They will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not faint.
"Today's Thought" is a collection of daily reflections on the Lord as I spend time with him each morning on my walks. Thanks for visiting. Please feel free to share comments and thoughts-Rob
When Christ was on earth, the dogwood grew
To a towering size with a lovely hue.
Its branches were strong and interwoven
And for Christ's cross its timbers were chosen.
Being distressed at the use of this wood,
Christ made a promise which still holds good;
"Not ever again shall the dogwood grow
To be large enough for such a tree, and so
Slender and twisted it shall always be
With cross-shaped blossoms for all to see.
The petals shall have bloodstains marked in brown
And in the blossoms center a thorny crown.
All who see it will think of me,
Nailed to a cross from a dogwood tree.
Protected and cherished this tree shall be
A reflection of all of my agony."
Easter will soon be here...perhaps I will associate the lovely dogwood blossoms with the One who truly is Man's best Friend !
1 Peter 2:24 who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.
And listen toyour father.
3 " Reuben, you are my firstborn,
My might and the beginning of my strength,
The excellency of dignity and the excellency of power.
