“Take root, my darling”, He whispers in the silence.
It’s all too simple to desire other-ness, that which is other than where we are or what we are doing.
Sometimes I feel stuck or that I’m not where I think I belong.
However, I believe that God plants us in places that He sees fit.
He knows the whole picture, we are just the creation. So, this morning, as I spent time with my creator, He urged:
“Take root, my darling.”
He uses the soil to grow us and the environment to allow us to bloom.
But we must be grounded, planted, and rooted in the place that He has us right now. We must know that He is trying to grow us in all the right ways, even if we can’t see it.
He speaks, “Walks in my ways and you will flourish.”
I thank you, Lord, that you are trust-worthy and a part from you I have nothing good.
I will choose to trust you and take root in the present soil.
I will praise you throughout the journey and during the growing seasons.
I will grow where you plant me; I do not know where else could be a better place.
Lord, help me to follow your path and not be distracted by the things that do not matter. I love you. Thank you for delighting in me.
