Am so excited to be back like i promised earlier this morning, now am back with another interesting post with a topic ”The Tree”.
I have this Tree analogy when I think of the people in my life, be it friends, family, acquaintances, employees, co-workers, whomever…
They are all placed inside what i call my ‘Tree test’, it goes like these:
Some people come into your life and they are like leaves on a tree. They are only there for a season. You can’t depend on them or count on them because they are weak and only there to give you shade. Like leaves, they are there to take what they need and as soon as it gets cold or a wind blows in your life they are gone.
You can’t be angry at them, it’s just who they are and what they are. So they don’t need to be blame.
There are some people who come into your life and they are like branches on a tree. They are stronger than leaves, but you have to be careful with them.
They will stick around through most seasons, but if you go through a storm or two in your life it’s possible that you could lose them. Most times they break away when it’s tough. Although they are stronger than leaves, you have to test them out before you run out there and put all your weight. But again, you can’t be mad with them, it’s just who they are.
If you can find some people in your life who are like the roots of a tree then you have found something special. Like the roots of a tree, they are hard to find because they are not trying to be seen. Their only job is to hold you up and help you live a strong and healthy life.
If you thrive, they are happy. They stay low key and they don’t let the world know that they are there. And if you go through an awful storm they will hold you up, their job is to hold you up, Come what may, and to nourish you, feed you and water you.
Just as a tree has many limbs and many leaves, there are few roots.
*Now look at your own life. How many leaves branches and roots do you have??
*what are you in other people’s lives?
Let’s thank God for the Roots!
….. I fall… I rise…I make mistakes….I live…. I learn, I’ve been hurt, but I’m still alive.
I’m human, I am not perfect, but I’m thankful!
Thank you Jesus.! Pls remember to share this post to your friends in any of the social site, they will need it too! God bless you more as you do (AMEN).
