Knocked down but back up again

A while back I wrote about the tree that fell down in the playground at my apartment and how they had to cut the rest of it down.

This beautiful tree lost a huge branch.

So it had to be cut down because it was rotting on the inside.

So to recap, large branch fell causing the tree to be cut down, chopped and ground to nothing. This tree is gone, or is it?

Here where a tree had fallen and was cut down to nothing is life shooting up out of the ground.

Many times in our lives we feel the pruning sheers of life cutting away at us. For some of us we feel like we are cut down to nothing and there is nothing left. Yet looking at this tree sprouting out up from the ground I am reminded that even when you seem to have lost it all and there is nothing left, do not give up and hold onto hope.

Job 14:7 For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease.

    1. Thank you when I looked out my apartment and saw something green in the playground I had to take a second look. It amazed me to see that after the tree cutters grounding the stump to nothing back in April that this sprout has grown. God is so amazing and I love how He talks to me.
