Pondering Thought of the Week : Tebow – dedicated to Tim Tebow

It’s real fun to watch how frustrated the media is and how most people are taken back to Tim Tebow.   Thought I would pass along a story describing Tebow in yet another way, a Poem comparing his story to Exodus 7-12.  The miracles are one thing, the main point is how Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, much like the media and analysts today.  One day God will close the door, who knows when that is, for now I’m on Tebow’s side.


Exodus 7-12

Story Behind the Story
Tim Tebow during his second year playing for the Denver Broncos, an NFL team playing American football, were 1-4 (1 win 4 losses). Tim was made a starter and as of this writing won 7 games in a row. The passage of scripture that comes to mind was how Pharaoh’s heart was hardened when the Israelites tried to leave Egypt.  The more miracles God performed through Moses, the harder Pharaoh’s heart became.  This illustration is similar to the worlds reaction to Tebow over the last couple weeks.  At first, Tebow didn’t have the right throwing motion, all he could do was run.   He was part of a few come from behind wins, this baffled the “so called experts”.  As he continued to win, the critics started saying “they don’t know where it comes from”.  I’m screaming at the TV, it’s Jesus silly!  He has an upcoming game against one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL and one of the best all time, Tom Brady.  I don’t know how the story goes, but I’m passing this along to document what is on my heart.

There was once a person named Tebow
This was his last name

Then one day reading an article
Tebow became a verb to describe something

The NCAA prohibits players from showing scripture on eye patches
It is commonly referred to as the “Tebow Rule”

So there you have it, Tebow is a verb
It describes things

Described in Gods word
Was an event where his chosen people were in bondage

They cried out for his help
God answered with a messenger, his name was Moses

When Moses approached the Pharaoh
To ask for him to release his people

Pharaoh refused to let the Israelites go
God knew this already and had a few tricks up his sleeve

They are called the 10 Plagues
One miracle after another

Pharaoh at first could explain some of the miracles and his magicians could do them also
As time went on, he couldn’t explain them all

Much like Tebow has done, performed a few miracles
With the help of others, this time it’s the Defense, Special Teams and coaches

The reaction of the media, analysts and critics
At first, they say Tebow couldn’t do this or that

Moses cried to God he couldn’t talk to Pharaoh
So after a while, God answered with having Aaron speak on behalf of Moses

Even though God said all Moses had to do was show up
God would give him the right words to say

During this whole situation with Tebow
He has remained humble and let his play speak for itself

Tebow has given credit to everyone else for his accomplishments
Which the good book says all good things come from God

Tebow knows this and says accordingly
His actions baffles the media and almost everyone else around

In the end, after 10 miracles, Pharaoh gave in and let Moses and his people go
Tebow’s story isn’t as dramatic as Moses or life changing

Tebow’s is just a football game
In a few years, only a few will remember the magic

Unlike Moses and his story,
We don’t know the end to Tebow’s story

We will have to wait and see
God has shown his presence every step of the way

I’m sure the ending will have more people believing
Some will remain skeptical

I for one see the comparison
God has his hand in both stories and his “will” will be done!

God Bless
