My Worst Fan Letter | Facing Your Blitz Weekly Video Devotion

In this week’s Facing Your Blitz devotional, I share a “fan letter” I received while playing with the San Francisco 49ers as the backup to Joe Montana. I learned some valuable lessons from that letter and wanted to share some things I hope you can use in your daily life! Use this devotional for some personal reflection or start a small group discussion. I’m excited you are checking this out and hope it helps you as you and those you love face life’s blitzes! Please share it with others if you find this of value!!


“Reality must be faced. We are not what we do, whom we work for, or who the public sees us to be. We’re persons with spirits, souls, personalities, emotions, stories, wounds, fears, virtues, strengths, and weaknesses. To understand these things about ourselves is to know ourselves. We become free to live at peace with others, to live with contentment, not dependent upon circumstances, and to handle the losses in life —including the loss of certain dreams.”

Facing the Blitz, Strategy #1: Take a Long Term View


The Playbook:

For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.

Ephesians 2:10 (NLT)



  • Do you measure yourself by what you accomplish and how people view you?


  • What’s one way you would live differently if you didn’t worry so much about what people thought of you?

Go Deep:

You can discover more on how to create a big vision out of broken dreams in chapter 3 of Facing the Blitz.

Look around and make it your goal to make others feel like first string, like valuable masterpieces. Lifting other up will help you feel like more than just a back-up player.
