We Would Love to Hear From You
One of the great things about the Lord is the fact He is slow to anger and abounds in mercy. In fact, Lamentations says “Through the LORD’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They (His compassions) are new every morning; Great is Your (His) faithfulness” (Lam. 3:22-23). Do you know what that means? It means no matter how bad yesterday was, we can always begin again tomorrow with our God. Always!
Do you believe that? Do you truly believe that?
If so, it means that no matter how great your sin, or failure, or disappointment, or bitterness, or unanswered prayer you suffered from yesterday, it is just that— yesterday’s news. And today it is all forgotten, all forgiven, all put to rest.
God promises His compassion is new, fresh, and in abundant supply every time we open our eyes and behold the new morning. They are new every morning. Not some mornings, but every morning. God provides His mercy and compassion to us each new day, regardless of how we defiled the day before.
Therefore, in wonder and appreciation, we cry out to our God, “Great is Your faithfulness!”
After all the chaos and upheaval we’ve seen in our country these past few weeks that threatens to tear apart the very fabric of our republic and the church, we have come to a place in our lives where we must ask ourselves the question, What do I believe?
That’s right. What do I believe?
• What am I willing to die for?
• What is the mission and calling of my life?
• What means the most to me?
• And what truth will I not compromise on?
Or, as Martin Luther said when commanded to recant his beliefs to save his life, “Here I stand, I can do no other, so help me God.”
So let me ask you, what do you believe about the times in which we live?
The following is from Samuel Culpeper with Forward Observer. I believe this accurately sums up what happened, and didn’t happen, today in DC and what we can expect in the days to come. Read and be informed. And be prepared. Then ask yourself, where do we go from here?

I’m writing a quick note this afternoon following today’s protest in Washington D.C. and breach of the Capitol building. I have three initial thoughts on this and other events that occurred today.
1. Back in November I wrote that, presuming a Biden victory, the Right would assume the mantle of political resistance and proto-insurgent activity. A Biden administration, after all, will be toeing or crossing red lines on the Second Amendment, religious liberty and the First Amendment, taxes, and a host of other Obama-era policies that riled conservatives enough to form a national protest movement. I surmised that after a summer of violent attacks, riots, and destruction by the Left, conservatives may be feeling some leeway in how they protest. After all, we were told for most of last year that riots are just the voice of the unheard. At a minimum, the grassroots conservative protest movement we saw from 2009 to 2016 is coming back under a third Obama administration, and today is the first notch in that belt. Low-intensity conflict will continue.
