Trees rustle in Morning’s strong wind.
Sway high above, into bright, blue Sky–
Pale green against bright blue.
Leaves sing their rustling song.
Clouds quickly scatter,
Until Sky is clear.
The Birds sing.
The Trees sing.
This morning is a beautiful spring day. The sky is a clear blue. The branches on our sweetgum trees out back are swaying in the wind– rustling, singing.
It reminds me of one of my favorite things that Jesus taught.
Jesus was riding a lowly colt toward His dangerous destination–Jerusalem, where His physical life on earth would soon be snuffed out.
A multitude greeted him, spreading their cloaks along the road. Rejoicing and praising God, loudly.
“Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!”
“Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!”
Some Pharisees in the crowd angrily demanded that Jesus make the people be quiet.
Now, catch what Jesus says. Listen carefully:
“I tell you,” he replied, “If they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.” Luke 19:28-43
Isn’t that amazing?
Even if the entire human race ceases and desists in praising God, He will still be praised!
Sometimes the we seem to be losing the fight against the Light. But take encouragement from this: no matter what, God is still Lord, and He will still be praised!
