Jeremy Lin News: Injuries Are Godly Lessons About Gratitude, Humility
After suffering from two separate hamstring injuries that have kept him on the sidelines for much of the season, Jeremy Lin is choosing to focus on what God is teaching him from the setbacks.
Lin, the 28-year-old guard who was signed to the Brooklyn Nets last year, hasn't had the opportunity to play up to his full potential after missing 17 games due to a hamstring injury he suffered on Nov. 2. Then, on Dec. 26, Lin was sidelined again after he injured his left hamstring.
Now, the Christian NBA star is leaning on God during the tough time. According to Lin, God's been teaching him about gratitude and humility through his physical trials.
"Thank you for everyone's support and prayers! Not gonna lie, this season's been very painful physically, mentally and emotionally, not being able to battle with my crew night in night out," Lin wrote on Instagram late last week. "But God's been teaching me a lot about gratitude for the little things, full surrender of my greatest dreams, humility in service to my teammates and trust in His perfect timing. I'm working extremely hard to get right again ... thanks again for the love!"
