Psalm 1:1-3 TLB
[1] Oh, the joys of those who do not follow evil men’s advice, who do not hang around with sinners, scoffing at the things of God. [2] But they delight in doing everything God wants them to, and day and night are always meditating on his laws and thinking about ways to follow him more closely. [3] They are like trees along a riverbank bearing luscious fruit each season without fail. Their leaves shall never wither, and all they do shall prosper.

Colossians 2:6–7
So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.

Good Morning!

Trees that are planted in good soil and have a good water supply are able to soak up water and feed on the nutrients in the soil continuously. There are days when it rains or hail storms come. There are days that harsh winds may blow leaves or branches off. There are days of drought and the heat is unbearable and days of cold winters. The seasons change and the leaves drop in the fall and come back in the spring. But the tree stands strong because it is deeply rooted and is able to withstand the seasons of life and with every season, the tree grows stronger.

Like a tree, we must be deeply rooted in God’s word. It is the river of life for us. There are going to be seasons of life that give us trials, winters, summers, drought. We’ll lose our leaves and then grow them back again. But through it all, God will continuously feed us with His Living Waters so that we continue to grow stronger and stronger with every season of life.

Today, ponder on that. What trials have you been through? What season are you in now? Have you lost your leaves, or are they springing out? Know that God has a plan for you in every season of your life. Know that seasons do change and be equipped with God’s word for every season of change in your life. Being deeply rooted in His word will make sure that you walk through every season unscathed. God is with you through it all!

I love you and am praying for you today!
