Bloomingly Grounded

Consider a flower seed. It sends a shoot down into the earth in order to be securely grounded. At the same time another a shoot grows upward to become a thing of beauty that will bring joy to the world. 
Without a strong root the beautiful plant that the world sees would  fade away. The higher the growth of the plant, the deeper the root must go to keep it grounded and strong. 

So are our lives in Christ. Without a deep, abiding, and grounded faith the work we do withers and fades. Our attempt at ministry dies on the vine because we have no deep root in Him. Just because a ministry appears gloriously beautiful does not mean it is lasting. Let your roots grow deep in Him, and your life will bloom with lasting beauty.
