This past year brought us undeniable victories – the overturning of Roe v. Wade, the reinstatement of Coach Kennedy after his win at SCOTUS, and pro-life activist David Daleiden’s victory over the University of Washington, to name a few.
But we also witnessed discouraging events, like the passage of the (Dis)Respect for Marriage Act, the recent congressional approval of the omnibus bill loaded with pro-LGBT and abortion pork, radicals pushing inappropriate gender ideology onto children here in Washington (like at UW Med and the Edmonds school district), and more.
But we will press on in 2023 because we know that God is on our side and hears our prayers!
As we head into the new year, I invite you to reflect on this verse with the FPIW team:
We are afflicted in every way, but not constrained; perplexed, but not driven to despair;
persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed;
always carrying about in the body the dying of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our body.
2 Corinthians 4: 8-10
God is with us in our battles – each victory propels us forward; every disappointment strengthens our resolve and sharpens our minds.
God bless, and may God rain down blessings on us all in 2023!
