I was blessed to watch Pastor Joel Osteen last night and his message was Blossom Where You Are Planted!
The gist of the message was no matter where you are, what type of job you hold right now, whether you hate it or love, whether your boss is unbearable or pleasant, whether you are under/over/non employed. Blossom where you are!
Everything is not about you. As believers and as children of God we are Kingdom Builders. So you may be in an uncomfortable situation for someone else's gain. You may be at your current job so that your light can shine. It is not the time for you to be negative and complaining because things aren't going your way it is the time to be joyful, thankful and have a spirit of praise at all times.
God may ask you to put up with certain things that are uncomfortable in order to help another person.
Everything that you go through is all apart of his large plan for your life.
If you stay in faith then wherever you are is where you are supposed to be if you are single but desire marriage, stay faithful! If you are unemployed, desiring an assignment, stay faithful! If you are a divorcee with children, stay faithful! STAY FAITHFUL and trust God!
Philippians 4:10-13 10 I rejoice greatly in the Lord that at last you have renewed your concern for me. Indeed, you have been concerned, but you had no opportunity to show it. 11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do everything through him who gives me strength.
Lets move to being Kingdom minded and to standing firm on the Word of God. The Word teaches you to obey, worship, praise, pray, have faith, hope, and act in love. Not to worry, fret, fear, and be in despair. Wherever you are is exactly where God wants you to be. Spend time with Him to determine his purpose and plan for where you are. When it is your time to move trust He will promote you to another position! However, for right now Blossom Where You Are Planted.
Be a blessing and be blessed,
