Spring! It is a time of new beginnings, new life. A time to get your hands dirty and to end the day with sun in your hair and the smell of growing things. To enjoy the beauty of flowers after the bleakness of winter.
Every flower blooming where it is planted, unique, beautiful, in the exact place God meant for it to be.
Blooming where you are planted- it is so easy to get caught up in where you want to be in six months, a year, twelve that we forgot to bloom where we have been planted. We forget to do what we were meant to do. God has a purpose for our lives… we have been called and there is a job we need to fulfill. Our pastor used to tell us to get into “our spot”. “Don’t worry about what Aunt Sukie is doing over there in her spot but worry about what you are doing in your spot.” Before we can move on to greater things, greater blessings, sometimes we just need to bloom where we are planted. Don’t worry if your stem seems small, if the roses are in rare form to your left, if the lillies are displayed in all their glory around to your right. Do not envy them, but do what you are meant to do right where you are. Spread those petals and let your light so shine, and before you know it the seeds of faith and love will spring up all around you, and you will find yourself right where you are supposed to be. Right where He wants us to be.
