i mean they're beautiful and i love seeing purple flowers fall off trees to make my way to class a bit lively and mystical.
now, the image of a tree has been something that reminds me of my journey with God. there was a picture of a tree on a flyer in my room, and seeing it stopped me. i can't really explain why, but after doing a little research, i dare say this is why:
"She will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit" (Jeremiah 17:8).
As I'm looking forward to next year, I want to be like this tree, one that does not fail to bear fruit (which means I'd bear fruit all the time, yes?) and that I would not fear as a drought comes.
Jesus, I want to trust who You have proven yourself to be in my life. I want to be like a tree planted by water.
