Wouldn’t you like to be like a flourishing tree?
Well, that is God’s will for you and it is absolutely possible!
Psalm 92:3 says: They are planted in the house of the Lord. They flourish in the courts of God.

One of the keys to flourishing is found in Psalm 1:1-3. This has been my Scripture for the year, so I’ve been meditating on it a lot lately. Recently, while on vacation, God gave me further insight into how to be like a flourishing tree, as I observed the beautiful, huge cypress trees that were growing along the Cypress Creek just down the hill from the inn where we stayed. So I captured my thoughts on the spot with this Facebook Live video.
Watch it below:
As I explain in the video, according to Psalm 1:1-3, one of the keys to becoming a flourishing tree is delighting in The Word of God (remember that Jesus is The Word of God!)
Earlier this year I did an entire workshop on how to “Delight in The Word of God thru Color & Creativity”. I shared 6 keys to delighting in the Lord, as well as practical and creative tips to help you fall in love and stay in love with The Word of God. I shared coloring tips and techniques, how to choose a color palette, and how to take better & prettier sermon & Bible study notes that will help burn the info into your memory. And I inspired the women present to dream a little by thinking about the following questions:
- What if you were a flourishing tree?
- What if you had great success and prospered in all you did?
- What if God gave you the desires of your heart?
- What if you had corageous faith like Joshua did?
- What if you had the audacity to do mighty exploits in the name of Jesus, like the Apostle Paul?
This video is not for sale anywhere. However, for a limited time, you can get it as part of The Flourish Conference All-Access Bundle.
The Flourish Conference is a FREE online conference for women who desire to passionately pursue God and his Word. They have sought out remarkable women from all over the country who have encountered many of life’s challenges. These tenacious ladies have pressed into God’s Word and His promises rather than give into defeat.
Over the course of 5 days, 15 speakers (including me) offer hope as they share candidly about their brokenness that became new life through the power of a faithful God. Sharing their personal stories with the desire that you too may flourish in faith, family, and life. These ladies transparently open the stories of their lives: the good, the bad, the ugly, and the beautiful. They show no one is too far. No one is too stuck to reach out today for God’s mercy to rescue them.
My session where I chat with Jennifer Kochert, co-founder of Flourish, about delighting in The Word is on Day 3.
