Like a Tree

He 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

*****************

Like a Tree

*****************

Grow me Lord

 like a tree

that reaches upward to You

and outward to others

with roots anchored

securely and deeply

wrapped around

 your Rock of Truth

~

Grow me Lord

not rigid as a pharisee

or rootless

like a tossing tumbleweed

blown this way and that

by winds of time

but living and limber

moving graciously

 within your love as mine

~

Grow me Lord

 to thrive through

all seasons of your will

and like a tree

a place for sojourners to rest

 an aviary of nests

where newness blossoms

to encourage others

by your Spirit’s power

to walk with You

 in faithfulness.

There have been difficulties brought upon some Christians who are being lured into doctrines that focus not on the Solid Rock of Christ but on either words, works, or wonders.

If we stop and remember how Jesus reacted to both legalism and those who sought signs and wonders, we will recognize that to pursue either is not to seek God.

How sad that the watching world does not always find the church busy about the Father’s business. Let us love Jesus and set aside anything that hinders our wise walk with our Lord.

We are to worship God and not faith, not doctrine, or anything else.
