The onions had the appearance of a healthy plant… but were completely root bound.
So many tangles in our lives have been revealed to us. Some need to be confronted. Others need time to heal and space to grow. Some need to be discarded. The process of uprooting unblocks God’s Light and plan for our lives. Old soil has to be shaken off and unhealthy roots have to be removed. Its hard and painful. We face uncertainty and more than our share of fearful moments and yes there are still some uncertain days ahead.
Our spiritual landscape is being thinned out —less focus on doing and more focus on simply following Jesus and planting Kingdom seeds. The dead roots have to go. The tangled knots should give way to peace and freedom to see a new spiritual territory. What that spiritual territory will look like brings hope and excitement.
Are you going through an unsettling time in life? Does it feel like the very things you are clinging to are slipping from your reach? Does it feel like you can’t take much more? It may be that God is doing a replanting in you.
God desires for you to flourish —to be all that He created you to be. He is a loving Father and unwilling to stand by and see you wither from lack of growth. He knows the plans He has for you, and is willing to do what it takes to free you to walk in that plan, even if it means momentary discomfort.
So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. Colossians 2:6
