Blessing: May the Lord be Your Hope and Confidence so You May Bear Much Good Fruit

I pray this blessing over you today Lindsey. As you trust in the Lord, may he be your hope and your confidence. May you be like a good tree planted along a river, with solid roots so that you may withstand both heat and drought maintaining your youth and bearing much good fruit.

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for this world and everything in it. Thank you for the many many little things that often go by unnoticed. Thank you for coffee, and not just one kind of coffee but dozens and dozens of kinds. Thank you for cocoa and all the varieties of hot chocolate. Thank you for mornings sitting with you with a coffee or hot chocolate. And thank you for the scripture to base my blessing over your daughter this day:

Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit. (Jeremiah 17:7-8)

Lord, here I am. It’s me! I am here before your throne to pray for your daughter you love. I am here to bless her again this day. Lindsey, may you be blessed for trusting in the Lord. May he be your hope and confidence. May you be like a tree planted along side a stream with deep roots fed by its water. May you never be bothered by heat nor by drought. May your leaves always stay green and may you never stop producing good fruit. And we will give glory to the Lord. All the glory is his. I bless you today in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

NLT:
But blessed are those who trust in the Lord
    and have made the Lord their hope and confidence.
They are like trees planted along a riverbank,
    with roots that reach deep into the water.
Such trees are not bothered by the heat
    or worried by long months of drought.
Their leaves stay green,
    and they never stop producing fruit.

NET:
 My blessing is on those people who trust in me,
who put their confidence in me.
They will be like a tree planted near a stream
whose roots spread out toward the water.
It has nothing to fear when the heat comes.
Its leaves are always green.
It has no need to be concerned in a year of drought.
It does not stop bearing fruit.

KJV translation note

The King James Version is a beautiful translation of the original Hebrew and Greek, however I sometimes find Old English hard to understand fully. 1 or 2 other translations can help clarify what it is saying so I can understand it. More Info CLICK: References
