One of the most vivid memories I have from a recent trip to New York City is that of a tree at the World Trade Center site that's referred to as the "Survivor Tree." On 9/11, the falling towers crushed the tree's branches and the ensuing fires scorched its stump. Rescue workers didn't think it would survive. But it did and it stands today as a testament to the city's ability to endure.
In an upcoming "Daily Light For Daily Living," Anne Graham Lotz speaks to endurance -- how He leads us to endure and not just "somehow," but to do so victoriously.
She shares about how God plants us in our faith to grow us up into "trees of righteousness" and how He uses adversity to make us strong.
There are many today facing untold adversity . . . disease, divorce, disaster and what timely reminders from Anne that as we endure challenging days, we need to spend time in His Word. It's the same message Anne shares at Just Give Me Jesus events, her books and on "Daily Light For Daily Living."
As I look back at the picture of the Survivor Tree, my prayer is that I will be mindful to learn to walk by faith . . . that I would grow up into a "tree of righteousness" and have victory over adversity--as Anne reminds us, "choosing to trust in the Lord always!"
