Were you the tree?

It’s really starting to feel like we’re coming out of this Covid darkness. The increased optimism and sense of normalcy is starting to become more and more evident with each passing day. This feeling is sneaking up on me, almost to the point that I’m forgetting how grateful I should be. I guess I was in an emotional fog for a year, but I didn’t go nuts and I didn’t panic, I just waited and waited. I wanted to find a Bible verse that kind of fit the waiting pattern I was in, so I googled “Bible verses about unexpected blessings” and found a great one on a site called “A love worth living for.” It’s Jeremiah 17 7-8…

“Blessed are those who trust in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord. They shall be like a tree planted by water, sending out its roots by the stream. It shall not fear when heat comes, and its leaves shall stay green; in the year of drought it is not anxious, and it does not cease to bear fruit.”

Nice, huh? I hope I was this tree during the year of drought(Covid). I guess my fruit production did slow down, but it surely didn’t stop. Thank you God for the end of this time of great uncertainty and fear. And thank you for reading my 113th blog.
