'Rock the ice!'

I play many sports, but ice hockey is definitely my favorite. I’m in fourth grade and have played hockey for six years. Last spring I wanted to join a very competitive hockey program. This program had tryouts lasting for three nights. 

When I found out I would miss the first night because of a school trip, I was bummed. But my dad and I prayed. We talked about how God loves us so much. God totally governs our lives, and God would never let us miss out on anything good. 

I was really grateful when the hockey coaches said that going on the class trip wouldn’t hurt my chances of getting a spot on a team. On the second night of the tryouts (my first night), I had a good attitude, thinking everything would be all right. But after we got off the ice and the coaches put up team lists, a lot of kids, including me, were not on any team yet. Some kids and parents were disappointed and mad. But you know what? I felt fine.
