Hey guys!

This is My Bonsai Tree.
www.facebook.com/castingcrowns…

Any kind of tree can be turned into a bonsai tree. Pinetree's, oak trees, maple trees. Anything. Want to know how?

First you pick a small pot. You have to convince the tree their pot is as deep as it's root system is ever going to get it. And soon the tree will begin to believe it.

Then you begin saying "no" to the tree. Every time it tries to grow you prune it. Every time it tries to stretch you stop it. You keep saying "no" to the tree until it is convinced that the pot is as big as it's world will ever be and this is as big as they will ever get. Soon the tree begins to believe it.

This is exactly what your enemy wants to do to you. He will use storms and hardships in your life to convince you that you can never be more than your last mistake and never be any deeper or stronger than you are right now.
But it's a lie. What is true about you is what God says about you. 2 Corinthians 12 says that God's strength is made perfect in our weakness.
Psalm 139 says that he created us in the womb and that we are all here with a purpose.

You are not a defeated little bonsai tree. You are a tree planted by streams of water that you will yield fruit in its season. Psalm 1

Stop listening to the wrong voices.
