Roots

I like taking pictures of trees especially big oaks they are so strong, tall and deeply rooted. A true showing of how I need to be in my walk with the Lord.
Colossians 2:7 “Let us be rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.”
Wishing all a blessed day!
