We’ve all seen those pictures of trees uprooted by storms. We’ve also seen pictures of trees that were able to stand up to the fury of even the most powerful hurricanes. The difference? It’s in the roots. The deeper the roots the stronger the tree. When it comes to our faith, God wants our roots to go deep so that no matter what comes our way we will stand strong. 

At some point, we’ve all found ourselves in the middle of a mess—relationally, professionally, or maybe even financially.

These messes may actually be our best opportunity to move toward God and God’s best opportunity to do something incredible through us.
