Wherever life plants you, bloom with grace.A French Proverb
When I came across this French proverb, I knew it would be the perfect name for this blog.
In thinking about these beautiful words, I like to put my own little twist on it: “Wherever GOD plants you, bloom with grace.” 🙂 As always, when I want to learn more about something, I start by looking up definitions.
the opening of flowers; a state or time of beauty, freshness, and vigor
elegance with appropriate dignity; beauty; a charming or attractive trait
The Lord has planted all of us in different places, different seasons of life . . . and He has called each one of us who are His to the same thing – to live set-apart lives, committed to following Him and sharing His gospel message with a lost world.
A question I have asked myself recently is:
“What am I doing with the time and talents that God has given me? Am I trying to find more ways to serve the Lord where He has planted me, or do I grumble about my circumstances?”
In our world today, the devil is doing his best to fight against Christ and His followers – trying to silence His Word, reverse the roles that God has set up, and erase the lines of good and evil. As Satan tried to entice Eve in the beginning with lies, we as women need to be vigilant against the lies that the world is trying to feed us today.
My prayer for this blog is that it will be a place of encouragement for us young ladies as we press on towards the goal of the call of Christ Jesus and bloom wherever He has planted us!
