Get Back On the Mound

Audio / Produced by The High Calling


In 1974, Tommy John led all pitchers in the National Baseball League. His team was headed for the World Series. Then one afternoon, while pitching a game, Tommy ruptured a ligament in his elbow. Following surgery, the doc was somber. He said the odds of Tommy pitching again were a hundred to one.

A few Sundays later, Tommy heard his preacher say, "With God, nothing is impossible." Four months after that, the cast came off and Tommy began rehab. Eighteen months later, he walked onto the mound and pitched. In fact, he pitched more games after surgery than before.

This is Howard Butt, Jr., of Laity Lodge. What would you like to overcome? With God, nothing is impossible . . . in the high calling of our daily work.

Jesus replied, "What is impossible with men is possible with God."

(Luke 18:27)
