“[Those who trust in the Lord] shall be like a tree planted by water, sending out its roots by the stream. It shall not fear when heat comes, and its leaves shall stay green; in the year of drought it is not anxious, and it does not cease to bear fruit. “ Jeremiah 17:8
The Bible is full of analogies and I love this one. To me, it means that those who are firmly grounded in Him (His Word, the Truth) will be able to withstand any troubles that may come because [the Lord] will sustain us and give us strength to get us through. Not only will we “get through it”, but we will “not be anxious and we will continue to bear fruit.” It might be hard to believe we can flourish when the world comes crashing down around us, but He gives us strength, courage, hope… everything we need to be what He will have us be.
And so our challenge this week is to use our “green thumbs”… use images of things that are planted, or simple incorporate green into your project.
