We were designed to
have a lasting impact on
eternity. Everyone will die, but
few people will ever truly live.
To live like a Centurion,
to live with honor before God
and others, to live with
commitment to principle, to live
with dedication to a cause, to
live with compassion for others,
is to live in a way that will
echo in eternity.

Who are you when life is steady?
Who are you when storms come?
Most of us have been on the receiving
end of rejection, a broken dream, or
heartbreak. And while this is not an
easy space to go through, when we are
grounded in the truth, we can endure
the tough times.
In this powerful series, Heisman
Trophy winner Tim Tebow passionately
shares glimpses of his journey staying
grounded in the face of
disappointment, criticism, and intense
media scrutiny. Following an
exceptional college football career
with the Florida Gators and a
promising playoff run with the Denver
Broncos, Tebow was traded to the New
York Jets. He was released after one
Tebow talks about what he's learned
along the way, building confidence in
his identity in God, not the world.
This moving series features practical
wisdom from Scripture and insights
gained from others who have impacted
Tebow in life-changing ways.

He shielded him

the apple of his eye. Deuteronomy
“God is like an
eyelid,” my friend Ryley said, and I
blinked in surprise. What could she
mean by that?
“Tell me more,” I
replied. Together, we had been
studying surprising pictures of God in
the Bible, things like God as a
laboring mother (Isa. 42:14) or as a
beekeeper (7:18), but this one was new
to me. Ryley pointed me to Deuteronomy
32, where Moses praises the way God
takes care of His people. Verse 10
says that God shields and protects His
people, guarding them “as the apple of
But the word we
translate apple, Ryley told me,
literally means pupil. And what
encircles and guards the pupil? The
eyelid, of course! God is like the
eyelid, which instinctively protects
the tender eye. The eyelid guards the
eye from danger, and by blinking helps
remove dirt or dust. It keeps sweat
out of the eye. It lubricates the

guarding us just as the eyelid guards

sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one
of them will fall to the ground
outside your Father’s care. . . . You
are worth more than many sparrows”
(Matt. 10:29–31; Luke 12:1–6).
In what situation do you need to
remember that God protects and
provides? How can you remind yourself
and others of our worth in God’s eyes?

"And if it seems evil
to you to serve the Lord, choose
for yourselves this day whom you
will serve, whether the gods
which your fathers served that
were on the other side of the
River, or the gods of the
Amorites, in whose land you
dwell. But as for me and my
house, we will serve the Lord."
