The date was December 27, 2000. For those of you who aren’t so gifted in mathematics, that makes that 20 years ago today. Here’s what happened.
Hockey legend Mario Lemieux scored a goal and had two assists, leading the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 5-0 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs. Not a big deal, except for one thing.
Lemieux was playing his first game 3.5 years.
Everyone loves a good comeback. Sports is full of them. Of course, the greatest comeback of all time happened the day Jesus rose from the dead.
Jesus did that so you can have a comeback story. No matter how far you have fallen or what you have done, you can have an incredible future. Because Jesus came back you can come back. Freedom and recovery can be yours.
Recovery Step: “Greater is he who is in [you] than he that is in the world” (1 John 4:4). Claim that promise and walk in victory today!
Mark and Beth Denison, married for 36 years, launched There’s Still Hope as a national movement to call men and women into lives of sexual integrity. Their ministry offers 90-day recovery plans for addicts and one-on-one and group coaching for addicts and their spouses. TSH also produces resources for pastors and churches to confront the porn epidemic that is destroying so many lives.
Dr. Denison was a senior pastor for over 30 years, NBA chaplain, and board chairman at Houston Baptist University three times. With a Master’s Degree in Addiction Recovery, Mark is a certified PSAP and active member of the American Association of Christian Counselors.
