As I drove thought the forest today I saw so many trees of all sizes. I felt surrounded by the greenery. I wondered how old they were. Were they planted by men or by nature. I was memorized at how the sun reflected through the branches. as I neared the edges of the mountain I began to see some trees growing sideways, and some suspended in the air by rocks, with their roots exposed reaching: some several feet down, some finally embedding in soil, and some dangling free attached to nothing. My first reaction was I need to bring a camera next time I come this way, and my second was how sad…. The poor trees…. It made me think of all the people searching for meaning in life, searching for somewhere to root and grow. The whole reason this blog, this page, and now the book was being created… My heart broke for those treesa. Will the roots be able to find the dirt they seek, or will they become frail and end up dying because of their lack of need.
For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit. ~Jeremiah 17:8 (KJV)
I see so many people hurting in this way too.. I want to scream, Your not alone!!! You are loved beyond our physical comprehension and mental understanding. I so desperately want you to find love and a companion in Jesus as I have. The knowledge and the relationship changed my life for the better and I wish for you if you don’t know Jesus to have a relationship and life changing love…
The Lord appeared to him from far away. I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you. ~Jeremiah 31:3 (ESV)
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you” ~Mathew 7:7 (KJV)
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. As the Scriptures tell us, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be disgraced.” Jew and Gentile are the same in this respect. They have the same Lord, who gives generously to all who call on him. For “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” ~Romans 10: 9-13 (KJV)
God bless you Today and Always,
