You need roots to grow.

"Mere change is not growth. Growth is the synthesis of change and continuity, and where there is no continuity there is no growth."
Rooted. Without roots, a tree can never grow to its full height. Winds will tear it from the ground. It never has a chance to reach its full potential. The same is true for us. Without roots, without continuity, chaos and change will knock us down. We can never learn to flourish and bloom. But where we grow our roots is also important. If the ground beneath us isn't solid, our roots will be shallow and never really take hold. Only when we're rooted in Christ can we truly grow and flourish wherever we're planted.
"So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness." -Colossians 2:6-7
