I have a podcast here that I did with John Kremer, the marketing guru. He invited me to share unusual places to sell books. Take a listen and hit those streets running: goo.gl/WGTF7.
I will be doing a short post tonight. I am ill with some kind of crud.
I got the crude from a plane ride full of sick people. Talk about a trapped environment.
I was coming home from San Antonio, Texas, after my team, The Oregon State University Beavers football team lost to Texas, in a heart breaker. We were ahead the whole game except for the last two minutes. We lost 31-27.
It was a great trip except for that loss. Lots of great restaurants, and many fun times with friends.
How do you handle a loss? In our lives we face many losses and victories. The victories are nice, but those losses seem to come around when you least want them to.
I was devastated for a while. Especially after the game when we had to hear the taunts from the Texas fans.
The hurt was hard to handle, but I regrouped and went on.
That is what we need to do with life in general. “Things,” will happen to us. We will feel devastated. That is the point we will have to get ourselves up off the ground and keep going.
By the way… God is always there for you. He won’t stop the trials and storms, but He will be there to calm them.
You are never alone.
You are never forsaken.
You are never unloved.
And above all…never, ever, give up!
