Roots…

IMG_9676When I look at a tree… I see so much…

And though I’m fascinated by so many parts… Well the roots have always intrigued me in a special way…

Roots are the building blocks of the tree…  A tree grows down before it grows up…

Growing up, I learned how important my spiritual root system is…

I believe generational goodness and badness lie in the foundation of our “roots“…

Meaning… The way our parents, grandparents and ancestors lived have a real, impact on the current status of our life, spirit, soul and body…

And, I believe, in order to cultivate life in a positive, flourishing way… In a way that includes life’s goodness and blessings… We should ask God to reveal the negative, bad things rooted in us from previous generations…

To reveal the darkness that constantly causes us to stay down…  The deep seeded spiritual thoughts and feelings that cause spiritual, mental and physical destruction and death…

And then ask Him to forgive our past generations for all of the destruction and death they’ve sown into our foundation…

Truly ask Him to uproot what might be spiritually killing us…

So that then, we can begin to live freer lives… And so we can stop feeding the negative things that might cause us to complain, become angry and depressed, hold onto bitterness and anger… The pride, jealousy and hatefulness that hold us back from reaching our full potential…

Because… With the past… With the negative… We can’t truly flourish… Our life-enhancing blessings cannot thrive… And we cannot honestly become all that God has created us to be…

But… I believe… I believe we are all capable of forgiveness… Of allowing God to forgive the past… So that we may move forward and cultivate a life of spiritual wholeness…
