Bloom where you're planted!

Friday, January 30, 2015

by George Whitten, Editor of Worthy Devotions

2 Corinthians 10:12b but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.

An ancient legend tells of a king who walked into his garden one day to find almost everything withered and dying. After speaking to an oak near the gate, the king learned that he was troubled because he was not tall and beautiful like the pine. The pine overheard their conversation and added that she, too, was upset, for she could not bear delicious fruit like the pear tree. The pear tree heard his name and began to complain that he did not have the lovely odor of the spruce. And so it went throughout the entire garden.

Near the very edge of the garden grew a little daisy. As the king approached, he noticed her bright little face, full of life. "Well, little flower," said the monarch, "I'm glad to find that there is at least one happy face in my garden."

"Oh king," she said, "I know I'm little, and not many people notice me, but one day I realized that you if planted me here, you must have had a good reason. So, your majesty, I've determined to be the best little flower I can be!"

Our King has planted a beautiful garden. Not one of us is greater than the next. It is his His perfection.

We must come to a place where we trust that God has a reason for creating us the way He has and has planted us in just the place he desired. Comparing ourselves with one another will only make us wither. When we become satisfied in His creation (that is us), that's when we'll find true happiness".. and we will shine.

Let's give God our all our disappointments and be determined to be the best that we can be for Him!

    I found this very encouraging! We all need to shine in the place God has put us! Let's be encouraged by this and shine as much as we can for Christ!

    We can be like the tree or the shrub or the evergreen, but to be like that daisy and grow as the master intended. We then become like the tree planted by the water. Our roots will dig deep and our stem and branches will flourish. Others will see Christ in us and we will be doing what God meant for us.

    This is what I have as my email signature;

    Bloom where you are planted…until God moves you!

    "Be glad for ALL God is planning for you. (Your Name Here) Be patient in trouble and prayerful always. "
