Like Oak Trees

Almost a week ago we had the privilege to visit a nursing home where some of our seniors are living right now. We brought communion and had a meaningful time together.

That morning church met in a room where the three of us heard the Word of the Lord, prayed and celebrated Communion.

It was so meaningful in so many ways, yet what really spoke to me was when I heard our friend telling us about her life. The very first words that she said were enough for me to realise that I was sitting on holy ground. She said: “every morning before I do anything I read my Bible and spend time with my Lord”.

This generation knows about the true meaning of endurance, patience and perseverance and they have so much to teach us. They are like oaks of righteousness planted by the Lord.

“… to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit; that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he may be glorified.”
(Isaiah 61:3 ESV)
