Years ago, I read the true story of a devastating forest fire that destroyed the timber by which a community made their living. Everyone was devastated. A few days later, a man was walking through the ruins and saw something shining brightly in the sun. It was a vein of silver that no one knew was there. It turned out that there was more wealth in that silver than all the timber could have afforded. So, as the Bible says, praise the Lord in everything! Recently, heavy winds and rains uprooted a couple of huge trees on my property and one of the drain spouts on my home was broken. I called my "tree man" and he gave me an estimate of $1,300 just for the trees. The Lord said to call the insurance company. They sent out a nice young man who I got to share my testimony with and brought him to the knowledge that we can know that we have eternal life. Two days later, a generous check arrived from the insurance company. Thank you God! Now I have more sunshine coming into my woods where I will be able to plant beautiful flowers as I continue to re-landscape my Garden of Eden. Yes, in everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. And Lord...if there's any gold or silver on my land, please show it to me!
