Deep Roots

Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. 
Colossians 2:7

We can all agree that our world is changing. On social media I have seen people express feelings of fear, worry, anger, and so on, but there is one thing that has struck a cord with me observing all this. 

What my heart aches for is the feeling of hopelessness in so many of our neighbors across our country. Do you see it? Do you see that so many people have placed their hope in human beings? Hope seems lost because their candidate lost or they weren't happy with the choices to begin with.

Here's the thing, humans will always fail us, but Jesus never will. Our times and leaders are ever changing. Jesus remains the same yesterday, today, and forever. (Hebrews 13:8) Jesus promises us hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11) Our neighbors are in desperate need of this hope. Now is our time to share the unwavering love of Jesus and the hope He brings in every season and circumstance. 

Don’t put your confidence in powerful people;
    there is no help for you there.
When they breathe their last, they return to the earth,
    and all their plans die with them.
But joyful are those who have the God of Israel[a] as their helper,
    whose hope is in the Lord their God.
He made heaven and earth,
    the sea, and everything in them.
    He keeps every promise forever.
Psalm 146: 3-6

Where are your roots being planted? Let them be planted in Jesus. Your roots dug deep in Him will weather any season.  

With love,
