Sometimes You Have to Punt

In football, sometimes a team has to punt. Whether it’s the timing, field position or they just can’t find a rhythm, there are moments when the best option means punting.

Punting gives the offense a chance to leave the field and regroup, reevaluate their strategy, catch their breath and collect their thoughts.

Teams send punters out, trusting them to get the ball as far down the field as possible; maximizing the distance the receiving team must advance to score.

Teams send their defense out, trusting them to shut down their opponent.

Teams send their offense back out, trusting they will do better this time.

And they win the game.

In life, sometimes you have to punt. Whether it’s the timing, unforeseen circumstances or you just can’t find a rhythm, there are moments when the best option means punting.

Punting gives you a chance to regroup, reevaluate your strategy, catch your breath and collect your thoughts.

You trust your family, friends and co-workers to take care of business until you get back out there.

You trust God has your back and will hold the space for you.

You go back out, trusting this time, you will do better.

And then you win the game.
