Be Still as a Tree

By Julie Brooks
We should be like the trees you created, Lord, standing still to see your beauty and work all around us, until you send your breeze; that moves our branches so we dance in the wind.  

You send birds flocking to find safety within a tree's branches; so do you send to us those that need to see your love.  

Even as leaves fall to the ground, so will trials come upon us.

If we will only trust, obey and submit to you; you will restore us, just as you restore the trees with new growth in the Spring.

But only after we have endured the Winter.


Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. Psalm 30:5
