Strong Roots

"Other seed fell on rocky ground where it had little soil. It sprang up at once because the soil was not deep. And when the sun rose, it was scorched and it withered for lack of roots." Mk 4: 5-6

There is rocky ground in all our lives, and while we have to acknowledge it and accept it, we should not obsess about it. Rather, we need to find a way not to let our dark days dissuade us from living with joy and hope. Our parents, our friends, our church or our country may disappoint us, but God cannot abandon us, and faith demands that we ask God to be the ground of our lives. Only then can we be sure that no matter how rocky life is or might become, God's love will sustain us.

Letting God find the good ground in our lives where we can establish strong roots, and asking for the grace to let go of our failures is an important step on our spiritual journey. If we worry too much about the rocky ground, we will miss the good God is already doing within and through us.

Today, be grateful for the God has done in you. Let go of failure.

How has God surprised you on your pilgrim journey?
