When Life Bends the Willow Tree

Sunday Scripture

DSC_8772

He took also of the seed of the land, and planted it in a fruitful field; he placed it by great waters, and set it as a willow tree.

Ezekiel 17:5

Willows are my favorite tree. I love how their branches hang low and sway with the gentlest of winds. They are beautiful. And even when the winds pick up and other limbs and branches break, the willow just keeps swaying. Life blows trouble and challenges our way. May we, like the willow, sway when it hurts, yet remain firmly planted in the grace of God knowing that no wind can come our way outside of God’s watch care.
