Planted in Faith

Don’t dig up in doubt what you planted in faith.

Elisabeth Elliot

Our founding fathers worked hard to get this country up and running by shedding a lot of blood, sweat, tears, and prayers.

They did not dig up in doubt what they were planting in faith. The prayers were not just for the founding of this country but I also believe they were praying for such a time as this. A time of division, misinformation, and tyranny. A time when this country would either rise up united again or fall completely apart and be divided into several other countries.

Since they prayed for their current situation and the future of the country, we must do the same.

We do not need to dig up in doubt what they and the soldiers planted in faith and blood.
