Welcome to the November edition of the Rooted and Overflowing newsletter. In case we haven't met yet, my name is Letitia and I am thrilled to have you join me as I seek to live a life firmly rooted in Christ and with overflowing gratitude.
We have entered November and it is as eventful as the times have been since the pandemic arrived in the United States in March. Hurricanes, social and racial unrest are now joined by a presidential election where the winner was declared as I wrote this month's message, four days after voting ended.
November brings with it a time of reflection and thanksgiving. And even in the midst of turmoil and unrest, there are still so many things we can be thankful for. Take a moment right now and think about what is going well. Think about the things that may not be going as you'd like, but they are not off the rails. When we really get down to it, we cannot deny that God is keeping us together. When we want to fall apart, He holds us tightly.
This month's scripture from Colossians 4:2 encourages us to devote ourselves to prayer with a clear mind and thankful heart. Now, more than ever, prayer is essential. It has to become a part of our daily routine if it isn't already. Not because I am a crochety church lady, but because each day we go without praying is a day we let God know we don't need Him and don't value His involvement in our lives. In short, we are saying "I got it."
So as holiday tasks begin to creep into our schedules, let us remember to make time to pray and let God know we are thankful for His many blessings and for continuing to keep us through these uncertain times.
