When the wind blows hard on a tree


"When the wind blows hard on a tree,
the roots stretch and grow the stronger.
Let it be so with us. Let us not be weaklings,
yielding to every wind that blows,
but strong in spirit to resist."
- Amy Carmichael

"The righteous will flourish like a palm tree,
they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon;
planted in the house of the LORD,
they will flourish in the courts of our God."
Psalm 92:12-13

Jehovah always let me keep my calmness
which headwind I also get.
Let the difficulties in my life making me strong.
Lead me not into temptation and give that I do not fall into the trap of this world.
that I can head to the gates with chin up and will be allowed to enter
your courts, giving you glory and praising Your Name.
