Season-ending injuries not only bring to a halt the normal life experiences of a student but also affect them psychologically. It is, therefore, imperative that in such depressing moments, such students are re-affirmed of their true potential with the talents the almighty Lord has granted them and be dissuaded from brewing self-damaging negativity. The chaplain must cultivate and re-affirm injured students the pertinence of rejoicing in their sportsmanship given the hard work they have put in pre and during the season.
Null connotes that “ [nothing] pushes back [sports people] anxieties like realizing that nothing which will happen during the Games can ever take away the joys of the athletic journey that brought them there.” Therefore, utilizing their mental psychology, a chaplain can utilize their love for the sport to build positive mental psychology engraved in spiritual experiences. As Null observes, “God takes all of his children on journeys they do not wish to go. He makes them travel by roads they do not wish to use.” However, He never leaves them to despair, and through joy, He helps them endure their hardships.
