'It has no worries in a year of drought'

“But blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD,
whose confidence is in him.
They will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit.”
Ever lived through a long drought? People in parts of the world can become desperate in the lack of water.

We live through other droughts as well. Desperate in the lack of hope. Of confidence. Of relief. You name it - everyone has experienced most of those times.

Today, though, consider the words of Jeremiah. Place your trust in God. You will become like that tree - strong in confidence and ready to face the heat and drought as you confront life.
