Good day my friend,
I wake up in the night
I am distracted in the day
At times I feel awash in a sea of uncertainty.
Words I have heard,
And Yet this morning I heard again
of the Tree of Life.
Not in Genesis - at the beginning
when all is new and fresh and pleasant....
But at the end when turmoil and destruction
and everything seems to be crazy.
Then the angel showed me
the river of the water of life,
bright as crystal,
flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb
2 through the middle of the street of the city;
also, on either side of the river,
the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit,
yielding its fruit each month.
The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
The Lamb's Book of Life
The Tree of Life
As I read, listened, was tuned to
My heart filled with
The frustration and anxiety within me
A man told me the other day;
The drip, drip of the news
is like a intravenous drug
I crave it, I need to know,
I have to have the latest tidbit
and I find
the fruit of this tree
The man reminded me
Rule of thumb
spend as much time (or more)
feeding from the tree
of life (God's word is a good place to start)
than on the tree
I have found that it is not easy
To choose a slower lane
To intentionally leave behind
my FOMO (fear of missing out)
You are what I need
Your words bring Life
Your Kingdom is
Joy Romans 14:17
