College Basketball Star
Paige Bueckers of the University of Connecticut basketball relies on her faith in God as she recovers from an ACL Injury. This is her second injury after recovering from a knee injury last year. The 20-year-old basketball star will be benched for this season.
“It’s so so crazy because you work so hard to get back healthy, you feel stronger than ever, and you are playing your best basketball and with one sudden movement it all shifts,” Paige wrote in an Instagram post.
She previously missed 19 games of the last season due to her knee injury and will miss another season due to her ACL injury. Though the junior guard is disappointed, she still kept her faith going. She is confident that God is using her injury for good.
“It’s hard trying to make sense of it all now but I can’t help but think that God is using me as a testimony as to how much you can overcome with Him by your side,” she added.
Thankfully, her ACL surgery went well and she’s now started rehab. Paige is hopeful and determined to be back in the game again.
“My absolute love for the game and Godly strength will get me back to where I need to be.”
The basketball star also expressed her gratefulness for the prayers and support everyone showed her.
“The prayers and love mean so much to me and the doubts that I won’t get back to where I was might mean even more. God put a dream in my heart and even if I have to walk through a nightmare to get it I’m going to keep believing.”
