Dirt Sport Ministry Newsletter – March | 2020
It is amazing how quick things can change. Just a month ago everything was running smooth, our businesses were operating at max capacity, everyone was making money and having fun. The talk in the pits circled around too many events, not enough time to prep race cars and how to get it all done. We were all going full-throttle and had it pinned; set for an exciting year of racing.

Two-thousand twenty was set to be a record year-ready or not, green, green, green than wham! We go from green, to full-course yellow and now red flags waving at each corner. Uncertainty is setting in as the coronavirus changes the course of the track each day. So, what does God say about uncertainty? What does God say when we feel scared or begin to fear the unknown? When the events our lives circle around get cancelled, it leaves us wondering who is in control.
Isaiah 41:10 “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
(The Mint 400 – Team Honda Off Road)
God is with us; we do not have to fear because he is in control even though the circumstances around us are out of our control. This verse promises us that God will see us through our financial struggles, our business operations, and even the racing season. I encourage you to put down any distractions and use this time to align your heart with Him. God has a plan!
Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
The Christian walk, standing firm in times of uncertainty, is not a walk to take by yourself. We need each other in order make the grid, stage, and peel out! God bless you in 2020.
