…the city burns

Please pray for our town, and for our state which is literally on fire.

We are safe so far, but our hearts are broken for the damage the fire is causing, and for the thousands of people who have been evacuated.


It’s times like this that can be difficult to understand God’s plan. 

“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.”
–Jeremiah 29:11

It can become hard to see what good could possibly come out of a situation like this.

And we know that God causes everything
to work together for the good of those
who love God and are called according
to his purpose for them.
-Romans 8:28


No matter the reason or the outcome,  it does give us an opportunity to stay right at the foot of the throne, and lean on The One who gives us hope.

God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
-Psalm 46:1

Will definitely keep your family in my prayers and pray that the fires are put out soon.
