14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight,
O LORD, my strength and my Redeemer. Psalms 19:14 (KJV)
There is a tree we pass every morning on the drive to work that I have watched through different seasons. This tree was my inspired muse for this morning. Currently she is experiencing an ugly period. Stripped bare of leaves, naked, feeling no sunlight or showing signs of life she appears dead, lifeless and without purpose.
Yet with the coming of spring she will bloom anew, this is still not her pretty season. Not with the butterflies lighting on her limbs, not with the young squirrels scampering through the leaves, not her pretty season. Come the Fall, the seeming promise of death dawns her most dazzling pretty season. Limbs bejeweled in colors of green, gold and red, sprinkled with sunlight, this is her pretty season. So like this tree the is life of some Christians. Often believing that life while we are young is the best it will ever be. Learning later that maturity, seasoning and age provide the foundation that shows our lives to be living, dying witnesses. My prayer for today is that through each coming season, my life is a witness to the goodness of God!
Making His praise glorious!
