“A tree’s job is not to try to bear fruit; the tree’s job is to abide near the river. And the fruit does not ripen overnight…Anytime you see life flourishing, it is receiving nourishment from beyond itself.” – John Ortberg from “The Me I Want to Be”
It takes some of the pressure off to know that I’m not responsible for having it all figured out. My mind will race a million miles a minute trying to figure out what I could be doing better, how to make my life look different. It’s good to be reminded that my job is to stay as close to him as I possibly can. If I just focus on that, it’ll always be enough.
