Today I stare out my window. I watch this tree, and its been some time though. I think to my myself that Glory be to God the way He sometimes sends us signs that leave us in awe! Coming back to the reality let’s get this straight. He is the creator and His creation He creates. This tree is a creation and it grows. It has branches and leaves that everyone knows. When the season changes the leaves fall down. At times when there is a heavy storm the branches also break down. When the leaves fall down they get no attention. Because they leave now but new ones come back the next season. But what happens when a big branch breaks down? Everyone notices the empty space… some may even frown.
Now lets come back to us and understand the message through this, That tree is you and the leaves are a list. People come and go but there is always a next round. When new people replace the old ones and you have no wound. But there are some people that become the branches of you. Your family, your friends and God knows who. What happens when they decide to break away? Just like the branches they don’t tell the tree first…. that we are about to leave you so please forgive us.
Once that branch breaks away do you find it hard to stand straight?. No of course not! because that’s not your way! But now the branch is gone and there is that empty space. You already grew that part so you don’t know how to replace. All you can do is wait and watch instead of knowing what to do next. That is God’s way of working so just be patient and that’s it! If one branch breaks down another is growing somewhere else. So stop being sad about what left … it left because it didn’t fit!
Now see it’s just few branches compared to thousand leaves. Do the same with your life so later you won’t have to grieve. The bigger the branch the bigger the empty space will be, Make the people the leaves and just know… that through out your life they will come and go. If they become the branches you will be hurt. but it was God’s will so in Him you must trust!
