would be right back with Kurt in the lockeroom after this message. But
Kurt never appeared. Instead, the newscaster awkwardly explained that

"You want to say, 'God, how could You allow this to happen?'" he
said. "I thought I was over the fact of being a backup. It was such a
shock, but God has allowed me to use this greater platform for Him.
"If you can stand up for your faith when you're on top, you can
stand up for it now that you're at the bottom." "

Kurt, all of heaven is applauding. Take courage. God said it would
get very dark before the end times, and it is. But because of the
Light of Christ that you shine, it has been like a lighthouse over a
dark black ocean. May God bless you and comfort you, may His face
shine upon you as you carry this torch. You are an eternal MVP
in a much bigger game. Whatever happens here on earth, there is a
party in heaven just waiting for you.
Come quickly, Lord Jesus.
