Water From the Fire Hydrant

By: Chris Johnson


We all knew that the year President Trump ran for reelection would be a doozy, but 2020 had more in store for us than we could have ever imagined.

It’s been “another day, another crisis,” to co-opt the old saying, as we’ve witnessed disasters in the forms of wildfires, breaking dams, rioting, Supreme Court justices dying, and election corruption – all of this within the framework of a worldwide pandemic and our governments’ feeble attempts to control it by grabbing as much power as possible, executing small businesses, and neglecting non-covid related physical needs along the way.

Staying up to date on the news has been like drinking water from a fire hydrant.  Click here to read about our ministry involvements in the challenging year of 2020.

And who can honestly expect 2021 to slow down at all? Should Biden be inaugurated next month we can only imagine how his opposition might be co-opted into the “unity” he claims to desire. As we’re well familiar with the left’s inability to compromise with those it “deplores,” we are left to assume that “unity” will be the banner under which we are “persuaded” to their way of seeing things.

That’s a lot of scare quotes in that last paragraph, but we are indeed entering into some concerning times. Our nation is more ideologically divided than ever, and it is difficult to imagine how that division can continue under any form of status quo. In such times, it is always nice to be the party in power, but that may not be the case going forward.

In short, we do not know what the future my hold, but – from our earthly perspective – it’s not as bright as it could be.

This makes us all the more grateful for your past support, friends, yet all the more in need of your standing with us in the year ahead. As we’ve explained in the past, it is our year-end giving that carries us through a good share of the year to come. We are hoping to start next year out strong as we are confident that God will have many fronts in which He will position us.  To stand with us click here.

We suspect that there may be huge challenges in store for ministries like ours in the years ahead and we value your support more than ever!

I am always encouraged when I recall a point made one Sunday by my pastor regarding God’s sovereignty. He pointed out that if we knew what God knows, we would ask for what He gives us – every time. That includes the season we are going through now, my friends.

Let us perform our duties to the glory of God, and rest in the fact that He will use them for His glory and our good.
