Blessings at basketball tryouts

I have attended a Christian Science Sunday School since I was a little kid. Sunday School helps me in my life, and I love what I learn there. I have come to always rely on God to help me no matter what problem arises. I play football, basketball, and baseball, and love each of these sports. I’ve had some wonderful experiences with my teams, and I’ve found many opportunities to use my understanding of Christian Science and my relationship with God.

I had a nice experience in my high school basketball tryouts. Basketball is a sport I’ve always excelled in, and I have been on very competitive teams. When I came to high school, I felt a little nervous about the tryouts because the coaches didn’t know me as well, and I felt the need to impress them. I played hard, but the first day of tryouts my shot was off and I was struggling. I kept working hard and giving it my best, excelling in some areas but still having no success shooting the ball. When I got home that night, I was upset and feeling frustrated. I decided to pray with some of the things I’d learned in Sunday School.
