When last Fall came about and all the trees began to turn and lose, I waited for these leaves to hit the ground. As I look out our window this morning, at this non-evergreen, many thoughts come to mind. Better yet, echos of Gods Word stirred my soul. "I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits, and in His Word I put my hope." I will stand strong, letting nothing good of myself fall prey to this world, this society, to any ill. "I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing." Amen, Lord, I will abide in You. Ever connected will my Faith keep me to You. "He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper." My leaves shall not wither, as long as I am in You, God. Thank You for making me strong enough to weather, not wither, in these trying times. "But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God; I trust in the mercy of God forever and ever." Lord God, You are my Trust! You are my Hope! You are my Everything!! "For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, Which spreads out its roots by the river, And will not fear when heat comes; But its leaf will be green, And will not be anxious in the year of drought, Nor will cease from yielding fruit." Let me be ever useful to You and Your will, Lord, regardless of season and circumstance. You sit above all, God. There is no trial, no issue, not trouble that is greater than You! Above ALL, You stand!! "Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand." Stand, stand, simply stand! In God's name, stand! On God's Word, stand!
This tree says to me, it is not like the others. Furthermore, "But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;" This tree caught my eye like a city on a hill; "You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden." This tree.......Those who have eyes, let them see.
Those who have ears, let them hear.......
