Look at the center of the picture and see the little tree growing amongst the tires. That's the image I keep seeing in my mind's eye. And with it I see several stories....and it's at this point that my family groans... ;)
- Bloom Where You Are Planted - We've all heard the saying and we all have examples. Whether your example refers to where your home is, who your friends are, where you work - it implies a certain easygoing nature. And looking at this little tree, growing where it honestly shouldn't be able to, brings it to mind.
- He replied, "If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, 'Be uprooted and planted in the sea,' and it will obey you. Luke 17:6 WOW - that is really quite powerful. Like so many others, there's several things going on in my life right now that are causing a bit of upheaval (and my first case ever of hives - joy!). And the one thing that I always try to do is to keep my eyes open to the many things that God puts before me and this is a perfect example. This tree has been "uprooted and planted in the sea" ... so to speak ... and is there for me to witness.
I know that I'm not a gifted or eloquent writer, but the Lord has truly put this little tree on my heart.
"The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace." - Numbers 6:24-26
