Losses are hard. It’s just a fact of life. The ladies fell to Des Moines 4-0 on Sunday in the nasty rain. Turns out, while I’m not necessarily competitive in nature, I took that harder then I thought I would. It wasn’t anger, it was fear:
Will Kansas City care? Did we fail? How are the standings? Are businesses writing us off?
I mean, it is incredible the amount of questions I could come up with out of fear.
However, driving home from Des Moines I thought back to breakfast. I was alone heading to Starbucks and was thinking on the concept of giving God the glory, all the time. It seems easy to give Him praise, credit, point your finger to the air, etc…when things are going right. But, when things aren’t, that’s where you’ll really see who gets credit. So, even though it was bitter, the reality is that win/loss my ship has to maintain course. This isn’t my team, program, or business. It’s God’s and I have to be able to represent Him and His teachings, no matter what the day throws my way.
It’s currently Monday and I’ve slept the best I could, plenty of things to get done today.
