Deep roots

Illustration by Renée Nault

And underneath is a whole world that no eyes ever see. Deep in the heart is a whirlwind of life; roots that are bound, roots that are free. We look at a girl standing under a tree. That girl stands on cities, birds, a beast, a sea. What is it i wonder, that's underneath me?

"Underneath are the everlasting arms." - Deut 33.27

"But Mary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart." - Luke 2.19

"Good growth takes place upward and downward at the same time... O heavenly Sower, plough me first, and then cast the truth into me, and let me yield Thee a bounteous harvest." - Spurgeon
