Atlanta Braves’ Star Player Praises ‘The Good Lord’ After Winning World Series

Atlanta Braves player and Georgia native Dansby Swanson praises "the good Lord" after the team's recent World Series win.

After helping the Atlanta Braves win the World Series by defeating the Houston Astros 7-0 Tuesday night, star player Dansby Swanson gave thanks to “The Good Lord” in his post-game interview. 

The 27-year-old is known for openly expressing his Christian faith. So it’s great to see him get the win.

What’s more, Swanson gets the distinction of bringing the Commissioner’s Trophy back to his home state of Georgia!

“The good Lord, I mean he’s blessed me so much,” Dansby Swanson said. “Wouldn’t be here without him. Just the peace that he gives me, is just, it’s remarkable. And especially in moments like this, you know, you can never go wrong trusting in that. And, like I said, I’m just so thankful to be here.”

After hitting a home run in Game Four, Swanson talked about how God has a plan for everybody. 

“I’m just so thankful to be here. I really can’t say it enough,” he said. “Getting traded over here, at the time, I didn’t understand it. But God’s always got a plan, and if I’ve learned one thing, it’s having faith in that plan will never fail you. And it’s one of the best things that’s ever happened to me.”

Dansby Swanson’s Previous Comments About God 

Before this season even started, Swanson discussed his strong Christian faith while appearing on the Sports Spectrum Podcast.

“If anything, the lesson that I’ve learned was that you can’t go wrong trusting and growing closer to God,” Swanson said. “Whatever way that works for you is what works for you. But spend time with God. Legitimately spend time in the words that he wrote through people that were on this earth. Spend time in prayer and meditation and silence. Do these things to grow near to him.”

“I really started to feel his presence more, and I really started to feel more comfortable with the callings and stuff that he’s put on my heart,” he added.

God Is With Dansby Swanson In More Than Just The Good Times

This is far from the first time-period that Swanson has talked about his faith in God.

In 2018, he emphasized the fact that God doesn’t only walk with him during the good times. 

“When everything is going good, you don’t make any adjustments,” he said at the time while appearing on the “That Sounds Fun Podcast.” “Failure teaches you so much. We talk about God’s timing is everything. There’s so many things I can start to list out that His timing is everything and me struggling last year was one of them. Last year was miserable. But I’m so tremendously thankful that I went through it. It’s so blessed the fact that we’re even alive. The odds of you being born are ridiculous.”

“He has a plan and to trust and believe in that plan. I came into spring training, I was just like, ‘God I don’t want to have to re-live the same thing I went through last year,'” Swanson concluded. “But there’s just like this overwhelming sense of peace that everything is going to be OK. I prepare with the best of them, I really do, and everything is going to be OK and there’s just this overwhelming sense of comfort from that.”

These days, it’s hard to find celebrities who are so open about their faith in God.

We were already impressed when the World Series winning Atlanta Braves stuck it to the woke left by having conservative country star Travis Tritt sing the National Anthem.

So we’re even more impressed now to see one of their star players publicly giving thanks to God!

Let’s share this to spread Dansby Swanson’s message and thank him for  serving as an example to young Christians everywhere.

We hope this Atlanta Braves player and more like him will continue to use their platform to spread the word of God!
