Siran Stacy was a great running back at the University of Alabama between the years 1989-1991 and later played for the Philadelphia Eagles. He was a great football player, but more importantly, Siran was (and is) a faithful Christian. A little over a year ago (on November 19, 2007) Siran and his wife and five children were broadsided by a drunk driver going 80 miles an hour through an intersection while they waited at a traffic light. The impact killed his wife and four of his five children.
This week Fox 6 in Birmingham ran a story about Siran a year after this terrible accident. You can watch it here.
Romans 8:28 is easy to quote. So easy we often forget the power of the promise of God. Siran Stacy has known the blessing of this promise as the Lord has sustained and upheld him through this horrific tragedy. This coming Saturday, Siran will be the honorary team captain for Alabama as they play Auburn. Pray for God’s continued blessing upon him and give thanks that we can all know that all things work together for good.
