Quote by Shawn Johnson
It sounds funny, but the 2008 Olympics were something that just kind of happened, and I was lucky they came at a point when I was uninjured and well prepared. As a gymnast, you can't ask for much more.
In this quote, the speaker reflects on their experience participating in the 2008 Olympics as a gymnast. Despite the speaker's light-hearted tone, their underlying message reveals gratitude for the opportunity. They emphasize the factor of luck, acknowledging that being injury-free and well-prepared allowed them to fully embrace the Games. The simplicity of saying "you can't ask for much more" suggests contentment and a recognition of the ideal circumstances that contributed to their successful participation.
For God to prove himself on demand, physically, would be a grave disappointment, and the strongest Christians should be considerably grateful that he chooses not to do so. The skeptic endlessly demands proof, yet God refuses to insult the true intelligence of man, the '6th sense', the chief quality, the acumen which distinguishes man from the rest of creation, faith.
