From Pastor’s Desk:
“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord And whose trust is the Lord. “For he will be like a tree planted by the water, That extends its roots by a stream And will not fear when the heat comes; But its leaves will be green, And it will not be anxious in a year of drought Nor cease to yield fruit. Jeremiah 17:7-8 NASB
Trees and vegetation grow, and grows greener, when near the water. The root of that which grows by water is deep and sturdy. The heat of the day does not affect it. When it becomes dormant during the winter months, it awaits the time when it can flourish with buds anew and fresh upon the arrival of spring.
May we be like the tree and vegetation planted by the streams of life that God provides in a sometimes hot and barren place. There are those times of dormancy when it feels like we’ll never “bud” again, as it seems like winter will never end. Be assured that God has set the seasons in motion, and “spring” will come. Wait for it! It will come, but in its due season.
Trust in the LORD! You will be blessed!
