Tag Archives: Oak Trees

Standing Tall

My insides feel drained.  Lifeless. Tired.

I saw this tree.  It looked like I felt at that very moment.  Alone.  Exposed. Small.  Insignificant.

Ever felt that way?

I came to my favorite quiet spot.  A simple chair under an old oak.  Its branches like arms stretching out to me.  Welcoming me into the fold.

I sat basking in the sun.  I enjoyed the cool December breeze…. the refreshing smell of the outdoors.

Then I am reminded of Isaiah 61 and the reference to the Oaks of Righteousness. The oak tree is a symbol of strength and endurance.  With God, I can be like this strong oak….. “a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.” Isaiah 61:3

Enjoy your day….. God bless……
