This tree stands tall a few meters from my house. From a distance it might not look very strong but it has been there for as long as I can remember. During some of my lowest moments I sit looking at it and it reminds me that whatever challenges am facing, they are just there for a moment and they will pass. Just like the tree which has stood there for years and persevered strong winds, floods and the scorching sun, I will survive through whichever tribulation is passing my way because my roots which are strengthened by my faith in Christ, my family and friends who come to my rescue will keep me grounded and I will move on to a new sunny day.
Remember to smile each day however gloomy it may be.
