    Bruce's Blog 9-18-07

    written by IsaacBruce (September 18, 2007)


    Stay Positive, Take A Stand


    For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

    At the start of the 2007 NFL season, I would expect that a ton of goals were set. Out of the many goals that were set I'm sure that 100% of the goal setters never once thought about the process that would have to take place for the manifestation or the fruition to arrive. My meaning is just this, when we plant seeds in the earth we never see what's going on underground, but we believe that the process is working. Unfortunately, we live in a society where the microwave mentality is so prevalent that everyone wants fruit from that seed yesterday.

    During the preseason I was offered an opportunity to have lunch with a Hall of Famer, who played most of his career for a team I'm not very fond of…..OK, the ***** and Ronnie Lott. Almost instantly my gift of shut up and listen rose up on the inside of me because this is a person I not only respect but is in a place I desire to be. Mr. Lott is very successful in his post playing days. Given the chance to ask many questions, I only truly had one serious one and that was, "How do you handle the down times within your business?" It was interesting to hear this Hall of Famer's reply. It reminded me of the many encouraging words I've heard from coaches, friends, family, and fans, "What you do is continue to push, do the small things, and stay positive."

    I sit here 0-2 smart enough to go back in NFL history to focus on the many teams that started 0-2 and finished in the playoffs. That's my focus. You may be reading this piece and your job, marriage, finances, or some other relationship is under attack. Take a stand. There is hope and when faith is added to that hope, "No one can stop you but you." We have to be active participants in our own rescue. Continue to call things which be not as though they were! Remember, PS 34:19, "many are the affliction (test, trials, and storms) of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all."

    Ending, give praise where it is due, to all of the defensive coordinators in the NFL, Randy Moss is still explosive!!!

    P.S. This is my MVP season.

    I know Sunday's loss had to sting for Bruce.
