When You're Done is Usually When God Begins

If you didn't have a chance to catch the Home Run Derby last night, you missed it. I mean, yeah, you missed a bunch of baseballs flying out of Yankee Stadium, but more than that you missed perhaps the baseball story of the year - maybe the greatest story in the history of the sport. That remains to be seen.

Josh Hamilton, the 27-year old slugger for the Texas Rangers, showed the world he's much more than a great ball player: he's a beacon. For the past several years, Hamilton has been about as obscure a figure in sports as one could be. He would have been completely unknown if it hadn't been for his widely publicized addictions to drugs and alcohol.

But, Hamilton made the choice a couple years ago to recommit his life to Christ and allow God to transform him from the inside-out. Take a moment and read this story about how God never gave up on Hamilton - or on his marriage.
