Bloom or Grow❤

We often hear "Bloom where you're planted" but more than blooming, we need to be growing where we are planted.  Sometimes it is not the season for blooms.  Your love, ministry, friendship, and heart may not always be accepted or appreciated.  Sometimes people can be deceived by flattery, smoothe talk and schemes of the devil.  However, when its all said and done God sees and hears and knows the motives of all men's hearts.  Dont be discouraged today if it looks as if evil is winning...David felt like that many times which led him to write:

Psalm 37
A psalm of David.
1 Don’t worry about the wicked
    or envy those who do wrong.
2 For like grass, they soon fade away.
    Like spring flowers, they soon wither.

3 Trust in the Lord and do good.
    Then you will live safely in the land and prosper.
4 Take delight in the Lord,
    and he will give you your heart’s desires.

5 Commit everything you do to the Lord.
    Trust him, and he will help you.
6 He will make your innocence radiate like the dawn,
    and the justice of your cause will shine like the noonday sun.

7 Be still in the presence of the Lord,
    and wait patiently for him to act.
Don’t worry about evil people who prosper
    or fret about their wicked schemes.

8 Stop being angry!
    Turn from your rage!
Do not lose your temper—
    it only leads to harm.
9 For the wicked will be destroyed,
    but those who trust in the Lord will possess the land.

So wherever God has you planted matter how hard the circumstances...let your roots go down deep into God's Word and let His Spirit bring you life and growth.  God will take care of the weeds🌻
