As our roots grow down into Jesus, as we nestle into the soil of his marvelous love, we lean back on him and look upwards at the sky. Imagine what we see. We see a trunk extending upwards… the richness of the knots that are now so beautifully ingrained into the bark… and from that trunk a myriad of branches shooting out in all directions, each with a maze of twigs sprouting out, each with a blanket of countless leaves fluttering in the breeze, each with it’s own fibrous network drawing up nourishment from the rooted soil. With that view, it’s hard to not be amazed. Life. Extending outwards from the soil of his love… vibrant, diverse, detailed, glorious life.
