In his despair, Job envies a tree.
For when a tree is cut down, new sprouts mean resurrection and hope.
Job yearns to be hidden away in a place where devastation cannot touch him.
Hidden from harshness, Job anticipates vindication.
Before God and before Job’s friends, Job anticipates vindication to come.
But I know that my redeemer is alive and afterward he’ll rise upon the dust. (Job 19:25 CEB)
We gather together in this time in which a fallen tree, begins to sprout anew.
Praise God for this time of Holy Transformation!
