"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened,
and I will give you rest."
My Arizona town of Sierra Vista is weary........
We are heavy burdened........
As the Monument Fire rages destroying homes
and sending people and their animals fleeing for
His presence and his promise transform the darkness, making even our weariness and our burdens a blessing. After all, these things have opened our ears and our hearts to his invitation. They drive us into our Savior's embrace.
Even in the midst of a fire storm He is with us. Provision is
all around as we are finding this out from the outpouring of
our citizens and surrounding communities. The fire
still rages and in it all the best of people comes shining through!!
What wearies and burdens you right now? When we
find ourselves in the long, dark tunnel of weariness and burdens, Jesus meets us there. Just think of that! Jesus meets us there.......in those dark places, those dark times when we feel lost.
It's all good. Or, rather, it's good when we let our Savior's words of hope and promise seep through, transforming our pain. It's good when we trust our Savior's promise to forgive, to heal, to help. It's good when we rest in his all-inclusive love.
for our part of this big world as we come together to fight this monster and then heal as a community!
May the Lord bless and keep you in His LOVE!!
