Our lives and our years are scripted by God. Unfortunately, we tend to go “off message” and unscripted and then must return and repent and rely again on the Almighty to direct us. The Director of our souls can make us up and write for us a new and novel original score that we can sing for Him.
God is the best Director. But we need to memorize our lines. And our lines are His Words, because He wrote the best original screenplay ever. It’s been called the Greatest Story Ever Told. And so all of us could earn an Oscar for the roles we’ve played and mistakes we’ve made and the prayers we’ve prayed that were answered in dramatic fashion.
So, as the Oscars approach, let’s focus on what matters, and that is winning “An Oscar” for Him.

“Best Original Screenplay/ Best Picture”
Much like the movies, certain games or seasons seem to follow the same old narrative and make us feel like we’re watching a rerun. Sometimes however, we’re shocked by a particular story line or plot point that arises during the year and it reminds us that life and sports can surprise us and prove to be stranger than fiction.
Here are the nominees…

Michael Sam’s NFL Journey
Super Bowl XLIX
Brazil vs. Germany World Cup Semi-Final
And the Oscar goes to… Super Bowl XLIX
The finale to the Super Bowl was one of those moments that you just cannot script. The dramatic drive to greatness by Tom Brady, the obscure corner back making the game-ending play, the mind-boggling decision, the last-minute fisticuffs – it was all just unbelievable. Seriously, the finale was so implausible that if someone pitched it to you as a movie, you would have ordered a psych evaluation and asked them to leave immediately.
And by the way, the best sports movie of all time was, of course, Hoosiers.
