Tree
a simple man...
It all started out
Thinking about the Bible
How God is compared to a pillar of fire and smoke.
Jesus is compared to a shining light.
And the
Holy

Spirit
is compared to living water
.
So I was thinking and walking
And remembering how
we
are compared to
trees
in Revelations
When I stopped to look at a tree
I stopped to really LOOK at a tree...
So what really goes into a tree being a tree?

Leaves on the branches
each tree is different
No two are the same
If it is pruned...
It just bears MORE fruit..
So... what are the basics that we need for a tree?

Good soil. Not too hard, not too soft.
Rain every now and then. Not too much, not too little.
Sun, the more the better.
Protection from the wind.
and that's about it...

Scientists to this very day are still stumped by the process by which trees take the light of the sun and the water of the soil and combine it into usable energy.
It has
Often a young sapling will grow in the shadow of a bigger tree
The Miracle of trees
Bears fruit
So this tree sucks up water with it's roots
and draws the water up
Way up !
To the very tips of it's reach!
Making sure that every single leaf gets the precious sunlight
In spite of the resistance of the constant gravity.
In each leaf
Millions of
miracles
Taking
Water
and
Light
and making
energy
This energy gives
life
to
ants
and
birds
and all manner of
creatures.
creatures that live
on
,
in
and
under
the tree.
Even when the tree
falls

life
springs forth...

so....
lets
switch
things.
Soil

Tree
Me
and see what
happens
So I spread my roots both
Wide
And Deep
So when
STORMS
come...

I can
STAND
against the winds of the world.
Some parts may feel dry.
And some parts seem to
BURST
with
Life
Saturated
But every part helps when the
storms
come.
And they will come...
So I take
all
I find in the
word

And I draw it into
every
part of me
the parts
people see..

and the parts that people do not...
to the very tips of my
branches
.
to the very edge of my reach.
I know that there's a lot beyond my reach...
But that's ok.
Today
I can reach where I couldn't
yesterday
Tomorrow
I will reach what I couldn't
today
Each day a new
dawn
breaks

and I can reach for the
glory
of God afresh

On some days
clouds
fill the sky...

And it's hard to find
Him
...

But even if I can't see
Him
,

I know He's still there.
it's ok.... because the
storms
Brings the rain
That
soaks
the
word
...
And I'm suddenly
Growing
to
heights
and
depths
I couldn't reach before...
So while I'm
drawing
from the
word,
and reaching for His
glory
...
I get to a point where it's
beyond
my
reach
out of
my

control.
Then
a little miracle
happens
God creates
LIFE
where it wasn't before
and I just can't help
but
bear

fruit
love
joy
peace
patience
kindness
goodness
faithfulness
gentleness
self control
and the more I let Him
prune off
the parts of me that are unhelpful, the more
fruit
I bear.
There is
MORE
life in me when I let Him
BREAK
me.
But that's because He is a good gardener and He knows what He's doing.
Now I've come to
realize

just like I
grew
up in the
shadow

Mom
of my
Life
Protection
Shelter
So too, others grow in the shadow of me.
Me
And one day they will be my
reward
in
heaven.
so the next time you look at a
tree
...
Think about
how He made it just right
to bring you a little bit closer to Him.
