I want to be a tree.


I do so love trees. Growing up in the desert,they became an anomaly to me.

This morning I took a walk with the Lord. I usually bring my iPod but today I didn’t.  Spending time in Prayer without distraction instead.

We spoke of many things.

I’m constantly having a strange inner dialog of late.

Something like…”Why do i pray that way? He knows “He’s Father God”, so why do I say it over and over?…”

Eventually though, my mind lets go and I just talk to HIM.

Maybe that’s what He’s trying to teach me, to just let go and speak…to commune with HIM.

I prayed that my loved ones would be trees today and that I would be one too.

“Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,
but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
    which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
    whatever they do prospers.

I want that.

To be PLANTED, that I Yield Fruit in season, that I do not wither, that I prosper!

And that “just as received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live MY LIFE  in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as I WAS taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.”

I love how He speaks through His word, don’t you?
