There’s another mutation of COVID on the loose. We’re going to have to man up and face it, just like taking another punch to the face. If you remember the Rocky Balboa movies, the moral of the story was not how often you can beat the crap out of someone else…it’s how often you can get up after taking a beating. Sometimes all we have to do is get back up. It serves as inspiration for ourselves and others. We have to keep on keeping on.

2 Corinthians 4:8-9 regarding Christians

We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed;

We are called to succeed. Maybe not in the definition others have for succeed, but from a Biblical (eternal) standpoint we’re supposed to be the historical figures who stood up when things were getting rough.
