Have you heard the true story of Squanto and the Mayflower Pilgrims?
I commend to you a short article by Eric Metaxas:
Through tragedy and pain, God prepared a Patuxet native, Tisquantum (the English called him "Squanto"), to change history, enabling the desperate Pilgrims to survive the harsh New World winter of 1621. Much like Joseph of the Old Testament, Squanto's story shows us how God weaves the circumstance of our lives for a greater purpose, His story.
As you celebrate Thanksgiving this year, remember that God works all things together for His good, and be thankful.
He's still writing the story.
