Joyful and Determined as Legislative Session Begins

January 11


If you are like me, waking up last Wednesday morning was hard. I felt disappointed, angry, and even fearful for what a leftist controlled government would hold for our future. But I was quickly reminded that this reaction to the election news was not what God had for me.

The verse that kept coming to mind was Ephesians 6:12, “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.”

Our fight isn’t against an individual like Raphael Warnock, but against the enemy who is using this so-called pastor to normalize evil. How I should’ve woken up on Wednesday morning was not sad, but joyful.

Joyful and determined.

Today is the first day of the legislative session. This is where our next battle begins. We have a lot of policy initiatives this session that are aimed to protect the value of our faith, families, and freedom.

One of the bills is called the Tebow Bill. This bill allows homeschool students to participate in extracurricular activities in public schools.

Another bill we are working on is called “Save Girls’ Sports.” This bill prohibits biological males from participating in girls’ sports to keep the playing field fair.

We will also be working to regulate and limit access to the abortion pill and require parental consent before a DNR is placed on a child.

Also, we will be working on what is called the “Vulnerable Child Protection Act.” This bill would prohibit the use of hormone injections or hormone-blocking drugs and sex-changing procedures in minors.

We will also be fighting to protect religious freedom and block casinos and gambling from infiltrating our state.

And much more.

As you can see, the stakes are high, and we have a lot of work to do. So, I ask you to fight with us. This is not the time to be sad or fearful, but the time to stand up for the values that God has placed on our heart. It’s the time to “stand firm and take action,” and we’ll be keeping you updated every step of the way.

We at Family Policy Alliance of Georgia® are not going to back down, and we need your help. Please consider standing with us and donating now as we go into battle. Our legislative agenda is bigger than ever before and $25, $50, $100, or greater can go a long way toward making sure we pass God-honoring legislation. And please reach out if you want to help with these initiatives or have any questions.

When I wake up disappointed in where our nation is going, I promise to be reminded of the verse above. I promise to remember people like you who have stood behind us in these times. And I promise to keep pressing on.

Philippians 3:13-15, “Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus”

In faith,
