Today's Devotional Thought

The Reminder of the Mesas 

I thank God 
for the deep greens
and browns of the mesas
peeking over the housetops
in the bright blue sky.

I ask the mesas,
“Are you afraid
 to be out there
standing tall and alone, susceptible
to lightning strikes and fires?”

The mesas reply, “No I’m not afraid.
God is with me and has designed me
to remind His people
that as I watch over them
He does also.

“Besides, fire cleanses me,
destroying diseases,
just as God uses the trials in your life
to build up your resistance against
 those things that would harm you.”
