Once again it it's 'Five Minute Friday' where as, our hostess, and inspiration, The Gypsy Mama, puts it, we write "For only five short, bold, beautiful minutes. Unscripted and unedited. We just write without worrying if it’s just right or not."
Want to join us? Then be sure and visit The Gypsy Mama today!
Now...for today's assignment...
My thoughts automatically go to what I've shared with so many Christian women over the years who have complained about where life has taken them...for example...through way of barrenness, the loss of a loved one, physical, financial, or spiritual lack...or where God has planted them in "this" particular season of life...the house that they live in, the city vs. country (or vice versa), or even the people they live with. I have reminded them that we are where we are today because, either, God has allowed it, or He has ordained it, so that He can work through us in that "certain situation", or that He can use us in that "certain place" for His glory and His purposes. I have encouraged them to bloom where they are planted by laying aside the flesh and getting into the Word of God (the Holy Bible)...seeking Him with their whole heart...purposefully growing in His righteousness, His wisdom, and His grace as they faithfully, and contentedly, wait upon Him and HIS timing ...not their own. When it's God's timing to do something different in that certain situation He'll make a way. He always does. And, today, I'd like to encourage you to do the same...
Grow in God's righteousness.
...and His grace as you
bloom where you are planted!
"But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ..."
(2 Peter 3:18)
