Gospel Trick Shot # 6 Be Still ~ by Steve Lillis

History of the Trick Shot: The first time I saw this shot was probably in a trick shot show by the great Hall of Fame pool player Irving Crane from Rochester, NY. I had the privilege of playing in the 1977 World 14.1 Straight Pool Championship with him where he took 4th in his mid-sixties and I took 9th as a 26-year-old. This classic shot was used by many of the game’s greatest players in their trick shot shows.

GTS Name and Why: When I observed that the cue ball in the center of the shot does not move, I thought about how God wants us to be still and reflect on Him. My nickname is “Leapin” and I did not get that name by being still. This shot always reminds me to spend time being still as I seek the Lord.

Scripture References in NIV Translation: Psalm 46:10 says to “Be still and know that I am God;” and also Proverbs 8:34 and Psalm 131:2 say more on the subject.

Cue Ball Placement: Place cue ball in between the two object balls as shown. Use another object ball to replace the cue ball as the ball you strike to set the shot in motion.
