“There is one explanation for why that ball went in and it’s because it was the Lord’s will for it to go in. Glory to God. What a day. You could give me 10 kicks from there and I don’t know if I could make one, honestly, in the weather and the cold and just kicking a frozen football.” –Ryan Succop after kicking the game winning field goal in the Tennessee Titans / Kansas City Chiefs game.
On the same day a Dallas Cowboy, Ezekiel Elliott jumped into a huge Salvation Army Red Kettle after running for a touchdown. Elliott said: “In warmups I saw it sitting there right by the end zone and I was like, man somebody’s got to jump in there. So I just had to do it.”
Cowboys owner, Jerry Jones, said: “The Salvation Army should give him the highest award.” As a Salvation Army officer, I agree. The name Ezekiel in Hebrew means God strengthens. Thank you, Ezekiel Elliott, for bringing national attention to our Kettles and strengthening our efforts to show people the love of God!
Both Ezekiel Elliott and Ryan Succop saw their opportunity to be used by God and jumped right into it! Perhaps you and I should do the same!
