At the close of each sports season, Cornerstone recognizes and celebrates the seniors who have contributed much to the team and to building the CPA sports program.
During the recognition of each individual senior player, the audience is privileged to hear a selected Bible verse that has special meaning to the student. Listening to these verses is an encouragement that CPA has, in partnership with parents, had a small part in shaping a firm foundation of Words to Live By in the lives of these students who will soon be moving on to life’s next adventure outside of the influence of these school walls.
I hope you are encouraged by the verses shared by CPA’s senior winter sport athletes:
My flesh and and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. Psalm 73:26 (Katie Richardson, Competition Cheer Squad)
The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him and He helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise Him. Psalm 28:7 (Lillian Cook, Competition Cheer Squad)
Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you. Deuteronomy 31:6 (Madison Locke, Sideline Cheer Squad)
I have fought the good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. 2 Timothy 4:7 (Miriam Donovan, Girls Basketball)
I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13 (J.T. Snyder, Varsity Basketball)
For me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. Philippians 1:21 (Scott Everill, Varsity Basketball)
Proverbs 2:6 says, For the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth comes knowledge and understanding. It is our prayer for these and all the members of the senior class that God’s Word will be planted deeply into their heart and that they will lean on Him to find the wisdom and understanding so needed in life’s journey.
