know the who …

Our roots must go deep before our souls can soar.

A tree grows higher when the roots of the tree go deeper.   In our lives we have to have solid roots beneath us before we can achieve the results we desire most in our lives.   We have to know “who” we are before we can become all that we were meant to be.   We have to know what our strengths and gifts are and believe in them before our tree can touch the skies without toppling over.

Without strong and deep roots it is easy for us to traverse life gaining more and more success only to find one morning that there is nothing supporting all that effort.  The roots of our tree are shallow and in a moment our life is toppling downward.

We can learn a lot from trees:  they’re always grounded but never stop reaching heavenward.  ~Everett Mámor
