"There is no timetable for this,” he recently told CNN, “and that's been the hardest mindset adjustment, is that I don't know. Where is the light at the end of the tunnel? I don't know, so that's been hard. There is nothing I can look forward to, nothing I can build towards."
Tiger is now 39 years old. Only God knows how much time he has left. But picture him 40 or 50 years from now, longing for the light at the end of that tunnel. He may still have tons of money. And by then he may even have restored health, relatively speaking. But if nothing changes in his heart, he’ll still feel that he has nothing to look forward to.
And by then, he may well be right.
Fortunately, until we draw our final breaths, there’s hope. All Tiger needs to do to is look up and seek God. After all, the Lord has promised that if he does – and does so with all his heart – he will find Him (Jeremiah 29:13). And if he repents and trusts in Christ along the way, he will become born-again, heaven-bound, and oblivious to his return to golf.
And then Tiger Woods really would have something to look forward to, for all eternity.
