Rooted in the Heart of God

Rooted in the Heart of God

By Sister Ruth Ksycki, OSB

Blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose hope is the Lord. S/he is like a tree planted beside the waters that stretches out its roots to the stream: it fears not the heat when it comes; its leaves stay green; In the year of drought it shows no distress, but still bears fruit. Jeremiah 17: 7-8

As the days are cold and cloudy and never-ending, I am reminded that I must remain rooted in the heart of God.

I need to keep stretching my roots to the life-giving water – the love of God.

Like a seed at this time of year, I lie down in the dark earth letting God’s love seep into my soul.

When spring comes I will be able to shoot forth green sprouts and bring forth fruit that will sustain me and others in time of distress and drought.

So I befriend the darkness to become more rooted in God. Awaiting the freshness of spring.
