Trekking the New River Trail



Roots, roots, and more roots!

Tree roots fascinate me.  Some roots are thick, some are thin, and some are around each other.  These tree roots are along the New River Trail, on the high side!  Many of them look as if they had been in a landslide, but are still hanging on for dear life.  How is that possible?  Well, as far as I can figure their roots must go pretty deep into the earth, as well as running straight for the source of life…water.  The deeper the roots, the stronger the tree.

We have a common bond with roots in our own walk with God.  The more we study, read, commit ourselves to living a godly life, repent, forgive,pray & obey, the deeper our roots are in Jesus Christ.   He is our source of Living Water and we too run straight for a refreshing drink to revive our thirsty souls.  I need to drink more often and more abundantly.  My roots need refreshing more than I think!
