“However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth, for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak, and He will tell you things to come”
I knew from the beginning of this project that I wanted to put him in the shadows versus at center ice with lots of light on him, I wanted to put the warrior coming out as an illustration. Carpe Diem, with the smoke of battle coming from his attitude. He is a ready to conquer, but not conquer in the true sense of conquer as most would see it. The FCA Hockey warrior competes to conquer because they know the power of Scripture, they are hope for the hopeless, strength for the weak, and faithful for those who need some faith, and confident when others doubt under pressure. The FCA Hockey warrior competes to conquer, not to show man that they are better, but to show the world how God is using them, so they can glorify Him. I know from camps and clinics and being around FCA Hockey that are our calling is much bigger than our performance, but our performance is a reflection of our amazing Creator. Therefore, the results of my efforts, must result in His glory.
So I wanted to paint a Warrior that was strong, committed and determined to follow his warrior King, Jesus. I wanted to make sure he was intense and battle ready. That's why the head is slightly tilted, he has been praying, but his step is heavy because he wants to battle and win, but battle and win for the Glory of Christ, to prove is rank and title in God’s army, his King.
The “FCA Hockey Warrior” is equipped for spiritual battle on and off the ice. His preparedness is unbridled in love, courage, hope, faithfulness, accountability, patience, and self control.
We are a spirit and soul warrior that is committed to prayer and living a life filled with the love of Jesus like no other athlete on the planet.
