Jeremiah 17:5-8

A good friend of mine sent me this Bible verse today, and I'd like to share it with you. My prayer is that it encourages you as much as it encouraged me!

 5 This is what the LORD says:

   “Cursed is the one who trusts in man, 
who draws strength from mere flesh 

and whose heart turns away from the LORD. 

6 That person will be like a bush in the wastelands;
they will not see prosperity when it comes. 
They will dwell in the parched places of the desert,
in a salt land where no one lives.

 7 “But blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD,
 whose confidence is in him.

8 They will be like a tree planted by the water 

that sends out its roots by the stream. 
It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. 
It has no worries in a year of drought 
and never fails to bear fruit.”
