Scott Hamilton – A Grateful Heart Video provided by: I Am Second

Thy Kingdom come. Thy Will be done. On earth, as it is in Heaven. When His followers asked Him about prayer, Jesus instructed His disciples to  pray for the Father’s Will to be done. If the Father’s Will were to be a picture-perfect life free of hardship and pain, praying for His will is as easy as saying, ‘Amen’. But, what if His Will turns out to be like a roller coaster ride of extreme highs and lows? What if the Father’s plan for your life included moments of Olympic glory coupled with moments fear, and excruciating physical and emotional pain?

At some point in his life, Olympic Gold Medalist Scott Hamilton felt satisfied with his career accomplishments. It wasn’t until he faced death twice that he began to wrestle with the true purpose for his life. There is no doubt that he has faced his own ups and downs; yet, when asked about what he prays about, Scott discussed having a grateful heart. Despite being drained physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually, in his heart, all he wanted to do is say: thank you. Even still, a heartfelt conversation with a nurse opened his eyes to the true meaning of being a Father.

Scott’s outlook on his life surpasses human rationality. Despite the storms he has weathered, he still says that “the only true disability in life is a bad attitude.” He had so much to lose; and yet, even more to give.

    Thank You Scott for sharing your story. How often we try to put on a good front for others while battling the unseen things. Prayer changes things and this video is going to help many others to pray bolder to our Father in heaven. A grateful heart in the midst of dispare paves a way for God to do the unthinkable so long as we have Faith and pray. Amen
