i am a tree

I want to be like a tree. Planted by streams of water. Streams of living water. And let me bear fruit, Jesus. Let me overflow with love for you. I want love and devotion for You.

Jeremiah 17:8
He 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.

Jeremiah 24:6
...I will build them up and not tear them down; I will plant them and not uproot them. I will give them a heart to know me, that I am the Lord. They will be my people, and I will be their God, for they will return to me with all their heart.

Isaiah 58:11
...You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.

Psalm 52:8
But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God's unfailing love for ever and ever.

Psalm 1:3
He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.

I want a heart to know you, Jesus.

  1. This is cool. I was looking for a picture to put on a blog post i was about to write. This morning I was reading Psalm 1 and i was thinking about how we are trees. how our leaves have seasons (seasons of our life) its all very poetic, the way God designed it. But I wanted to thank you for posting this, it was truly a blessing. :)
