A message from pastor Michael Eleveld
I will never forget the platform diving competition at the Sydney Olympics. Entering the final four dives, Laura Wilkinson, America’s diver, was standing in eighth place. It would be a miracle if she managed to medal somehow. But on that evening Laura put together four of the best dives of her life, barely leaving a ripple in the water as she dove into the pool. At the same time, her world-renowned counterparts were doing the Olympic version of belly flops. When it was all said and done Laura Wilkinson had won the gold medal for platform diving!
It was an incredible victory! A sportscaster pulled her aside and asked, “Laura, from eighth place to Olympic gold in four dives, how did you do it?” Laura looked into the lens of the world and said, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Wow! She had quoted Philippians 4:13. I will never forget that moment.
I Can Do All Things Through Christ
Yet, here at The Treatment Center we see that same miracle occur over and over again. Not Olympic gold, but more importantly, lives that were transformed by the love of Christ. People who were horribly enslaved to drugs or alcohol, now stand before their peers and say, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Every week we see this happen. And every week brings reminders from former patients who are successfully continuing their recovery because of their dependence upon Christ and His power in their lives. Moments like that drive my passion for this rehab center and for the Road to Freedom program.
