I just finished reading Quiet Strength by Tony Dungy, head coach of the Indianapolis Colts. If you want an inspiring message I strongly encourage you to read this book. Coach Dungy is an exceptional man. I say this not because of what he has done on the football field, but rather because of his faith and his accomplishments off the field. If someone were to ask me to name a great man of God living today, I would have to place Tony Dungy in that category. I have such a great respect for who he is and what he has done. Reading the book solidified that respect. One of the greatest themes he expresses throughout the book is the importance of staying the course. No matter the circumstances, good or bad, God is leading us down that path for a reason, and we need to stay focused on where He is leading us. Here is a man who learned to trust God in every situation in his life.
I have included a video in which Coach Dungy tells a story about a turning point in his faith. This is one of many videos available on the web in which he shares his faith. I would encourage you to check out more of them for some very inspirational speeches.
