I wrote this devo a few weeks ago for my writers group, but I’m thinking about it again today. Thought you might need a gentle reminder, too. ~ Michele
“For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you maybe filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” ~ Ephesians 3:14-19
I’m praying for you today, praying above all else that your roots aren’t tangled in …
- The last person who wounded you
- The last person who praised you
- The image you see in the mirror
- The people who fill your kitchen table
- The car in your driveway
- The clothes in your closet
- The zeros on your paycheck
- The zeros on your word count
- The last rejection you received
- The last publication you celebrated
- The lines on your resume
- The lines around your eyes
- The pull of the past
- The draw of the future
If they are, allow yourself to be untangled and then re-rooted in the eternal, unchanging love of God.
What are you rooted to today?
Thanks for the reminder Michele. It’s so easy to get sidetracked.
Oh, I so love this! All too often, I find myself planted right in the middle of many of the things you listed. Thanks for the reminder this morning!
i’ve got some detangling to do.
Me, too, Alece. Me, too. I’m quite tangled, but working on freedom.
Thanks, Chrystie. I need the reminder about every hour of the day. I’m so fickle at times!
