The Giant Oak Tree…
It stole the Oak Tree’s leaves away.
Then snapped it’s boughs and pulled it’s bark, until the Oak Tree was tired and stark. But still the Oak Tree held its ground
While other trees fell all around.
The weary wind gave up and spoke,
“How can you still be standing Oak?”
The Oak Tree said anew, “I know that you can break each branch of mine in two, Carry every leaf away & shake my limbs and make me sway.
That keep growing stronger since my birth.
They are below and the deepest part of me.
The oak trees roots extend down into the ground up to two times their height.
I am not sure the oak would have survived the storm had it not been for its roots. There are many times you could have been broken by the storm, but God had a greater plan for you. Even when you have been at your worst – there is always something to be thankful for – another breath, a supportive family member, a comforting warm home.
Do we fear the wrath of the future, or do we stand tall and trust that we will stand strong during the hardest of storms.
The answer is to learn from the mighty oak tree and plant ourselves on solid ground with solid Core Values (get My Grateful Book to choose your own Core Values to stand tall!) that keep you standing and walking straight.
He will catch up. Don’t worry or watch him. Focus on those roots…growing deeper and deeper and stronger and stronger.
You got this!
