I always thought of myself as a root.
These are things I like, people I love, places I feel comfortable. And I had heard it so many times. “Who likes change?” So I planted myself in a zone of complacency.
Eventually I grew unsettled. Bored. Too comfortable.
Our God never changes. That is soul comfort. But really that is the only comfort we should allow.
Because us, us he thrusts into a world that rotates and never remains still, where seasons change and tempers fly and hugs don’t last forever. A temporary world. One that is never my home.
So I must change too. Because it is then that I grow.
And I get it now, I am a flower that sways and fades and glows and bends.
And my unchanging God, his Word of life, they are my roots.
The way I change, my response and acceptance of that change is a testament to my strong, unfailing root.
