Losing is difficult. But we all go through adversity at different points of our lives.
For Patriots wide receiver Brandin Cooks, he went through that adversity as he and his teammates lost a heartbreaker to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday in Super Bowl LII.
Cooks was taken to the locker room in the second quarter after making a 23-yard catch. On the play, he was hit from his blindside by Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins. He missed the rest of the game with a head injury.
After the game, and the very tough loss for the Patriots, Cooks took to Twitter and expressed his emotions and his thoughts as a believer in Jesus Christ.
Whatever you are up to God I know it’s for your glory! #thankful

It’s not easy to be thankful when adversity comes, but Cooks’ tweet demonstrates what it says in James 1:2-4:
– Patriots Pro Bowler Matthew Slater praises Eagles players for their faith in Christ
– Patriots’ Devin McCourty relies on Jesus to help lead his family
– Patriots’ Brandin Cooks says faith in Christ is the biggest thing in his life
– Patriots’ Nate Solder leaning on Christ despite son’s rare cancer diagnosis
