After a loss…

God has never made a mistake.

I am a die-hard football fan. I love the game for many reasons, but mostly for its many parallels to life. That speech was made by my 2nd favorite player of all time, after a loss that sealed the Baltimore Ravens’ absence in the Super Bowl. That same year I experienced a series of consecutive losses; financially, emotionally and spiritually. As a warrior, I pride myself on the fight. But, sometimes you lose. You do everything you could possibly do…and still lose. So what do you do, after the loss?

“Don’t ever drop your head when you come to a loss.”

You hold your head up and keep moving. This is especially true when you know God has promised victory. The very next year, the Baltimore Ravens won the Super Bowl, against many odds. It’s taking a little longer than a year for me to see some of God’s promises manifest for me. But I’m still moving. I’m still fighting…and so should you.

For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what is promised. -Hebrews 10:36
