The Parables of Our Lives: Praise Like the Trees

Have you ever wondered why trees grow tall?

Why they stand firm in spring, summer, winter, and fall?

They wave when the wind blows

They twinkle when it snows.

Trees cast cooling shadows in the summer heat.

They sprout leaves, bear fruit, shed leaves, and repeat.

In all that they do and all they provide

Trees are the quiet teachers of our lives.

They teach us to endure hard times and extend a helping hand

To set deep roots and care for our land.

They constantly remind us to spread beauty everywhere

To dance and wave with thankful praise even when in dispair.

Trees are gentle counselors who whisper in our ear

That hope is always near.

1 Chronicles 16:33
Then the trees of the forest will sing for joy before the Lord; For He is coming to judge the earth.

14 Days of Blessings: Day 1

Christmas is coming! Christmas is coming! People in my town appear to be frantically shopping for the perfect gift while I am trying very hard not to ignore the season this year. 

I want more than streets lined with colored lights, beautifully decorated trees, and carefully wrapped packages. I want to see wounded hearts mended. I want to hear of lost sons and daughter returning home. And I want to see my family and friends become who they were destined to be. So I’ve decided to plant seeds of hope this year.

Destiny is Now

Step into your destiny
Reach for the hope of a brighter day.
LOVE is holding your hand.
He is gently guiding the way.

Stride toward the promise.
Yield to His invitation of rest.
LOVE is whispering your name.
He’s patiently waiting with His best.

Don’t be afraid to move.
LOVE has a plan just for you.
Your future of hope is now.
Step into your future and experience a life that’s new.

Light is shining on your path.
You don’t have to wait.
LOVE has opened His doors.
Your destiny can start today.

Come, descendants of Jacob, let us walk in the light of  the LORD.

Isaiah 2:5
