I am so thankful for my precious, Godly parents who instilled this in each and every one of their children & the importance of being Rooted in Christ. Regardless of any difference we had through the years, we will stand alone when we meet our maker & can only answer for our own actions. I cannot imagine trying to give God an excuse for being ugly, disobedient, etc. Dear Lord, please help me to not miss an opportunity to share this.
"Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD... He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit." Jeremiah 17:7-8
