“Blessed is the one

    who does not walk in step with the wicked

or stand in the way that sinners take

    or sit in the company of mockers,

but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,

    and who meditates on his law day and night.

That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,

    which yields its fruit in season

and whose leaf does not wither—

    whatever they do prospers.” ~ Psalm 1:1-3


Behold the trees,

How they grow in majesty;

Come now, My child,

Come listen to Me:


Be like these trees

Firmly rooted in the ground

That no matter what comes

You are safe and sound.


Be rooted in Me,

Abide here in the True Vine,

Remember I am yours,

And you are Mine.


For when you are rooted,

The winds may blow,

Yet strongly you will stand,

Tall you will grow.


When you remain in Me,

And I in you,

You weather the storms

With love pure and true.


When My living water

Nourishes your every root,

Precious and eternal

Is your spiritual fruit.


So come now, My child,

Learn from the trees,

Trust always in Me

That My heart you please.


For then strong you will be,

Taller than trees that tower,

Rich in My grace,

Radiant in My power.


Bear fragrant fruit of joy,

Colorful blossoms of love,

Stretch to the sky,

To the heavens above.


With your head in the clouds,

Your feet on the ground,

Behold My miracles

Abounding all around.


Yea, as you behold the trees,

Remember My majesty;

Come and blossom, My child,

Be rooted in Me.

    Psalm 1 is one of my favorites. In fact, I was just praying today that I wanted to be like a tree that continues to bearing fruit long after I’m dead. I can only do that if I’m rooted in the love of Jesus.

    Have a Victorious Day!
