Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.
Eph 6:10 NIV

Burrowing deep into eternal foundations,
Secured, supported, sustained.
Stretching onwards and outwards,
Reaching up to lofty skies,
The mighty oak stands,
Nourished with light, goodness and love,
Protected from all harm.
Displaying it’s strength and beauty,
For all the world to see.

Almighty, sustaining God, You are our God and we praise You. We thank You for your goodness and provision in our daily lives.  As we reflect, we draw on the nourishment of your love, your strength and protection in all we do today….

Almighty, sustaining God, may we sink our roots deeply into Jesus; may we be grounded in his words and teaching; may we open our arms more fully to receive his gracious love.

May we stand firm in his strength, in days of sunshine and storms; and may we offer a strong and secure shelter that others may be attracted to your love in Jesus. Amen
