“They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.” (Isaiah 61:3b, NIV)
Mighty oaks from little acorns grow
Leaf by leaf, branch by branch,
A process slow
and almost unbelievable that He
from just one seed brings forth a tower tree.
The mighty oak, if only it could speak,
would tell of times when faith and hope grew weak.
But though challenged by the tempest or the drought
the stately oak would urge us not to doubt.
For throughout the trials, the troubles, and the tests
God prospers or withholds as He sees best.
If we like little acorns will press forward
ever looking upward, reaching toward
great victories o’er discouragements and sorrows
Then we shall be as mighty oaks tomorrow.
