Celebrate Strength Deeply Rooted


I’m stronger because I had to be, smart because of my mistakes, happier because of the sadness I’ve known, and now wiser because I’ve learned.

Blessed is the man that trusted in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.
~ Jeremiah 17:7-8 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Welcome Lexa and co-hosts, L.G. Keltner @Writing Off The Edge and Tonja Drecker @Kidbits Blog, to another week to celebrate the small things.

Hope all is well and you’re keeping the faith. (wink)  Praise The Lord, I was able to post on time.  Wahoo.

This week, I celebrate strength deeply rooted. I love the Oak Tree Poem and today’s scripture.  Both helped me crawl through back-to-back seasons while praying round the clock.

The little things we share, build up, soften the rough edges, give a different perspective, show kindness, a virtual {{hug}} ______________________(fill in the blank), contribute to strength deeply rooted.

There are times, inspiration and encouragement comes when needed most.

It’s through the rough times, those fiery furnace moments, to learn and understand strength deeply rooted.

It’s putting on the full armour of God, praying the Word, having faith and trust in the Lord, to endure the mighty wind that blows.    Thank you, Lord, your loving faithfulness comforts and sustains.  

Like unexpected challenges, in life, it’s a process to develop strength deeply rooted.  It’s experience to sustain the mighty wind that blows.  

Abundant blessings, my friends, because the just does everything by faith. Enjoy your day and your weekend.

Praise The Lord.

As always, I welcome your thoughts. (smile)

  1. I’m glad you posted too. CTST wouldn’t be as warm and supportive if you didn’t. I loved all the quotes and the poem. I’d like to be a tree, but my limbs are hanging pretty weakly this week…

    1. Thanks for your kind words Lexa. I’m sorry your limbs are hanging weakly this week {{hugs}} praying your limbs are stronger soon. I understand, really I do, those times, I miss posting is because the circus environment I’m in drains. I have to shut down and rest sometimes because I run out of time. Abundant blessings, my friend, by faith, our next week will be better (smile) enjoy your weekend!!
