I am sure you’re asking how The Rock has anything to do with Crush Velvet Club, well to be honest, nothing at all. This isn’t about Dwayne though, it is in reference to his profession. Wrestling is one of the oldest sports in the history of competitive recreation, a display of strength, endurance, and tactical skills. The three sets of skills I have just mentioned are also imperative in the spiritual realm of competition, except for now you use the strength and endurance of faith. Life is one big wrestling match, you struggle to put temptation into submission, and it feels like you keep getting pinned, but you press forward never tap out. One of the greatest wrestlers I know is Jacob. Jacob wrestled with an angel (yes an angel) for an entire day in order to receive his blessing. He was so strong, so determined, and so incredible that he wrestled a heavenly being to receive what the Lord had promised him. The angel quickly realized that Jacob meant business and broke Jacob’s hip in order to gain the upper hand, but still Jacob would not let go. This degree of tenacity rarely exists in young men and women of our generation, but here at CVC we have the spirit of Jacob (and David) and will not let go until we touch this world. So no matter what your are going through, it might seem as though you’re hip is broken and the battle is against something that is out of this world, but remember strength, endurance,and faith will see you through. Keep Fighting!!
