palm tree.

taken from KLove:
have you ever seen a palm tree in the midst of a great storm?
that tree may be bent so far over that it’s almost touching the ground,
but when the wind finally stops, 
that palm tree bounces right back up.
what’s interesting is that while the palm tree is hunched over under the pressure of the storm,
it is actually growing stronger.
the reason God said we’d flourish like a palm tree [psalm 92:12]
is because He knew there would be difficult times. 
he knew things would come against us to try to steal our joy and victory.
God said, “you’re going to be like a palm tree because when the storms of life blow,
you are going to come right back up stronger than before.” 
nothing can hold you back!
no weapon formed against you will prosper.
as you reflect on the events over the past year, 
remember that the storms you have encountered have only made you stronger.
you are wiser,
you are more alive,
and you are headed for victory.
your brightest days are right in front of you! 
always remember that with God on your side,
nothing can hold you back!

my sister and i with our painted palms in september. 
i wrote psalm 92:12 on the bottom of that painting!
