Dear Readers, this website is primarily devoted to the subject of marriage. Yet, child of God vignettes are again springing up from my heart and clamoring to be written and published. Follow me off the path we were on and share the adventure, as I listen to the quiet voice of the Holy Spirit and obey His prompting. I appreciate you, my sojourners.
Beautiful ferns cover our woodland. Because they are the backdrop for my circle garden, I don’t want them invading the soil among my cultivated flowers. They have large, tenacious root balls. I can’t just pull them out. I need my gardening tools and elbow grease. I marvel over the weeding challenge they present.
Paul tells me how to grow stronger faith as a Christian. In Colossians 2:6, he says, “So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in Him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.” I believe the scriptures, the very words out of the mouth of our Lord, are the rich soil in which I grow tenacious roots. The growth above the ground is a beautiful, hardy faith.
Father God, may my roots in Christ Jesus be as strong and tenacious as those of the ferns in the woodland where I live.
