There is a “gal”….and she is someone I aspire to be like.
You can read about her in Psalm 1:3.
“That person (I prefer to call her…That Gal) is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither-Whatever they do prospers.”
That Gal…she has her roots planted in a water source that never runs dry. Her life bears fruit in every season and she has enough stamina that allows her to stay the course. Others look at her and see one who is prospering, not struggling just to get by. The envy of many; her secret lies beneath the surface, in what (or should I say, in WHO) she has chosen to be rooted/anchored into.
The health of a tree is dependent upon its root system. Roots bring nourishment to every branch and they bring stability when there are forces that attempt to uproot the tree. Sure, we enjoy the beauty of lush green leaves, or textured tree trunks that are dark with dew and having screen savers celebrating beautiful fall foliage. However…
…….it is the root system that determines the health of the tree.
