I received a letter from a college that we support, Patrick Henry College. In many ways it was a standard fund raising letter. I know that but I also expect to read something encouraging from a college that is committed to making a Christian difference in this world. I was not disappointed.
The letter was signed by Michael Farris who is chancellor of the school. He related a comment by a colleague in response to his concerns about the way the country was going.
“Look at all the good stuff that is going on around you here at PHC. Look at what is being done now and what can be done in the future. I don’t think that God would bless all of this preparation for the future of America, if He was finished with our nation in 12112. We really have reasons to be encouraged about the long haul.” (Emphasis in original)The reminder to me is that I am in this for the “long haul.” God is the God of eternity, not just today. As a servant, I am to be faithful, do my best and leave the long range planning in His hands. If I can trust Him for eternity, I can trust Him for tomorrow.
Join me in hope.
