Doubting If It is Real

We are pausing in our study this week to address something that creeps into all of our lives, doubt. As we examine Psalm 23 some of us may be doubting if it is real. Dan had given me this column addressing doubt. Are you doubting that God can be counted on to fulfill His promise?  Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This is Rev. Dan letting Rev. Don have a break this week from writing;

At Racing with Jesus Ministries, we have a lot of interaction with the drivers on race day. We love to go into Victory Lane to congratulate the winner and their team. We see a celebration filled with joy and happiness. But after that we usually take a long walk through the pits and talk with those drivers as they are loading up that did not end up in Victory Lane. A lot of times we don’t see too much happiness – many times we see wrecked or broken cars and drivers and teams that had a bad race. We see misery and drivers who are very hard on themselves. They tell themselves that they don’t have the right equipment, or that they’ll never win. It’s amazing how when we are discouraged, doubt begins to show up.

Charette Aims For Quick Start

Getting off the mark in strong fashion is especially important in weekly auto racing. Dennis Charette plans on doing just that in the season-opening SK-150 at Waterford Speedbowl. “There is of course the money,” explains Charette who returns in Chris Druin’s #35 SK. “It is more than the money though because it sets the tone toward a strong season. It spreads a ton of confidence around the team and it affects the way other teams look at you. It establishes you as a contender.”

The $5,000-to win SK-150 is the centerpiece of the 12th annual, 11-division Budweiser Modified Nationals April 12-13. The first of extra-distance, extra-money SK events, it remains one of the division’s premier races.

Charette joins 2007 winner Jeff Pearl, defending champion Rob Janovic Jr. and six-time champ Dennis Gada on the list of “regulars” hoping to keep the money and prestige at home. Likely invaders, all of whom have filed entries, include Ted Christopher, Jeff Malave, Kenny Horton, 2006 winner Frank Ruocco, Doug Coby and Rob Summers.
