Recently the men in our family celebrated their 80th and 90th birthdays. These men remind me of mighty trees that always stand a little taller or stretch themselves a little further than the others. In all these years they have accomplished much, living good lives, bringing immense blessings to their immediate and extended families. Our lives are so much fuller and richer because of them.
Ruth 4:15 - He will renew your life and sustain you in your old age.
Every road leads to some place, a destination in life. It may not be the path you want to be on, but it is the road you were chosen to be on. You can either take a different route, stop to rest a while, or stay on the path and enjoy the scenery.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways submit to him and he will make your paths straight.
Are we little or big seeds in this journey called Life?
My interest lies in the littlest of seeds that grow into large oaks or mighty trees over time.
Let us acknowledge the LORD; let us press on to acknowledge him. As surely as the sun rises, he will appear; he will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth.
