“But the godly will flourish like palm trees and grow strong like the cedars of Lebanon. For they are transplanted to the Lord’s own house. They flourish in the courts of our God. Even in old age they will still produce fruit; they will remain vital and green. They will declare, “The Lord is just! He is my rock!” Psalms 92:12-15 NLT

Good morning, DearHeart,

I so love God’s Word when His writers reference nature. He calls us … especially during emotional seasons, edge of your seat seasons, what’s coming next seasons … He calls us to connect,

reconnect,

and stay connected to Him through nature.

We’re all bumping up against each other with our agendas,

and cravings,

and ideals …
reaching clumsily for a sense of completion.
We have relationships that bond and then unwind.
We stretch our arms to grab more life,
and we give someone a black eye … offended, left out, who knows? It wasn’t intentional.

It just happened.

It will happen.

Hearts get hurt; vows are broken; sparks doused.
Being God’s Child, following His plan for your life – it leaves breakage.

Why do you need to know the certainty of hurting someone?

It helps to know …so that you don’t shut down when you need to lift off,
so that you still choose to leave the house of familiarity for a new venture God has been brewing in you, or a new mission field in a foreign country … or in your backyard, or to change course to simply make room to love Him deeper still.
Or, to place yourself back into the center of His will … the center of His peace for you.

It helps to know how His nature works when you are exploring wilderness. He gives us a grip on what we face by setting us up,

in the center of His will,

and, we find this place when we look for Him in nature.

Wake up.

Go there.

Go.
