Should We Quit Just Because Vehicles Do?

With our recent transportation trials, some fans have asked, "Do you think God wants you to call it quits?" We've certainly prayed about that, and God knows we're open to whatever He wants us to do.
But remember: Our main challenge has been vehicle problems. If God were closing a door for us, we think He'd do more than just allow us to have vehicle problems.
Concert attendance is the best we've seen in years, and the band members are playing well together, both on stage and off. Many people tell us our latest CD is our best yet. And fans are urging us to carry on.
The economy's lousy, but God continues to provide when we make our needs known. Often it's through fans we've never heard from before, but there are many others who give regularly. Either way, it's encouraging!
In the meantime, God continues to provide new ideas and lyrics, and we feel like we're growing closer to Him through these trials.
The Apostle Paul faced shipwrecks, imprisonments, stonings, and rejections from both enemies and friends, but he still didn't give up, because he knew what he had been called to do.
Ultimately, God speaks to the hearts of those who honestly seek Him, giving them the hope to carry on. Although we have moments of despair, we feel God strengthening us and leading us onward.
