Good Roots

Good Roots

Ever watch a plant grow real strong -
Push up through clods of dirt?
There it is as though nothing’s wrong -
Sun beams down and winds flirt.

Without  water it will just wilt,
Then dry up from the root.
Water and feed and it’s rebuilt.
Then it grows and bears fruit.

But first there has to be a seed.
That’s God’s plan for all life.
That’s how life on this earth is keyed.
Tries to bypass are rife.

You want to be a healthy plant?
Content to be a weed?
Change by yourself,  you really can’t.
Something comes to impede.

You’ll have  to stop all that trying,
Come to God and repent.
When to your old self you’re dying,
New life in Him cement! 

Growth comes when you feed on God’s Word.
It’s not rocket science.
As you read, His voice will be heard.
There’s new life compliance.

Now start reading the book of John,
The Bible’s instruction.
There will be battles to be won
After that induction.

You can find Matthew, Mark, Luke and John on your computer. Keep reading.
