Steady-Five Minute Friday
It's here! Summer vacation has begun and what a great prompt to mull over in this season of harvest. I actually had enough time to write this morning, so here is my posting for ....
Can you picture an oak or an evergreen firmly planted? The evergreens stay green no matter what season it is. Psalm 1 describes trees firmly planted by the water. Their leaves never wither.
I also love to think of Amber, the draft horse I ride. Strong, but gentle and very reliable. She doesn't spook easily, but goes where I lead her. On trails, she is great. Kids love her and they even slide off the back of her.
We all need that place, that center to be anchored. I think others need to see it, too. Easier said then done, but in times when everything around us is literally being shaken, we need to hold onto that which remains.
Psalm 1:3 "And he will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, Which yields its fruit in its season, And its leaf does not wither; And in whatever he does, he prospers."
Hebrews 12:27 " And this expression,'Yet once more, denotes the removing of those things, which can be shaken, as of created things, in order that those things which cannot be shaken may remain."
