I’m in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for a few days with my sisters. It’s our first sisters weekend and we are having an incredible time together. We talk, shop, talk, eat out, talk, watch movies, and talk. We discuss things that some avoid like money, relationships, and politics. Life throws lots of curve balls along the way making us all conclude how much we need God. My conclusion after every topic is to pray more about that.
“Why does God allow adversity?” one sister asked. I told about the protected biological environment that discovered palm trees needed storms to survive. Without winds and tropical storms, the palm trees looked normal, but lacked deep roots. The pressure forced the palm tree to grow deeper in order to survive.
God, None of us like adversity, but may we be deeply rooted in You and not only survive, but flourish and be fruitful.
