"Golden-Voiced" Ted Williams: Hype or a miracle from God

The early years of Ted Williams
 By now everyone has seen and been touched one way or another by the first heart-warming story of 2011. Like, hate or don’t care about it homeless man, Ted Williams, with the silky smooth voice has saturated television and radio alike. A man who had a promising radio career in the 1980s later fell from ‘grace’ due to drugs and alcoholism is now given a second chance.

Unlike most stories you have seen, heard or read I am a believer of miracles and second chances which has led me to take a more spiritual observation of the man with the “golden voice”. Ted Williams is another example that comprises of all the ingredients for God to show the masses he is still in the blessing business.

At one time or another we all have made mistakes great or small. Just like the Samaritan women (John 4:1-26) Jesus met at the well whose past life of adultery made her an outcast to society. But thanks be to God he forgave her. After her encounter with Jesus, the Bible does not mention anymore about her future; did she revert back to her old ways, hide from the nay-sayers in shame, or change her behavior. No matter how you interrupted the story of the Samaritan woman or Ted Williams they as well as you deserve a second chance.

In the hustle and bustle of our world today, society has a tendency of edging God completely out even though he continuously knocks on our hearts seeking an opportunity to form a relationship. Though we cry out and/or question God’s presence it is only because we are blinded by life’s obstructions. These barriers leave many with a sense of emptiness, loneliness, doubt and disbelieve. People like Ohio businessman ‘Dan’ who is infuriated of Mr. Williams’s notoriety and job offers from the likes of Kraft, NFL and ESPN. Here is a man with a two year rap sheet of crime and robbery that has affected Dan’s business and in his mind believes Ted does not deserve any of it.

Take a look at your life. What have you done that you deserve a second chance and society refuses to forgive you? Have you forgiven yourself? Have you asked God’s forgiveness? I don’t know what the future holds for Ted Williams and his Golden Voice. I do pray that he will take advantage of this opportunity and glorify God during the process. We to have a bit of the golden voice of Christ in us but we have to choose to listen. In the process we also have to believe and receive that Christ has forgiven us before we are granted a second chance in life.
