I am Like a Palm Tree

Monday, June 02, 2014

I'm discovering something about my spiritual strength. Just want to share.

I am like a palm tree. Great roots and strong trunk. Able to withstand harsh storms in life as the palm in a hurricane or typhoon. My fronds whip around in the storm, and I hold on to most of them. My Father in heaven has given me faith; a deep abiding faith that during and after a storm holds tight to the One who gives me strength. Through storms and trade winds, (the many worries that toss my mind about, and the harsher storms such as my bipolar mind, my battles with weight, and relationship issues)I may falter and worry, but always go back to knowing in my heart of hearts that I am cared about and can find peace in the midst of life. I am strong and resilient as the palm. I bask in the Son (sun) and hope to give others inspiration to stand firm and hold on to the faith in their heart.
