"Then Christ will make His home in your hearts as you trust in Him. 
Your roots will grow down into God's love
and keep you strong" (Ephesians 3:17).

Father, my heart is yielded to you.  I trust you and am welcoming you in my life.  I pray that the deeper my faith becomes, the more at home Christ will be within me.  Strengthen me, Lord, as I come to know the depths of your endless love.  In Jesus' name, Amen.

    lovely! visiting from Winsome Wed.

  2. Hi Lisa! Thanks for dropping by today! I'm so glad you were encouraged!

  3. "They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit." (Jeremiah 17:8, NLT)

    Yes, rooted in the Lord, we will stand strong through the storms of life.


  4. I love that verse from Jeremiah! I want to be so close to God that I am continually soaking up everything He has for me!
