Too timid to be in the minor leagues if they're trying to walk were the and they know that it was a little bit later on. In your life when you accepted Jesus Christ your personal savior but those days. In the minor leagues met there's a lot of it a lot of distractions. Lotta temptation when you're in in in the minors correct. Yeah I mean ninety. I was in the major leagues when like in the credit goes a little later than life. They don't get to eighteen.

Pastor do his research to show there's read a number of articles about Gavin Floyd and in. I dread one and then I'd rather the sect when concluded down rather third one here is a quote that that really jumped off the beach from me. And it seemed like it's like him and our twins have to tell him yet. He said this Gavin Floyd ended up isolated myself from the guys she used to hang out with and trying not to do what they used to do with them. I was become an affair seat for some reason I felt like when that field I lost myself patient. And then all I'm getting back and get back and focusing prayer and then I'd mess up again. United this week of my shoulders about tried to perform forgot I was trying to. Be perfect but that couldn't do it. And on our intelligence had I've read that and I read it again. And I've literally took the article made a copy went right back to the guy that yogurt station. Because I have are prior. We're just having this conversation and I said are you need to read this. Because Gavin Floyd I. I don't think I could ever his fastball maybe his curve it beyond what but I kept David Pryor like. Twist yet I'm only kidding with that I was talked this kind of smacked in any time please understand when when I read that you could throw it 95 or 93. You'd have to hate it create he slow for me to pick up the idea that's. So that oh that quote from him. Just it just resonated perfect wins with what I was going through while specially when I was really just dirty might walk. On as adverse you know with the lord yeah. When Janet island eat you. You know lawyer programs and bound and it's unlike any thing then that I know of in the country where we. Are able to us to talk to men like yourself Gavin who. Can I can tell us really how your journey of faith began you know coming Jesus says you must be born again John the ban to skip preach in the same message and I hear some anti fuel willow I'm always I'm always been a Christian. And yet now know it or not always Christian who we we need to counted to the savior and that's our journey how it begins as a Gavin. We'd love for you go to shareware this. Your story how that took place in your life. I think god I'm on the third. Meego partner. And trying to just. Acknowledge it and and and so surrendered soon but I at Bolton and welcome. You know hardships in baseball I think really I had baseball but I ID program. On a pedestal wanna spend. Before anything else than when I was getting Brockton and I was so. I below you know not sure what what might lose you know what is all done and you know what about it you know to always be questions and I kind of opened up. A lot sir around. Forgot. And start acting that was the question you know this. And I remember reading book a couple of books likely Robles. It right then. And I would call sacred journey links so utopia. And in 11 that when you heard that comment in that quote. One book called the cure. That really. Changed from performance degrades those displayed. I mean talk about week not to short illuminating but. God is so good and they display. There's a rejoices. The praise when it knows when I realized. That wasn't about me it was about what he's done you know on. We went out coming through baseball troubles. I got traded the White Sox then. And I did have an opportunity to to compete for a spot and I was able to. In a bigger a little bit out baseball and for the income came under censorship of making less than. The White Sox and in Scott Linebrink two's. It was an open guy you really aren't. You'd like hey you wanna get together and just do it did devotional you know and it sure he knows also opened two dollars and out of my own. Surging inside and in the house but all in. You know it it it and when you come to. We read and and and listen and and knowing nemesis and you in Ike into like that intellectual vote of the there's a lot of evidence here. You know and then he's reeling and what happened was real and when I came deposition. You know obviously. I think it's not ever and I look everybody gets to this point but you almost feel like you know. He's you know a priest or pastor note you know at certain you know. And you're like man I gotta be I got beat them you know I mean I'm gonna have this late. And needing some respect comes on and all of the light only to me also and I I tried to. I mean you do buy because the jesus' name but it but it. Eight indicated part of the life long process. Absolutely pictures. And a no obviously city year ride on were in Romans right now and it's three chapters that are about saint station that's really. Chip out the central edges of my life now is his child and a year absolutely right we do television as joint did you have any church background when you were growing up at all with you with your family here. I would say it was more late you know column on holidays ago. Christmas and stir this can't anchor. These are maybe a couple times in between you know they got a got a better like rhythm. Problem. We didn't practiced that Thursday no problem was more about being good people. And or you know. Does doing things right. Of juniper order. You know it was in the loving of loving family but we and I went appetite school. And I column but that. They had you know subtle influences as far as you know to being around it it's easy song on thing convenient and you know. Bible being taught the little Burton you know up. I had a little bit influence but not. I went. There has like com. I didn't know how to relieve walker in that order would that look like. What well at times you don't even like when then Mel Gibson came out with a passion of Christ. You know you and you you see the historical. Evidence of what he did the you know hey what he did on the cross and yet you come away from that you go. Whoa why did he do it now I mean distance like it never quite comes out. And Booth and so. You know people can can have I had knowledge of who Jesus is or what the Bible says I know Mike you talked about it before but. Kansas' head knowledge. It is isn't the answer that's not the face because you know I Kimberly I assembly and Abraham Lincoln and George Washington and and that that's not really making any changes. I that you know they talked to we had some Odeon said look I knew Jesus Christ. I knew him the same way I knew Abraham Lincoln yeah I knew all the stories I just didn't know him personally now at all yeah. If so. What at what point in Newton with the baseball when it kinda hit did you say man I am searching for an answer here and then. In his sounds like maybe it was in Chicago with the coaches that youth you said man I I wanna know Jesus personally invite him in in my life is that is that how that happened or when did that exactly happened. You know good recovery over a couple years but I would they'll with the cylinder I'm reading books and stuff and rate when I got treated I started really are. Seeking you know late let. You know put in my you know are we here. In the you know who is guiding knoller. You know what my future look Laker you know a lot of you know. So there's questions about the same time you know a lot of good questions to. What we don't know one thing the title is pretty clear on is if god says if you seek me you'll find me. Assembly this exactly what was taken place in your life. It was to look back you know you look at how god bring people and and even messages and and you know maybe it's all or some like that and Ebert I mean. He's bringing so much stick condoms will lead you along and when I. Problem into the White Sox I had Mickey let some of the chaplain for the White Sox and Scott Linebrink the big helped me in the knowledge of god. And and Nicky tell me. Tremendously will lift my spiritual walk but I didn't realize. My. Need first the year until like I tried to be my leader you know so I try to eat whole or try to. Try to fight the fight by the bootstraps you know. And realized yeah I had. You know. It's impossible I mean it's impossible to. Salute. That light by herself and and when I read that book it's your own. And I read Romans about justification. And it all came together and in saint indication that it all came together and I got. And I was just like you know I'd I need you any YouTube. Do and I I need you to help I need help and and and I I sold got work what I like go. There was. Very powerful you know when you when you little you know a certain amount in your life you know away from god. You know you try to be the person but you're still have a lot of I mean those choices that you Natan. They accumulate and eagle at the time C. The fact they have down the road. And when when I was trying to. You know I'm tangled as not being in incident masses. It was overwhelming for me and that's when I was like I introduce. I can't do it I need you and not. Received crisis and and it was late you know he is much bigger in. Given you mentioned some then you you know you said you're trying to do yourself and and and in the new city man blues here on blues here animals' sudden it's amazing how those sends Kessler mounting up. You know I try to tell people hey you know I'm a pretty good person. Let's say only send ten times today. Well at camp he's not listening to broadcast analysts and only chosen three times today uh huh I think you know I think you know I'm pretty good. You know maybe elegant manner one driver on the road today and or whatever might be a three cents on 365. Days of the year as well over a thousand. And a pilot to be seventy. My word I have 87085090000. Sends to my shame. And it only takes one send a separate me from guys so I mean we are desperate when god says hey I'm not lowering the standard down. You have to be perfect. And though you what you discovered was anathema senator. And Jesus is perfect and he is the one who paid for me to know I can live with you on one day. And and I does what when you said man in the sense candidates they seem. The kitten out now by the well. I know exactly what you don't know about you so how many how many in the end I grew up in a Catholic school as Walt Evan they totally carried that Bible don't open it will let you know what senate. But I grew up ticket oppose is too good kid. Had I thought this through 80000 since. How many old ladies drafting help walk it across is true with bags to cover 80000 San that's a bunch much obliged him right down. Pedro for an hour to break outlet though. I this this article that was in sports spectrum that they did with Gavin that I just and again we're targeting Gavin Floyd. Former Major League Baseball pitcher we get one more quote from him and after EE talked about though the book secure. And it and it says turns out god wasn't Floyd thought he wants. And this is quoting Gavin Floyd the book is very is smell in my life because they have learned that I was justified. In Christ. A huge play Pokemon. Whose enormous for me and I feel just. I know exactly how he's feeling. He loves me through the things I struggle with. I felt free to live feed free to live with him without condemnation. Guilt and shame. I guess I didn't understand the full gospel until meant justification. Is so deep. You read Rome or you're gonna love this past year and it's so rich justification it was like. I just that they keys take you think you'd get this done according Gavin Floyd I ID. This article from you there's 45. Differed parts were right you start to laugh and I was like.

I might figure alongside the head pastor at her side Baptist Church he's pastor can tell their our special guest former Major League Baseball pitcher. Gavin Floyd. Hey Kevin when we ended the last segment. Don't bet that quote for me and and and you we talked during the breaks in and said look I I haven't really thought of that article for awhile. But it's amazing how we choose it brings out two guys like me that when you win you you you when the light bulb goes on. And and you know that the board loves us through our struggles. It does is freezes stop catch it's freezes up from I you'd say. Look I am my favorite books a book infusions he try to put on the full body of farmer every day and sometimes you feel before Unita bad. And if I was back Peter young Christian I would get out of bed and and in my first sin would happen and I would think edges blew the whole deck. And he can't accept because judges and then once that light bulb went on for me and it sounds like for you was well. Boy it it just it frees you opted to live for him. It it's the amazing at you know I. When IA. Went through all this went from. You know to appraise you know I've prayed and those like almost like he. He wiped everything away and he liked radio and it doesn't like love me through my mistakes. And that point. I. Understand the way my it and I. Took my sin differently than before. It was lower than. You know. Free harder per day in Europe greet tickets at their news it was like man. Are you look at the picture of what you or the story of what you hear. You would do amazing line. Gruesome line who Saba and bad. I looked at sin we differ what I understood. How he just department. And up and everybody who will be. And AM com and then became. I looked at sin differently and I was able to understand these and that we talked to out of body armor they can not every day. And you know be prepared in. Because here talked about. Not just actions he talked about art is now. And that's the overwhelming when you try to sort of have your hardest hit return and possible seeing only by the grace of god. And and and you're on top you know physical issues or addictions or whatever it is that you it late. It's overwhelming so when. I understood the justification part it was it was a it was a joy on the news like celebration. And I looked at life. As an opportunity to hear him every very. Looked at my. My the club out differently. Oh I look at those guys that I alienated. Because I couldn't. Undue the simple way. And not be influenced by where I was told certain guys you know and I looked at those guys definitely is like you know malevolent you know because Christ's love me but those first on you know insurance. In the I looked through my lens changed completely you know. That's a great point that when you gave league pitcher lends. It I almost thought. That I have to avoid that not only in it and you'll get the women talked about it these charges that she had. But I've read the articles that are read the work of fiction came came up. And and I don't know if you're drinking or drug gonna ball but look I I was sort shamed by it. And I never wanted to really talk about them we asserted doing this show and I tried to really you know just kinda like on the surface maybe touch a little bit. And then I talked to pastor a tart some other guys. And they said look would you make that comment about some guys worst they've ever to lose to a candy bar and then the things that you've done if you're willing to talk about that. There guys that are so Alter struggling with the stuff they use to struggle with. And we can't you know us guys that the worst we reduce or we can are we can't go to those guys and see we know what you're going through. Put a guy like you if you're willing to open up and not be ashamed and not be embarrassed about your past life. You can reach some guys and I absolutely yeah I know there are some coaches. You know I got a bit about spoke coach for 36 years I know some of these guys and they've listened to show. And and I know that they know. And if they ever call me say let's talk about this is I know what used to be like yours ago. And I see you walk you will differ right now and I listen to you and the things your sand. Maj other Jews call me now have this conversation. Is I'm not ashamed to run and then she endure barest. It's what I was doing back then and then not do it anymore. Repayment and. And and and then there is also good that we need men like I needed and then like that. That would be open this year and and help who cares about them. And be like that you know. We're on the same boat here you know and no matter what we do you know what we are at our you know. We would have the solution and the relational crisis you know and how could walk through that would keep would command. From me were was crucial. That person. You know they did the theme music for the show pastor Borland Locke is is a pastor here in the city walk he. And did I'd there Zale line in the song that says I'm not the man I want to be but I think god I'm not the man I used to be. And we we use that music for that line for that specific wind because that I can't see it any better than that. I'm I'm not merely the man I wanna be. But boy I think god. Like every day and not the man I used to be and the guys eight can't and another quick question forget to break. We've had on some some some. You know former professional athletes that says look.
