When God plants you in a certain place, He doesn’t plant you there for just pleasure. He plants you there because that is where you are to grow into the person He created you to be. Criticism will come. Hurt will come. But if Jesus was able to endure the criticism and the hurt while He walked this earth, then you can too. Don’t doubt God’s plan. Believe that what He has for you is bigger than what you can even imagine and allow yourself to grow into that perfect plan.
When my family relocated to Indiana, I knew God wanted me here but I was hesitant to actually believe that God would do something special in my life. Four years later, I have experienced change and growth. God planted me here with the purpose to fulfill His perfect plan in my life. It took some time for it to sink in, and I even gave myself six months before I moved backed to Florida but Gods perfect plan always wins. I ended up staying where I was planted, I began my writing ministry, and I married and amazing man. I have blossomed and still have more blossoming to do.
I am not sure why God put these words in my heart but I felt the need to share it today. We all go through situations where we may feel rejected or let down and feel like running from our surroundings BUT GOD…. God will not allow you to go through something that you cannot handle. He will not give you more than you can take. Trust and believe when I say that I have been through so much in my life but I am still standing. I am still growing, still maturing, and I am still blossoming where God has planted me.
You have a seed inside of you that is waiting to be watered. Let the Holy Spirit come into your life and water that seed and you will see the great things the Lord has for your life.
