"Sink your roots in him and build on him. Be strengthened by the faith that you were taught, and overflow with thanksgiving." - Colossians 2:7

     In your life have you ever felt as though you're being tossed back and forth like a tree in violent storm? I know I have. There have been points in my life where I've felt that I was going to break, but instead I managed to survive the storm that was, at first, tearing me into pieces. How did I do this you ask? You see, when all the burdens and heartaches of life came raging against me, I simply put my roots in a different soil. - I put my trust in God. Even the largest of trees can be broken by a small windstorm because their roots aren't in strong soil. Every time a storm has come I have always watched in amazement as trees would bend and the tops of them would almost touch the ground. How would those trees not get ripped up and be carried away by these powerful winds? - Because the trees put their roots in solid ground. If we put our faith and trust in God, we will be able to withstand any storm that the devil throws at us. We may bend and get tossed around, but we will never be uprooted - because our roots will be in solid ground. Stop growing in the unstable ground of this world and start growing in the solid ground of God's Kingdom! A soil that will not only keep you protected from the harmful storms in life, but a soil that will make you grow and prosper into things you could have never imagined.

  3. Hi Jeremy
    Very encouraging passage ~ I am doing a blog entry today on trees which I love ~ the passage that inspires me this morning is '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. Jeremiah 17:7
