It has put out new growth and is beginning to thrive once again!!
Does this remind you of anyone you know? Or maybe it's YOU? Dear Friend...do NOT give up! Do not give up on your loved one. Do not give up on yourself! God does not give up on us! Maybe you or your loved one needs pruning and God may be in the process of that. Or maybe they just need you to keep believing in them and keep praying for them. The fertilize of prayer is one of the most powerful tools we can yield as a believer. Keep praying for this loved one. Keep encouraging them and loving them, even if you only see a hint of "green" showing. God, the Master Gardener, is able to resurrect the most unlikely and bring them back to a fruitful, productive life again. If this life is yours, do not despair. God has promised to give back the years the locusts have eaten if we will put turn to Him, repent, and follow Him. It is never too late.
