Devotional: If You Were A Tree

If you were a tree where would you prefer to be planted? 

Close to a stream of flowing water? 

Or in the middle of the desert? 

Likely you chose near the stream of flowing water… but in your life, you are constantly choosing the opposite. 

  • You aren’t careful who you surround yourself with
  • You don’t get the proper food and nutrients you need to survive
  • You don’t sleep enough
  • You procrastinate working out 
  • You work until you crash 
  • You think negatively 

…the list goes on. 

Fortunately, you’re not a tree.

You can make the decision today to change your circumstance, change your circle, change your eating habits, fix the way you think, etc. 

The only thing holding you back is you.

A tree grows when you water it.
