“We say a prayer every game, before and after,” Lanier said. “We take a moment of silence for those less fortunate than ourselves. Because we get the opportunity to do what we love and we shouldn’t take it for granted.”

Lanier spoke on this issue as he wanted to reiterate that giving up is not the solution when circumstances in life aren’t going the way you would hope for. “I don’t want these guys to regret this experience… if we go down swinging, then we go down… but when you quit, you’re going to have regret.”

There may come many times in your life when you want to quit and give up because things are not happening the way the way it should, but we should remind ourselves that God is there with us and these trials and tribulations in life happen to make us more stronger.

Psalm 31:24 “Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD.”

Verse of the Day

The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit. — 1 Corinthians 2:14 (NIV)
