Random Events

Chema River State Recreation Area

When we were up in Alaska last summer, I ran an ultramarathon near Fairbanks. There was a large fire burning and the race organizers had to alter the course to avoid the fire. This photo shows the fire from a distance. Though it involved thousands of acres, it was not considered a major threat and was mostly being allowed to burn unchecked. There was a nearby resort that was being protected by fire fighters. The resort was where the ultra was supposed to finish.

Random events don’t seem very random when we are directly involved or affected. It is easy to see ourselves as the center of the world and think mainly of how an event affects us personally. Very important to step back and remember that God is at the center (of everything).
