Inspiration

Psalm 1:3 (ESV) He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither.  In all that he does, he prospers

Psalm 1:3 (AMP) And he shall be like a tree firmly planted [and tended] by the streams of water, ready to bring forth its fruit in its season; its leaf also shall not fade or wither; and everything he does shall prosper [and come to maturity].

You can’t begin a 31 day study of verse 3 without trying to understand why the verse is comparing the person to a ‘tree’.  The answer to that is found in verse 2 of the Psalm.  It states “his delight is in the law of the Lord”.  I believe for us to delight in the law of the Lord, we must have a relationship with Him.  Our relationship with Jesus is that tree and that is what I hope to explore over the next 31 days.

I love words.  I love dissecting them, discovering the meaning, playing with them – just getting to know them.  I started a search of the word ‘tree’ and ended up with a book full of ideas to relate that to our walk with the Lord.  Trees are straight, bent, tall, short, thin and fat.  Some can withstand a drought, others would die.  Some have deep roots down into the earth yet others are shallow.  Sounds quite like the human race.

I hope you enjoy the journey.  I hope I can impart some speck of knowledge or a different perspective.  That’s how I grow…in life, as a woman, wife, mother, daughter.  I know at the end of the 31 days, I will have grown a lot – like a tree.
