“I Once Was Blind”

“Alone, I Couldn’t Win This Battle. With Jesus, I Couldn’t Lose”

This is a great story about Josh Hamilton, the Texas Rangers’ outfielder who went from #1 draft pick, to crack addiction, and to clean and back in the majors.  Last night he set the record for most home runs in the first round of the Home Run Derby as part of Major League Baseball’s All-Star festivities.

Praise God from whom all blessings flow!  It may not be crack, but we all have our own addictions to sin.  Just like crack, they all make promises that they don’t keep.  Let us take a lesson from Josh Hamilton and realize that we can’t win our battles alone.  However, with Jesus we can’t lose!
