Bloom where you are planted…
–in the middle of wonderful circumstances
–in the middle of difficult circumstances
–in the middle of impossible circumstances
How? Lean on the expertise of God, the Master Gardener, to help you bloom.
God can supply everything we need, and He possesses a perspective we do not. His ways are higher than our ways and His thoughts than our thoughts. He knows and understands our environments and appointed the bounds of where we would live and when. He knows how to nourish us in such a time as this, in such an environment as this. He possesses all wisdom and all knowledge.
He can bring water to a dry situation, remove thorns, pour in His light, revive us with the breath of His Spirit, encourage us when we are downtrodden, and bring beauty from our lives. He is able to cultivate any circumstance and bring forth a fruitful harvest.
He daily loads us with benefits and sets His eyes upon us for our good. Will we set our eyes upon Him so we can grow, and not just grow but bloom?
When we draw near to Him, He will draw near to us. And He will help us bloom where we are planted.
