On My Heart: Growing Our Roots in Him


What is
needed to grow roots?

Does it take a lot
of work and effort
on the part of the plant?

Do we view plants
in great turmoil and strain
as their roots push down
through the soil?
Does spring bring stress
and pain as we watch
our gardens grow?

But the opposite is true,
for peace is what we see.

And it is the same
for us -
what is needed is
just keeping the soil 
of our hearts healthy,
ready to soak in
His life-giving words -
being still, resting,
looking up to the Son -
letting Him do
His work
in our hearts.

It can be springtime
in our hearts
all year round -
as we grow our roots
into Him.
