|Blooming in the Cacti Patch|
How discouraging at times when, after years since that healing, I slip back into a negative pattern. It begins with thoughts like, "How stupid can I be," and "Me and my big mouth messed up again, or "I can't do anything right."
Jesus is our example. He counteracted temptation with God's Word, so yesterday, I began quoting such things as:
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Marvelous are Your works. Psalm 139:14 NKJV
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here.
2 Corinthians 5:17 NIV
|Blooming in the Valley|
My hubby and I and good friends took our travel trailers to the Texas hill country this month. The bluebonnets were prettier than I'd seen them in many years. Because of this, I was reminded today of a quote I heard somewhere.
"Bloom wherever you're planted."
|Blooming by the Roadside|
Where are you planted at this moment?
By the roadside?
In the cacti patch?
In the valley?
A sweet online friend, Gail Kittleson, uses a tagline for her writing that I love.
Dare to Bloom
Just as God planted these bluebonnets in unlikely places along a lonely road, God in us makes something beautiful.
Are you blooming where God has placed you right now? I'm working on it.
