Jeremy Lin has admitted that he has had one of the toughest seasons of his basketball career but now vows to find joy in God despite his circumstances.
Lin, the 26-year-old Los Angeles Lakers guard, took to his personal website www.jlin7.com to admit that he was disappointed in his season. Still, the Christian athlete acknowledged that God was present during his trials.
“At times, it has felt like the barriers were insurmountable or that I was powerless to control things around me,” Lin wrote. “From a basketball standpoint, I’m obviously disappointed, but God is always working — even through life’s struggles and disappointments.”
He admitted to feeling challenges with finding joy in his circumstances.
“There have been many times this past season where I was filled with frustration, many situations where I felt overwhelmed and many nights where I couldn’t sleep much because I was thinking about the game,” Lin wrote. “But through it all, I’ve been learning how to surrender the results to God, how to walk by faith and not by sight, how to be renewed through times of prayer/Scripture and how to fight for a life of joy in the midst of trials.”
