Job 14 v 7-9: (7) For there is hope for a tree, if it is cut down, that it will sprout again, and that its tender shoots will not cease. (8) Though its roots may grow old in the earth, and its stump may die in the ground, (9) yet at the scent of water it will bud and bring forth branches like a plant.
Are we not like that too? No matter how bruised or battered we are by life and the world, there is hope! Hope in Christ! At the scent of water, God's living water, we start to shoot out roots of change, which leads to growth, which leads to foliage, and ultimately, fruit in Christ!
My encouragement to you is to search out and tap into God's living waters.
