I'M A ROOT, NOT A FLOWER!


I SHOWED THIS A YEAR OR SO AGO,
AND AM SHOWING NOW, AGAIN.
IT IS TRULY ONE OF MY GOD-JOBS.
SOMETIMES I'VE WANTED TO BE ONE OF THE 
LEAVES, FLOWERS, OR A SPECIAL BRANCH.
INSTEAD, THE LORD HAS USED ME TO GO OUT
AND ABOUT AND WATCH AND STEP AND DO
WHATEVER IS NEEDED AND NECESSARY.

WITH MY PRESENT-DAY AGE THING AND
MY STRUGGLES WITH AND FOR
DEMENTIA AND VARIOUS BODY ISSUES,
ALL I CAN DO MOST OFTEN IS
WORSHIP, PRAISE, AND PRAY
FOR HIM...
MOMENT-BY-MOMENT,
DAY-BY-DAY.

AND THIS IS MY MAIN SPIRITUAL BIBLE VERSE
THAT HE LAID ON ME YEARS AND YEARS AGO.
BUT HE'S ALL THAT COUNTS, FOREVER.
THAT'S MY FOCUS!!

You can sense the power in that quote. How strong and sturdy are those trees, but wow He's able to destroy them.

Great powerful analogy.

I like that analogy of your life. Although roots can't be seen, that's where the true strength and stability comes from. We should all strive to be stronger roots.

I love how God gave you this life verse and has taught you how to embrace it in your own life. Being a root shows strength and courage. Blessed to be your neighbor at Lisha's tonight. Blessings!

How wonderful it is, that when our bodies and minds are aging or are racked with sickness, the Lord still brings refreshing through Praise, Worship and Prayer. Nothing, no nothing, can separate us from the Love of God and the Holy Spirit ministering to us.

Your post reminds us how important it is to memorize scripture, to hold onto a verse, because those are the verses that will carry us when trials and aging come our way.

Thank you for sharing!

May our roots go deep into that solid rock and those we sow good seed, may they also take root.
