LIFE FOUND IN A STUMP
Israel has fallen, the tree stands no more
The axe has been swung, and down she comes
Where the tree stood, only a stump remains
Damaged, rotting, broken and stained
And so the song is sung by the Angels tongue
I will make the rivers flow on barren heights
And springs within the valley’s
I will turn the desert into pools of water
And the parched ground into springs
See I am doing a new thing, do you not perceive
And all whom are wise shall see his glory
He set the trees together
“I will put the cedar in the wilderness
The acacia and the myrtle and the olive tree
I will place the juniper in the desert
Together with the box tree and the cypress
And though they all get cut down
And only their stumps remain
He made a promise through the ages
A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse
From his roots a Branch will bear fruit
Through Jesus hallelujah
I want to give you some insight to this deep poem full of scriptures. At a time when Israel was fallen from God, the scriptures tell us that They were still Gods chosen and our God was about to do something, send Jesus! God describes Israel like a tree cut down and left to be a stump! He speaks of a shoot that will come out of the stump bringing new life and fruit!
He also talks about trees that God, Jesus will put together which speaks of each of us and so the poem is about each of us when we feel like a cut down tree, that a savior Jesus was sent to bring a shoot from our stumps to bring fruit and new life!
The shoot is Jesus, God bless!
