Roots ~ May they grow Deep


Lynn is hosting Thankful Thursday this week and she asks how wisdom changed your life.

Happy Birthday Lynn!!!  

As a child we were afraid to run toward the ocean alone. We felt a sense of panic in solitude and reach for a parents hand. As we aged we turned toward friends for that reassurance. We are often let down by them, because we place the bar to high for them. As we grow also in Christ we hold each persons hand a little more loosely and not see him or her as our main source of security.  God tells us not to trust people, not because He is unkind, but because He cares so deeply for us. He exhorts us to put out roots down deeply into Him, and Him alone.  This was taken from my bible study I am doing.

Lord, I am so thankful for the tugging that you do on my heart. Please continue to help me to grow closer to you. May I be still, that I might hear you call me by name. Guide and direct my path and help my roots to grow deep into You, and You alone. 

~ Resting in Your arms, Trina
