“But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God; I trust in and confidently rely on the loving kindness and mercy of God forever and ever.” Psalm 52:8 (Amplified)
Ever thought of yourself as a tree? We could actually learn a lot from trees. They grow up toward the heavens and their creator, their branches seem to be reaching up to God. When the wind and rain storm against them, they sway and bow, but after the storm they bounce back. They bud and bloom putting off wonderful fragrances we love to smell. They provide shade in the heat of the summertime, comfort to those who go beneath their limbs.
All the things a tree does we can do when we trust in and confidently rely on God.
