Cut From the Super Bowl

The day after the Super Bowl, there needs to be a post about that, right?  Of course!  The story I’m going to choose is what happened even before the first snap.  A wide receiver of the Patriots was cut the day before the game.  Could you imagine getting let go the day before the biggest game of your life?

In response, he didn’t complain or argue, but rather accepted his fate and wished his former team all the luck and success. His response was very powerful, “this will only make me stronger, tough times never last, but people do.”  This is exactly what it’s all about!  Finally, a professional athlete that gets it.  No complaining, no big story.  This is exactly how we should feel and be each day.

Life isn’t given to us.

There are challenges lurking and showing themselves all the time in our lives.  We cannot escape this reality.  There are going to be ups.  There are going to be downs.  Just like with this football player, it’s how we deal with the situation that makes us who we are.  Anyone could make excuses or complain, but it takes a lot to admit mistakes and realize some things are just bigger than you.  What may be in our best interest may not be for the whole.  And this is a tough realization to accept.

But through God, our acceptance will be forever through Him.  Live each and every day for Him.  Give your problems and challenges to Him!
