Bloom Where You’Re Planted: Choosing to Embrace God’S Will for Your Life
Bloom Where Youre Plantedon paper, it may be a simple concept, but in reality, it is one of the most challenging tasks a Christian will ever face, especially during hard times. I discovered this firsthand after being diagnosed with epilepsy as a teenager. I was swept off my mountain and found myself smack-dab in the middle of the valley of shadow and doubt. The truth is, this unexpected change of scenery was exactly what I needed if I was ever going to stop focusing on the plans I created and start focusing on Gods plan instead. The journey through the valley is never easy, but embracing the will God has intended for your life is a good start. I may not be through my valley just yet, but as Ive learned over the span of eight years while dealing with epilepsy, Gods plan is perfect and dependable. Blooming where youre planted is more than simply embracing your current circumstances; it is choosing to root yourself in Christ. Only then can you grow to fulfill the purpose created for you by Almighty God.
