With praise and gratitude for the beauty of summer, is an accompanying heaviness because of the wildfires consuming our landscape. While my prayer is for the Lord to bring an end to this devastation, I am thankful that He provides reason to thank Him.
Trials have a way of testing our resolve to “ give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” I Thessalonians 5:18 (ESV). While I’m not thankful for the fires, I give thanks for other blessings that run concurrently.
I pray you can do the same in whatever situation you find yourself today.
