And you start to rush things. Or I do at least. How many of us know this is exactly what you cannot do, but when you are put in this moment, it just naturally occurs. That is normal. It happens to everyone. Now you just need a way to remind yourself that the unexpected happens, and God already knew that it was going to happen, and guess what. He has equipped you with what you need to deal with the unexpected. It isn’t a surprise to God, so it shouldn’t be a surprise to you. It should be a blessing. It is apart of your plan, and you got to see the next part - whether that be lying perfectly in the middle of the fairway - or perfectly in the middle of a divot in the middle of the fairway - that was part of your plan, and slowly it is being revealed to you.
