It Has Never Been Done Before

On Friday, May 10th, a core team working on the Now Choose Life ballot initiative had a video chat with the Secretary of State. After explaining the rules and the process to us, he asked a question. “How much money do you have? No one has ever successfully met the deadline for submitting signatures in this short of a time without millions of dollars and lots of paid circulators.” We chuckled a bit. At the time we did not have a bank account set up for the project and I doubt that the finances raised at the time would cover the cost of a printer and ink. We told him that we don’t have money like that, but we believe this is from the Lord. We are going forward with this and we are trusting that God to do what has never been seen before.

That night, a storm in the heavens lit up the sky! I don’t think I had ever seen the Northern lights before, and I certainly did not expect that I could see them this far South, in the middle of a city.

It brought to mind our theme verse.

 “I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you and your offspring may live” Deuteronomy 30:19

125,000 signatures in 6 weeks? A successful grassroots campaign for this is something the Secretary of State has never seen before. But that night the heavens dazzled with a display that I and millions of others have never seen before.

I think the heavens are witnessing to us. New things are possible. We can get this on the ballot. We can choose life in 2024!!!
