At least there is hope for a tree:
If it is cut down, it will sprout again,
and its new shoots will not fail.
Its roots may grow old in the ground
and its stump die in the soil,
yet at the scent of water it will bud
and put forth shoots like a plant. (Job 14:8,9 NIV)
No matter how barren and lifeless life can seem, at the scent of water life can grow. Susan Essex shares a raw and real message that everyone knows the times of despair when even prayer is painful but all can find hope again.
