Jeremy Lin’s return to the Brooklyn Nets after missing 26 games ended in a tough team loss. But the point guard is still focusing on God and finding reasons to be thankful.

The 28-year-old basketball star has missed the majority of the 2016-2017 NBA season due to multiple hamstring injuries. When he returned to the court on Friday, his Nets suffered a 129-109 loss at the hands of the Denver Nuggets.

After his return game in which he only played 15 minutes, Lin seemed to put things into perspective for fans on social media. The Christian athlete alluded to the fact that he would continue to trust in God during the tough times.

“Tough game but thankful for my health and my mom coming to watch,” he wrote on Instagram. “She said ‘I’m excited to come to Denver it feels like a field trip” lollll. Gonna keep workin and trusting Him #BrooklynGrit.”
