Well, as us Raven fans lick our wounds from a brutal loss to the dastardly black and gold, I had to redirect my attitude to stay positive. I began to think about all of the things that the Ravens, and yes even the steelers, had to overcome to make it this far. For the Ravens, no one gave them a chance at the beginning of the season. The "experts" were saying a .500 club at best. The Ravens had to overcome incredible injuries throughout the year to key players. They had to go with a rookie QB that no one had heard of. They had to go with a rookie head coach. And on and on I could go.
My point is this. What kind of obstacles have you had to overcome to get where you are now? How did God overcome them for you? What obstacles may lie ahead of you this year? How can you keep your attitude on the positive side when faced with these obstacles? 1 John 5:4 reminds us 'for everyone born of God overcomes the world.' We may not always make it to the 'big show', but we can be overcomers.
