“How Deep Are Our Roots?”

“We’re either well-grounded – I’m talking about deeply rooted – or we’re hanging on to life’s day-to-day rollercoaster and hoping we don’t lose grip.” – #ToddCPittman

Yep, I Said It!

…and so did Proverbs 12:3 Wickedness never brings stability, but the godly have deep roots.

“When everyday things get to me I have to check myself because that means the soil is getting thin, the water is drying up, and my roots need some spiritual nourishment! And when it comes to a guide of practical tips for everyday living, what better source to tap into than the Book of Proverbs and the pen of King Solomon. We have to be mindful that little things can rain down on us until we are so saturated that we don’t have enough strength to hold our ground. But, My God! – it is when we are spiritually grounded and when our lives are deeply rooted in God’s Word that keeps us standing strong. We need to ask ourselves: Are we deeply rooted in His Word to weather the storm or will the storm weaken us because we are only strapped to the outside surface of the natural? We’ve got to build the wisdom to weather the storm. Whether it is an accumulation of little things that keep coming at us and saturating our foundation or it’s those bigger things like bad news from Doc, the job loss, the infidelity . . . it doesn’t matter it’s all a storm! But how deep our roots are impacts how upset we act, how offended we are, and how discouraged we get. Look, the wind is gonna blow mess our way and we’ve got to strengthen our roots daily so that no matter how strong the winds are, at the end of the day we’ll still be standing. Let’s keep our roots of faith deep in the Lord, ask Him to continue to work on us, and give thanks that it is through God’s might that WE WILL weather the storm!” – #ToddCPittman
