Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. (Colossians 3:23 NLT)
Today I want to encourage you, my friends, to allow God to use you right where you are. You were born with unique gifts and abilities, and there is no one who can do what you were put on this earth to do.
In this world that we live in, we can become so easily dissatisfied with where we are. I know I do. I have to fight to keep my perspective, to look up and away from what others have, what others are doing and what I wish God had gifted me with.
Bloom where you are planted.
Are you a mama working diligently inside your home, raising littles for Christ? You matter to God. What you do every day does not go unnoticed. You are blessed and have such a unique opportunity to shape the lives of your children and set the spiritual tone of your home.
Are you someone who works outside the home either for necessity or pleasure? Be a light! Maybe you don’t see your job as a blessing. Perhaps it’s stressful. Or maybe you love what you do. God has called you into the marketplace for this season to be a light. So shine forth His light and share His love with those around you.
Are you a student still trying to figure out your purpose in life? Embrace this exciting season in your life. Allow God to lead you. Follow your heart and your dreams and stand and watch what God will do in and through you.
God has planted you right where you are today. No matter what you are doing, be a fragrance of the living Christ to those whose lives you touch. Bloom where you are planted!
