The Tree

soaking in the word of God
deepens the depth
and breadth of hidden roots,
intimacy with the spirit of God
grows the height and length
of sun-hungry limbs,
being filled and overflowing
with the love of God
makes the whole tree burst
and blossom with life,
delight yourself in these
and he will honour you
with masterful pruning
for seasons of outrageous fruitfulness

by Michael Sawh

I thought members of our church family might appreciate this poem.
