God Has Faith In You
Anthony Holyfield first made his mark in Hawaii as one of the stars of UH Football under coach Dick Tomey. His exploits as an athlete were so pronounced that he made it to the NFL and played for the San Francisco 49ers. His life was on the fast track of success when he encountered one set-back, which led to other set-backs. He tells how with Christ’s help, those set-backs have been turned into come-backs. So much so, it has positively impacted his future, his family and all the people who know him. He ministers at Grace Bible Church, is a coach, professional musician and artist. He is married to Nobuko (basketball player) and has three sons Anthony (Roosevelt/APU), Lucion (UH Lab/UH), Marcus (Mid-Pac/SMU).
Edwin Louis Cole once said, “Have faith in God; God has faith in you.” Every one of us, at some time in our lives, need someone who believes in us. Someone like a parent, or coach, or mentor and friend, who can express the good things and the possibilities they see in us. Thank God for those people. Thank God, also, that he has given certain individuals a very expansive capacity to do that for many people. Anthony Holyfield is one of those “Life Expanders.” He has been an encouragement to me and I know he will be an encouragement to you, too.
