The Tree of Life

The meaning behind the Spirit, Soul, and Body Health logo…

The bird represents your spirit, the part of you that will live forever. The heart represents your soul (mind, will, and emotions), which will also live forever. The tree represents your physical body, the part of you that will not live forever.

In 2014, I read Jeremiah 17:7,8 and immediately claimed that verse as my prayer for my children. It states, “But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him. He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”

I pray my children will forever trust God and be rooted in Him, the living water that always nourishes and satisfies. I know as they drink the living water of God’s truth, they will thrive and bear the fruit of the Holy Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

In 2016, I meditated on Isaiah 61:1-11 as I completed Beth Moore’s Breaking Free Bible study. One of the many truths that stood out to me is the end of verse 3, “They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor.” God plants us in fertile ground and causes us to grow into strong trees of righteousness so we can display God’s greatness.

The Tree of Life logo symbolizes my prayer for all my readers: As you trust in God, may He bless your spirit, soul, and body. May you grow strong, and may your life show others how wonderful God is.
