Like a tree planted by the water

This has been a strange and stressful week. I find this encouraging.

Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord,
Whose confidence is in him.
He will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends its roots by the stream…
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit.
–Jeremiah 17:7-8

I want to be like the tree, strategically placed, with deep roots, who can weather a temporary storm. I want to be strong enough to survive a year-long drought without losing my spirit and my joy.
