Deeper Roots

136585801169263658_jFAOn2jC_cDuring difficult times in our lives, when we are tossed about by the winds of adversity, our hearts flooded by torrents of pain, or parched from the heat of intense trials…during those times, in our desperation, we have need of a strength that is beyond our own.  We need a calm, a peace, that passes our own understanding.  We seek out One who is wiser, greater, stronger than we…because what we need during those times can only be found by looking into the heart of our Creator.

Jeremiah 17:7-8: “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.”

Draw near to the LORD, seek Him in your heart and through His Word.  Become rooted and grounded in His love.  And you will flourish, though everything around you may be raging like a storm or withering as though from drought.  You will be established in Christ…and in HIM, you will find the strength to stand strong!

God’s Strength & Peace to You Today,

Angela
