There is a difference between soreness and injury. There is a difference between missing a practice, game or season and never being able to play again. There is a difference between not meeting expectations and failing completely. There is a difference between a little while and forever. We may find ourselves frustrated or defeated or unmotivated but those are simply flashing yellow lights that tell us that we need to make some changes and the best change we can make is our attitude.
Lord, it seems impossible to change my attitude when I am tired and discouraged but that is why You encourage me to talk with You, as You will provide the peace and often the answers I need.
