It isn’t always easy to be fruitful. From day-to-day pressures, and responsibilities, to things that stop us in our tracks, we need to grow resilience for every season of life – we need deep roots. When we’re going through tough times, it’s vital to recognise how we feel. The Bible encourages us to acknowledge these moments so that we thrive on the journey.
So, as women of faith, we are called to more than simply making it through each day exhausted, overwhelmed and in need of a little lie down! God’s heart is for us to be planted in Him and to flourish.
Deep Rooted is a chance to step back from the busyness and step into the strength God has already planted within you. Come and worship, reflect and hear inspiring stories from down-to-earth women. They will help you build faith-filled resilience and grow long-lasting, life-giving roots, so you can stand firm and be fruitful no matter what life throws at you.
