Jeremiah 17:7-8: Weathering the Drought

Monday, March 19, 2018

On this Monday before Palm Sunday, we reflect on the morning’s first reading for liturgy. Today we look to one who trusts God as a model for our anxious minds and weary hearts. The LORD says . . .

I will bless the person
    who puts her trust in me.
She is like a tree growing near a stream
    and sending out roots to the water.
It is not afraid when hot weather comes,
    because its leaves stay green;
it has no worries when there is no rain;
    it keeps on bearing fruit.

We ask . . . do we believe that we will not succumb to the times of drought? Do we trust that we will weather barren days and dark nights? Are we willing to bear fruit when our resources are low? DO we send out roots to water and stretch limbs to the sky?
