“Give thanks to the LORD, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done.” – 1 Chronicles 16:8
On Tuesday, November 2, 2021, the Atlanta Braves won the World Series when shortstop Dansby Swanson fielded the final out on a ground ball that he tossed to the first baseman. Earlier in the game, Dansby had delivered a two-run home run to help the Braves win.
Dansby had asked Christ in his life as a child, but he learned to trust in Him as a professional baseball player through a bible study.
He said he felt more connected to God and to God’s calling. “I really was embracing who He had made me to be,” he said. As he grew spiritually, Dansby says he began to trust God more and put his worries into God’s hands.
“The good Lord, He’s blessed me so much. I wouldn’t be here without Him. Just the peace that He gives me, it’s remarkable. Especially in moments like this, you can never go wrong trusting in that. I’m just so thankful to be here.”
Has the Lord been working in your life? Then praise Him and thank Him. Today in prayer, praise Jesus for His lovingkindness toward you.
“A simple grateful thought turned heavenwards is the most perfect prayer.” - Gotthold Ephraim Lessing
God’s Word: “Give praise to the LORD, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done.” – Psalm 105:1
