81. Controlling the Uncontrollables | Cairn University Athletes Chapel

In our latest episode, Mackey is live at Cairn University’s athletes chapel talking identity.

The minute that you find your identity in what you do instead of who you are, you fail. You will never find success in what you do because one day, what you do will stop, and you’ll have to hangup your cleats in whatever areas or whatever abilities you’ve been dependent on.

Mackey shares the common misconception that most of us have of thinking we can control everything. We try to control things at the detriment of our own lives. How many of us try to hold onto things as life is spinning out of control? We are so bullish and so convinced that we can do it that we are blind to the help that others want to provide.

Mackey tells the story of the man who asks Jesus, “What must I do to inherit eternal life?” He explains Jesus’ response and leads us back to the idea that God loves us too much to not let us be our best. God will sometimes call you out. God will sometimes say “not yet” when we want something really bad. In the book of Job, Job cries out to God asking him where He was while everything was being stripped of him, and God tells him that He sees far greater than the human mind can understand. He looks ahead, and his mind isn’t fixed on the present.
