Last night, fireworks were at their peak, but were nothing compared to the glorious show God provided afterwards. A beautiful light show filled the sky as refreshing rains fell throughout the evening to cleanse the effects of a dreadfully hot day.
It’s been hot all week. In Minnesota anything more than a couple of days in the 90’s is considered a heat wave. We have extremes here in the Tundra, but it always amazes me how God provides for all of His creation even when the weather is unbearable.
The birds can still find water to refresh themselves, and food to sustain them. The animals are given the ability to find places to rest and hide during extreme temperatures. If God takes care of these creatures by giving them what they need, how much more will He look after the ones He created in His image.
There are days when I think there will be no end to the waiting, or no relief from fear or anger. I try to figure things out myself and don’t rely on the only one who can really take care of me.
Thank you, Heavenly Father, for providing for all my needs in good times and in bad, in fair or bad weather. I know that I can count on you to provide for me and give me the true rest that comes only from your loving hands. I praise you for your bounty. Amen!
