Blessed are those who trust in the LORD, whose trust is the LORD. They shall be like a tree planted by water. (Jeremiah 17:7-8 NRSV)
Since we are talking about getting the proper nourishment, today, I thought I would share with you eight dieting tips that I picked up recently. Tip 1: If no one sees you eat it, it has no calories. Tip 2: If you drink a diet soda with a candy bar, they will cancel each other out. Tip 3: Calories don't count if you eat with someone and you both eat the same amount. Tip 4: Food taken for medicinal purposes does not count. This includes toast, hot chocolate, and Sara Lee chocolate cake. Tip 5: If you fatten up everyone around you, you'll look thinner. I hope you find these tips helpful. They work for me!

The prophet Jeremiah is talking about nourishment in our lesson for the day. He tells us that the person who trusts in man is like a shrub in the desert; he shrivels up and dies. But the person who trusts in God is like a tree planted by the water; he is nourished, refreshed, in continual contact with the source of life and renewal. He doesn't have to fear drought or heat, for he is connected to a never-failing source of sustenance.

We have nothing to fear if we are connect God's presence.

Dear God, may I draw myself closer to you each day. Amen.
