Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness. – Colossians 2:7 (NLT)
Being thankful right now is probably the last thing on your mind. It feels like there’s so many things going on that can make us feel unthankful.
However, even in the middle of trouble, we can remind ourselves of our roots. Our roots are in Jesus. And if we’ve built our lives on him, then we have something to be thankful for.
Even if things seem hard right now, you can be thankful that you know Jesus. You have salvation in Him. Forgiveness is found in Him. No matter what you’re going through, you have a savior who is there by your side.
That is something to be thankful for. So even when you feel alone. Even when you feel mistreated, know that you’ve got roots in Jesus.
Jesus is there for you, leading you, keeping you. He’s guiding you through whatever you’re facing. No matter what, you can be thankful for your roots in Jesus!
