I find it very sad when I hear of projects that are no longer going to production, due to what is happening politically in America. We will be going into our 13th year of our Summer Ray project, and no one – and I mean no one will tell me I cannot make this film or not have it distributed. If God is for this project, who can be against it? I mean seriously – who? No one is greater than God!
I am reminded of a story in Genesis 26:18-22:
“Now Isaac again dug [and reopened] the wells of water which had been dug in the days of Abraham his father, because the Philistines had filled them up [with dirt] after the death of Abraham; and he gave the wells the same names that his father had given them. But when Isaac’s servants dug in the valley and found there a well of flowing [spring] water, the herdsmen of Gerar quarreled with Isaac’s herdsmen, saying, “The water is ours!” So Isaac named the well Esek (quarreling), because they quarreled with him. Then his servants dug another well, and they quarreled over that also, so Isaac named it Sitnah (enmity). He moved away from there and dug another well, and they did not quarrel over that one; so he named it Rehoboth (broad places), saying, “For now the LORD has made room for us, and we shall be prosperous in the land.”
Without water, life dies and the Philistines knew it. But Isaac persevered. I am also reminded of a quote by Colonel Henry Knox of the Continental Army during the American Revolution:
“Perseverance accomplished what at first seemed impossible.”
Perseverance is defined as: persistence in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success. How many amazing stories and documentaries are going to the grave because of Political Correctness? Even one, is one too many. We need to stand and fight against this no matter how long it takes. I believe the America we used to know is coming back, better and stronger. This “woke” garbage is not going to last and we have to continue moving forward with our projects until we succeed. But as the picture below states:
Don’t give up. American history needs to be remembered. Don’t give up. Someone may need to see and hear what you have to create. Don’t give up. The world loses what lies dead in a grave.
As for Summer Ray – we will persevere!
“For now the LORD has made room for us, and we shall be prosperous in the land.”
Amen and Amen! Thank You, Jesus!!!
