Outstretched and extended, my roots prod deeper and deeper into the rich soil of your goodness. They yearn for your splendor, provision and peace.
The grass withers and the flowers fall; so, it is my desire to stand firm like a mighty oak tree – planted secure in the House of the LORD.
The winds cannot move an age-old mighty oak. They might attempt to rattle the sturdy structure; however, it’s trunk alone is vast, and its root system stretches out for miles.
Just a small seed at my conception, may the shell of my exterior crack and my root system encompass vast quantities of distances – branching out far and wide.
Secure the stem of my soul to the water source of your mercy and grace. Unshaken, fixed and fortified – this is my fate when I tap into the aquifer of everlasting life.
Those who are planted in the house of the Lord,
Shall flourish in the courts of our God. – Psalm 92: 13
With the wellspring of life fueling my growth, energy and delight, I can flourish into a mature tree. Fully developed, I can stand firmly fixed with your power working through me. Braided down deep in the soil, my soul is interwoven with your everlasting truth.
They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor. – Isaiah 61:3
Brandish your glory through my sturdiness. Let it be evident for all to see.
In the storms of this life, it is my prayer that my root system is not shaken but only implants itself greater into the enriching soil of your harvest.
Make me into a mighty oak for the exhibition of your power, this is my prayer.
