Deep Rooted


To reduce the chances of storm-related tree damage, planting the most resilient species isn’t the only option available. Assessing the health of individual trees is equally important. I read this from How Stuff Works-Home and Garden. Why? You may ask, because of recent storms.


I was driving around my town after the storm, and I witnessed very old trees that were large and beautiful.  These trees had been in place for a very long time, and were no longer up for they had fallen over in the storm. It made me evaluate my own personal walk.  I have always asked God to help my roots grow deeper, for my love and commitment to Him to be greater.


This last week I had been reading the story of Job and all the challenges he faced. In Job 4:3-4 scripture says, 3Think how you have instructed many, how you have strengthened feeble hands.4Your words have supported those who stumbled; you have strengthened faltering knees.  When you look at the word Faltering Knees- it means bowing.  We all know that the knees support us.  If they buckle we can fall and have a weakness. Job was reminded to think about how he encouraged others, to strengthen himself.  We all have choices that we have to make daily- to strengthen ourselves by our prayer time and reading God word. As you look at the story of Job. Many questions arose to God, yet at the end Job kept his focus on God.  Many times God will remind us to keep our focus on Him, to remember lessons learned in our walk. God always shows His sustaining power.  Job 27:11 “I will teach you about the power of God:


When the storm ends, the wicked vanish, but the righteous person is forever firm. Proverbs 10:25   My Sister don’t lose heart, God loves you and so do I. I pray that God will keep you, even if I may not know you!!!
