Just hours ago, my daughter’s temperature read below. However, this picture signifies more than simply a virus, it also reveals the thermometer of our hearts when news breaks of innocent lives taken. Just as we know our God is a consuming fire (Hebrews 12:29), we also know when the heat is just too much to handle. I pray for the families who have lost a loved one this week. The temperature of our country many feel is at an all-time high, but my prayer extends to those who do not know our Great and Mighty Lord and Savior. Just like a fire requires water to put out the flames, so do those who need love who are hurting and or crying out for answers. Only Jesus can mend a country fueled by rebellion and pride, and may we unite as a nation and love as ‘He’ first loved us.♥️
1 John 4:19 We love because he first loved us.
