Don't abandon your roots in God just to be lifted higher by gravity's pull. So often we disconnect from Him in our thoughts, beliefs, and actions to gain more money, better positions, social status, and material things. Sometimes just to be free to roam as we please. But God always reminds us that though you may be lifted higher by the world, you have not GROWN to that height and are just awaiting a shift in gravity for the fall. When God grows you to higher levels, there is no falling because your roots are still planted firmly in Him. Almost as a father putting his son on his shoulders compared to someone who just jumps, but must come back down because he is not secured by anything beneath him. You need only to know that when things try to shake and break you that you are secured in His word. Stay connected, stand firm, He is the plug!
"Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness." Col 2.6 (NLT)
I am a 34 year old wife and mother of three children. I love all things creative and writing thought provoking posts. I began documenting #MyEarlyMorningThoughts about a year ago and have since received many requests to begin blogging and to continue posting about everyday growth, maturity, and christian concepts.
