Trust Your Ball

The other day Elder Davis and I were visiting with a family in our area. The older gentleman that we were conversing with had recently played a game or two of bowling. Actually, he regularly gets together with some friends and plays a couple of frames. Anyhow, as he talked he said something that really stuck out to me. He said something to the effect of, "You've just got to trust your ball."

What I got from this was that after you've thrown your ball there really isn't anything you can do. You've just got to trust it. It's kind of like our trust in Jesus Christ. Nephi said, ". . . for we know that it is by grace that we are saved, after all we can do."1 When we do everything in our power to repent and become better we must trust Christ. And the great thing about having Christ on our team is that we will always get a strike!
