The Root

“Then Christ will make His home in your hearts as you trust Him.  Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong.” — Ephesians 3:17, NLT

The root fixes itself into the soil,

imbibes the rich humus,

impressing itself further, 

deeper, establishing a home,

a tap line and other finer branches,

veins that sustain the stem,

leaves, flower — the bloom, 

the beautiful blossom, 

a complete expression 

of all growth.

So we, too, thrive when 

emerged in love, fed 

by the One who created all 

things, filled to overflowing

with living water as we flower

into the souls He created 

us to be.
