Bloom Where You're Planted
I've always loved this saying and to be honest generally related it to my immediate family, but this morning I had a fresh revelation! I would think most people reading this would know how involved in the Above Rubies ministry I am and how much I believe in home making and training our children (don't always feel like I'm doing a great job in this area though to be honest) but I often feel saddened that there are not any other mothers who feel that way (that I am aware of) in my hometown, with whom I could meet up and be encouraged. I know many other mothers around the country feel the same. But this morning I suddenly realised while pondering this whole issue that God has put me here for a reason, to be a witness - even to other christian mothers who may not have had the same revelation regarding children and family life yet - and to build relationships with those who are around me. All the time leaning on God for the encouragement and support and utilising the internet which has provided me with much appreciated support, and praying for HIS will to be done. I'm praying that I won't waste time bemoaning my circumstances but look to God for His plans and discover what He wants me to learn.
