Blessed: Jeremiah 17:7

7 “But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
    whose confidence is in him.
They 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 17:7-8

As a gardener, this is one of my favorite verses. It’s like a word picture of trust in God. What a wonderful image of a tree planted by the water with strong roots and leaves always green. What a pleasure no worries, even in a year of drought and uncertain weather. What a joy to bear fruit in life. God lead me to this kind of confidence.
