The Tree

The other day I noticed a car had crashed into a tree along the sidewalk. Everyone seemed to be fine in the vehicle, but the car was not! Later that day, I passed by the same spot and saw that the car had been towed away and that the tree still stood firm and strong - it was like nothing had bashed into it.

This whole picture reminded me that God is like aTree -  strong and secure. When we embrace the good news of Jesus, we get to rest in the shadow of the TREE.

Matthew 13:32 -  "It is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is larger than all the garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.”

The trees of the Lord are watered abundantly, the cedars of Lebanon that he planted. - Psalm 104

The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and whoever captures souls is wise. - Proverbs 11:30

May you rest in the strength of the TREE today.

Living in Grace
