The Weekend Brew: Bloom Where You Are Planted — 33 Comments

  1. Sage advice, Barbie! That’s exactly what I’m trying to do. During this season of my life, I’m not working outside of the home, my children are grown and gone, and we live in a new town and haven’t connected yet…HOWEVER, God has blessed me with a wonderful husband! I will seek to bloom as a wife who takes pleasure in loving and caring for her man. I pray that God will bless my husband through my efforts!

    Trusting Him, Joan

  2. Amen Barbie! There is something special about everyone, and no matter what anyone else says, God specially created us and is very proud of who we are. It doesn’t matter if we are plain, ordinary, everyday people, He doesn’t require any special talents or requirements. The only thing He requires is for us to bloom and shine exactly where we are! 🙂

    Blessings and hugs,

  3. Sometimes where God plants us isn’t a bed of roses! Sometimes we’re surrounded by weeds! BUT…the Lord knows what He’s doing, and He can give pour His Living Water on us, and add some SONshine – and just watch us bloom!!


  4. Oh friend…the second note of encouragement you left for those in the workplace spoke right to my heart. I believe I may need to print those words and hang them in my office. It tends to be one of the hardest places for me to shine His light. Thank you! You are a blessing!!!

  5. OH, yes, He has planted us right where we are today and even though we may not always be happy with where we are, He has a purpose. Great post Barbie!

  6. What a great reminder. Sometimes I think I need this reminder more than once…like everyday. I think we forget that we aren’t just in some random place at some random time. We are a flower planted by God to bloom for His glory. This fits nice with my Wildflowers post…I’ll be linking to you:)

  7. Thanks for the wonderful reminder! Work for God right where you are and grow into the person He created you to be. I was fighting this one today thanks for bring me back where I need to be.


  8. I love this, Barbie, ’cause way too often we’re yearning for another time or place instead of being purely in the moment, savoring what is happening right in front of our noses!

    Enjoy the weekend, friend!

  9. I adore the saying, “Bloom where you are planted.” It became the inspiration for one of my blogs, When Hearts Bloom. And I adore the apostle Paul’s words. If we can learn from someone who overcame, it would be Paul! Thank you so much for this gentle message today. Blessings!

  10. What a wonderful word here, Barbie. May we remember that where we are today may not necessarily be where we will always be. God has a way of moving us through varied stages of life. Yet where we are today, at this moment, is where we need to be. Thank you for this reminder.
    Have a great Saturday,

    • Thank you Dawn. I am actually able to eat a little bit more tonight, without anything major happening in my body. Yes, I say we are making progress! Thanks for your prayers!
