My love for the sport of billiards began at a pool table in a bowling alley. The joy of playing was my fascination with watching the balls rolling along the felt toward their intended pockets.
As I got older, my focus changed. Joyful fascination turned into obsession when I began steering the balls toward the pockets for my own self serving profit and recognition.
Realizing the emptiness of my pursuit, I turned away from pool, vowing to never play again. However, God had a different plan....
"But You Must! chronicles the candid accounts of Steve Lillis' personal journey with one of life's games (pocket billiards) and one of life's quests (a search for God).
Steve follows his dream of becoming a professional pool player and, along the way, finds romantic love, serious challenges, and depression-ridden disappointments. The pitfalls of drugs, alcohol, strife, and gambling which often find residence in the world of pool create less than hospitable situations at every turn. In an attempt to find answers, Steve continues to ask the question, "What do you want me to do, Lord?" Although the answer does not come quickly, the answer does come.
