Where you came from is not who you are
Blood is thicker than water until it leaves a scar
Roots? Who really needs them anyway?
When there is a Savior to hold you along the way
Like a mighty oak, tall and strong
He takes away the past and all the wrongs
When you turn to Him, He is your Day one
And A brand New Life has begun
No longer do you need roots to hold you in
For He grounds you from within
Oh Mighty Oak please have Your way
Hold each one of us up…come what may
I sure do love getting a prompt to write. And this picture is pretty cool. Does make you wonder if it’s real…
How many of us can say they really didn’t plant any substantial roots until the day God saved us? I know I can. My family tree has many things I’d rather not dig up from the past as so many people love to do that sort of thing. I find my husband looking on ancestry.com often wanting to see pics of the past. To see how so and so looked years ago. For me, I’d rather just not.
I feel like that tree growing out of the mighty tree. The blunt, cut off end at the bottom is where my life truly began at the age of 35. All the years before that I was tossed back and forth in the storms of sin and regret.
Now He holds me up. His roots are my roots. Do you feel the same? I titled the poem A New Life which is also the title of my blog…. because it truly is a new life and I won’t go back!
