2a. Rooted and Grounded

Are you rooted and grounded?

If your heart is like a garden, 

what is planted there?

God's Word says, if we understand 

how much God loves us, 

it will root His spirit in us so deeply 

that we won't 

be blown over by the storms of life.

God's love is HUGE!!

1.  God's is like a circle, a circle big and round

So when you see a circle, remember God is love.

2.  God's love is like a mountain, a mountain high strong

So when you see a mountain, remember God love.

3.  God's love is like an ocean, an ocean deep and wide.

So when you see an ocean, remember God is love.


Since God loves us so much 

we love Him back

I John 4:19

We love him, because he first loved us.

Matthew 22:37-38

Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God 

with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

Wait, did you say there are storms 

that can blow us over?

Are there really storms in life?


Going through this last year 

with the pandemic is like a storm.  

Hard things in life are like a storm.

God wants us to be so rooted and grounded 

that we keep our eyes and hearts focused on HIM!!

Remember Peter who walked on water? 

When he took his eyes of Jesus, 

he started to sink.  

But, Jesus was right there to pull him back up.

How do we do keep our eyes on Jesus?

One way is to search His Word, the Scriptures.

What does He say?

John 3:16 says:

Can you say John 3:16 by heart?



Try it now! 

Maybe you can make it into a song or a rap to remember it better!


Another way to be rooted and grounded  is to look and listen.

God may be trying to show you His love 

and even talk to you.  

But, He doesn't usually shout 

or even talk out loud.  

Seeing and hearing Him is like a treasure hunt!

Has God ever talked to you? 

Maybe you had a dream or 

He showed you how much He loved you. 

Maybe He answered a special prayer.

Those experiences are very important!  

Write them down or ask a parent to help you write them.


Here's a fun activity

Ask your parents to do this skit  with you.

Another way to be rooted

 is to 


Did you know that prayer is just talking to God?

But, it's not just asking Him for things you want.

It's not like making a list for Santa Claus.
