Blessed are Those Who Trust in the Lord

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord. He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for it remains green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.”

Jeremiah 17:7-8 ESV

After reading this scripture it dawned on me that my fellow believers at St. Timothy’s are living examples of this verse. I’ve been encouraged by reading the daily devotionals where your trust is proclaimed even during the heat of the times we live. I see fruit growing as I watch the online services present grace and truth on a weekly basis. It is evident the roots of community are deep as ministries adapt and grow in new ways. The beautiful green growth of Gods church during this time of drought on display at St. Timothy’s is faith building. 

Most of all I’m inspired by how my fellow brothers and sisters in the Lord have chose faith over fear. I’m blessed by their trust in the Lord and strengthened in my faith by their examples to trust him more.

Dear Jesus,

What a blessing to be a part of the St. Timothy’s community. I’m especially grateful for the faithful witness of your church in this place. May we continue as your church to bear fruit and bless our neighbors with your hope and love.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
