Ain’t Got It

Psalms 63:8 My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me. Sometimes we just don't have "it", whatever "it" may be. We can't make a putt, find a fairway or even have the feeling to know how to grip a club. The same is true with a runner or a participant in any…

Both Dry And Wet

Psalm 63:1,8 (A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah.) O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me. In…

Assuming 18

James 4:14-15 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that. When we start off on the first hole, we have…

A Slow Down

Ephesians 4:17 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, Golf carts did not become a common way to transverse the course until the 1950's. A 1930 Popular Mechanic article was written about their usage by a certain "crippled"…

Contagious

Philippians 2:14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings. Attitudes are contagious. When a person criticizes the status of a course, all those who are in earshot are automatically turned off to playing the course anytime soon. The last couple years I was convinced one of our local courses was a little more than a…

Groundhog Season

I Kings 1:1 Now king David was old andstricken in years; and they covered him with clothes, but he gat no heat. Throughout the months of January and February, it seems like the realities of the winter hit harder for everyone. The excitement of the holidays, seeing a snowflake, and spending extra time with the family…

The Difference

2 Thessalonians 2:13 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth. One is the biggest differentials between the game of a good amateur and a Tour…

Must Be Love

Acts 21:13 Then Paul answered, What mean ye to weep and to break mine heart? for I am ready not to be bound only, but also to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus. "Love" makes us act in ways we have never before contemplated. Bob McDill wrote and Alan Jackson recorded…

Send Me Roses Now

Galatians 6:17 From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus. Remember the last time you were in the middle of a round that went so bad you though life could not possibly get any worse. We quickly realized when we got home that it…

Rea$on To Care

Ephesians 6:24 Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen. A golfer posted a $100 reward at one of the local courses for his lost Scotty Cameron putter. The purpose of a reward interestingly is to incite interest in an otherwise unwilling or uncaring person. There wouldn't be much interest in…
