Jeremiah 17: 7 and 8
“But blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. He will be like a tree planted by the water and 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.”
This verse is so valuable to all of us who are facing difficult times or are stressed or anxious during our current situation. With yet another term looking to be taken over by remote learning and Stage 4 lockdowns, it can be so easy to retreat inside ourselves and become overwhelmed by everything going on in the world. The bible reading says though, that if we trust in the Lord, if we have faith and confidence, no matter what happens in our life, no matter how big the obstacles seem to be, we will always get through it with His help.
So, this term, let us all rely on His strength, His wisdom, His support and His guidance, through both the good times and the droughts.
God bless you all.
