Once a month I try to take some time in the woods to meet with Jesus. It gets me away from the house with its distractions, and helps me keep my attention on the Lord. There is much to be learned by spending time among the trees. One of the ways He speaks to me is through nature. I found the perfect spot, but had to make my way through many spider webs to get there. Before sitting, I looked around at my surroundings, and right above me was a cypress tree with a large birds nest. I decided to take a picture of it. As I was taking the picture, I noticed another nest, this one was a squirrel nest, so of course, I need a picture of them both together. Then I noticed another one! Three tall trees, each with a nest! I got all kinds of meanings for this, but today I got His answer! God planted a branch on a mountain, and under Him, we would be protected. That branch was Jesus, and He is a noble cedar and our protection. Rest easy today my fellow Christians, we are safe.
On the mountain height of Israel will I plant it, that it may bear branches and produce fruit and become a noble cedar. And under it will dwell every kind of bird; in the shade of its branches birds of every sort will nest. Ezekiel 17:23
