This tree is beautiful, despite all its scars and struggles to make a place for itself. But not many would notice this tree or its radiance unless you searched it out, and stopped for a while to look upon it.
Through all the struggles, God reveals His beautiful story, but unless you take the time to search out the beauty in prayer and through the scriptures, searching like a child for the next truth to be revealed, like a tree reaching for the dwindling sunlight, then you will continue to fight against or not even embrace the freedom that comes with accepting salvation and being born again as a child of God.
2 Corinthians 7:10
Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret.
