White Oak in Draw Revisited
I went back to the bent White oak in a draw today. It rained last night and the brush was still wet. Getting wet didn't bother me because of the summer heat. The early morning hike beat the heat. I sat down on a log in the mud flat creek. It wasn't muddy as the dirt is hard packed and water runs off immediately. Thought about how forests will influence nature because of the respiration that is taking place as trees let off water to stay cool.
God responds to our prayers of faith. Just as a forest has an influence on nature, we influence God by our faith in Him.
2 Chronicles 16:9
"For the eyes of the Lord move to and from throughout the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His. . ."
Here is the tree I came across Christmas morning.
Below is the same White oak in early November, for comparison.
