Exposed Roots

Exposed Tree Roots

Sometimes this world is a scary place and each days’ news could fill you with fear but that isn’t how God wants you to live. He’s promised you His best plans and blessings. He says He’ll strengthen you, and be IN you; therefore, you have nothing to fear. I was reminded of these truths not long ago when, after a hiatus of mowing our lawns, I was back at it once again. In our front are several trees along the border of our yard and our neighbors. Without a fence between our yards, I mow up to the trees. That’s when I immediately noticed the exposed roots of one of the trees and thought this tree’s life is unprotected through these exposed roots but it’s strong, flourishing, and continuing to grow. No sooner had I thought that when the Lord said “That’s how I am to you and all who abide and rest in Me…I strengthen you from the inside out so you can stand strong in the elements of the harsh things of this world. In me you are an overcomer. Never underestimate my love, grace, and power residing in you.” Wow.
