Yana: (looking out the window) “Bare trees….I wonder why pine trees 🌲 don’t loose their leaves.
Me: Idk, when you touch them they are tough too. I guess they are just made for this climate….
You are made for this climate. Whatever season of life that you are in, with Jesus…you were made for it.
It’s around 7pm in the evening in the surrounding areas of Detroit, and it’s 24 degrees with a windchill that makes it feel like 15 degrees. Most trees are bare and the streets are clear of pedestrians. It’s March, the winter hasn’t left yet but pine trees remain green with leaves. Here is another fact about pine trees that I found interesting:
-Pines produce resin that flows from the injured bark. Unfortunately, resin is highly flammable and it facilitates spreading of the forest fire.
Right now could be a time in your life that you are hurt/injured. Fortunately for you, your injury makes you highly flammable!
- Hebrews 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.
- Psalm 104:4 Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:
- 1 Kings 18:38 Then the fire of the Lord fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench. 39 And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces: and they said, The Lord, he is the God; the Lord, he is the God.
Spread the fire of God like a wild fire. Be that sacrifice that gives God the glory through this/each season of life! People will see the fire and glorify our God! You were made for this! We were made for this!
Pine trees are a type of Evergreen, which is what Yana and I saw. An Evergreen is always green and has leaves throughout the whole year.
As an Evergreen stays green year round, you stay red because your covered by the blood in Jesus Christ.
As an Evergreen has leaves throughout the whole year, you will always produce leaves/fruit when your connected to the vine, Jesus Christ.
You were made for this.
You were made for this climate.
Just like a Pine tree. Just like an Evergreen.
Can I say another thing???
No matter what….God is still God!
