I remember my time in the desert this winter. The orange and grapefruit trees are not native to Arizona. It takes time, and care to make sure there is fruit. Only by irrigation do these trees produce fruit. I also heard that if there is a chance of frost (which does happen quite often) it is better to over-water the fruit trees. Those trees filled with water can resist the frost’s danger.
So it is with us. If we are filled with God’s Word – the Living Water of Jesus – we can be better able to resist the devil and battle all the frustrations, worries and struggles in this world.
Let’s fill up today.
For those visiting please check out the posts that are linked below. And everyone loves comments.
If you write about God’s Word join us in providing your link about what God has spoken to you about this week.
Today is Sunday Stillness
Do you have a Scripture that spoke to you this week? Please link below. If you post to Twitter use #sundaystillness and @authorjaniscox.

I would love it if you would subscribe to my blog. See the sidebar to enter your email address.
Read the Sunday Stillness rules if you are new here.
I would appreciate if you would link only about God’s Word. If you have a linky party that’s okay if it is about the same thing. Please no sales or prizes. I want this to be friendly but I must ask you to abide by the rules. Others want to read God’s Word – and that is what I would like the links to be about. I must take down the links that don’t follow the rules. Thanks so much.

Missional Women – Faith Filled Fridays
I love that Psalm, Janis. I love imagining…feeling like a tree planted in Eden.
Janis, I had a couple weeks were I was off my routine with my husband gone and didn’t spend my usual mornings in God’s Word. Oh how it has been felt that it’s been missing. I needed your reminder and I get ready to start another week. I need to be filled with His Word.
Interesting facts about the orange tree. Yes, let us be filled everyday with our Living Resurrected Lord Jesus Himself, and be one with Him just like He asked our Pappa in John 17.
Like trees in a dry soil, that need to have long roots to get water, we need also our daily nourishment from God’s word _ to keep the right focus, to be filled with His hope and fruit!
