No computer for five days – a bit disconnected – socially – but we are never disconnected spiritually.
A tree is a beautiful image of growth and Life. If I think for a moment of my life as if it were a tree, these are my reflections.
My growth and focus is ever UPWARD. My branches and all that my branches have grown or been nurtured to produce is OUTWARDS. To others.
The world is constantly able to ‘batter’ my branches. They can be shaken by storms and tempests and ravaged by disease and even cut off…..BUT…………
The roots of the tree are anchored deep in God. Fertilised by the Saviour’s Blood. (at the Cross of Calvary). The water of God the Holy Spirit constantly bubbles and flows.
This is the Abundant Life Christ died to bring us ALL.
May we all REJOICE in what we have and LIVE like the trunk of a tree which can be shaken but whose roots will not be moved.
You are dearly Loved. REJOICE this day.!
