Today it's very windy and there was actually a severe weather warning mentioning gale force winds!
We have a tree that is rather wobbly at the best of times and it looked like it would fall down at any moment. The unfortunate fact is that if it did it would completely smash our washing line which lives below it! We have been piling up heavy firewood etc behind it to try to encourage it to stay in the ground where it belongs.
As Christians, we have an anchor that keeps us steady through even the stormiest weather. We don't have to rely on bits of firewood to try to help us stay upright but we can be sure that our roots are grounded firm and deep in Christ.
"...being confident of this, is that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus." -Philippians 1:6 NIV
