Deep Roots

Updated: Jan 15

"Blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along the riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they go right on producing delicious fruit."

Jeremiah 17: 7-8


Times have changed once again. We meet masked strangers wherever we may go. Only so many people allowed in one area and standing in line has a new meaning these days.


The news journalists talk about the dreaded virus and how we Americans are handling it...or not handling it. Social distancing is a new phrase that is becoming more common with each passing day.


We question if schools will open on time as our children grow further and further behind, some unable to get the learning they need in their home. People with jobs are either working from home or risking their health by going into work each day.


Swarms of citizens are being tested either from having symptoms or being exposed to someone that received a positive result. Those who have been told they have it are being treated like they have the plague and subjected to quarantine to their home for fourteen days.


What has this life come to? I sit and wonder sometimes, is this our new normal? Can we ever go back to the way we use to be five months ago? I don't want to panick or get caught up in all the negative reports that are thrown at us each day, from sickness to death to financial ruin, all of which have this world gripped by fear.


So...I will turn to Jesus. Over and over I want to trust in my Creator. No matter what, I want to get lost in God's Word and seek my Lord and Savior more and more. I realize the more I learn about Him will only make me want to know more, dig deeper, journey farther. I want to get lost in His promises and dwell in His love that He lavishes on me. You want to come along with me? Come on...what have you got to lose?


In the morning when I rise

In the morning when I rise

In the morning when I rise

Give me Jesus

(chorus)

Give me Jesus

Give me Jesus

You can have all this world

Just give me Jesus

-Jeremy Camp


I love you & He loves you more!


Lord, I want to get so lost in You that this world's concerns take a backseat. I know Who is in control and nothing goes unnoticed by You.

Father, You are my hope and confidence may I be a tree that grows by the riverbank where my roots will grow deep. The cares of this world is not for me to worry about so may I stay focused on glorifying Your name. In Jesus' name. Amen.
