Having followed Cardiff City for years, I’ve experienced many highs and lows. Highs include being at Wembley last May to watch the FA Cup Final against Portsmouth, and of course Andy Campbell’s stunning strike that sunk QPR in the 2003 Div2 play-off final, earning us promtion to what is now the Championship.
However, I have rarely felt much lower as a City fan than I did on the weekend, when City somehow let it all slip and missed out on a play-off spot at the last hurdle, having been top 6 for most of the season!
To say I was gutted hardly does justice to how I felt (to add injury to insult, about 10 minutes after hearing the news I came off my mountain bike at a rate of knots and did serious damage to a part of my anatomy that I really wish I hadn’t!!)
What a good job that for those of us who have trusted Christ, our ultimate hope is not in football teams or mountain bike proficiency, but is rather a hope that will never let us down or leave us wanting:
“hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.” (Romans 5v5)
