The Juniper Tree

The Juniper Tree

One day not long ago, I found myself
brooding, beneath a juniper tree
Because things in life had gone awry
a quick solution… I failed to see

So I sat, indulging in my own self pity
unmindful of the blessing I had received
Saying to myself… woe is me
I may stay forever…. just never leave

My prayer hadn’t yet, been answered
in anguish, I wiped away a tear
Lord, I’m feeling so alone and deserted
and you said, you’d always be here

I wait for you, to make a move
what is it Lord, that I’m not getting
Nothing seems to be changing
so now I’m just sitting here, fretting

Above me the branches began to rustle
and I heard the Lord’s voice
My child, why are you just sitting there
stand up… stand up and rejoice

I sent my words to instruct you
and my holy spirit, to guide your way
No matter what may come across your path
I’ll walk with you, day after day

Take a better look, at that juniper tree
for it is, of my own creation
A place where you may come, to find rest
when you look in the right direction

The right direction, what did that mean
I looked all about, hoping to see
Then my eyes rested on the branches
of a redefined…. juniper tree

What I saw, made my eyes widen
as the spirit of revelation came over me
I saw his words written upon the branches
for Jesus, IS .… my juniper tree

His words are my bread when I’m hungry
his spirit is water for my thirst
I will never lack, nor want for anything
when I trust, and put him first
