On this day in history, 35 years ago, the great John Elway took his Denver Broncos to the Super Bowl, only to lose to the Washington Redskins, 42-10. For many, such a blowout would have been devastating.

Resilience. Nothing matters more.
The old prophet said, “Even though the flocks die in the fields, and the cattle barns are empty, yet I will rejoice in the Lord!” (Habakkuk 3:18).

Recovery Step: Don’t let your past define you. Learn from your mistakes and move forward.
