Whenever a professional football player suffers a devastating injury, it can be hard to accept. All of the hard work that is put in to reach the level of starting NFL wide receiver is taken away in one second with an injury. But Chris Conley had a different message to share after the game.
Glory to God in our wins and our losses. He knows the plans he has for me.
“GLory to God in our wins and our losses. He knows the plans he has for me.”
This message to praise God despite winning or losing is something Conley has adopted throughout this season, but this post was especially poignant because it came right after he suffered a season-ending injury.
Glory to God in our wins and our losses. His grace is more than enough.
Conley is a follower of Jesus Christ, and says on his twitter page that he is a “lover of Christ” with the Bible verse Romans 1:16 listed, which reads “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.”
Selected in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft, Conley played sparingly in his rookie season, but in 2016, he became an integral part of the Chiefs’ offense catching 44 passes for 530 receiving yards. In 2017, Conley won the starting job as the second wide receiver and helped his team to a 5-0 start before the injury Sunday Night ended the season.
