Five Minute Friday} "Roots"

 The roots in my flower pot are planted deep within the soil.
But those very roots are also rotted.
No flower can bloom within them.
The old must die; and the new must come.
It is time to make a change in my pot of un-blooming flowers
and begin anew.
These roots are like the roots we were all born with-
we were born with imperfection,
sometimes the old must die-
before the new can bloom again
but it's okay-
 because we are like the brand new flowers you buy in the garden,
because of our roots in our Heavenly Father
we are able to be re-rooted
and re-planted many times.
It is here 
rooted in Christ alone
where we watch His beauty in us blossom!

  1. How true. We need to be uprooted and replanted again and again into healthy soil to truly grow and produce fruit for the Master.
