Bloom. 🌻

There is a reason why you are in the place in your life that you are. Your job. School. Where you live. Your daily situations, routines, & struggles. I know that at times it can seem like you are no longer making forward strides, at a stand still, or even are moving backwards. As if everyone around you is flourishing and you continue to feel like there are nothing but weeds all around you. Like God isn’t there with you anymore & has forgotten you. 

Well let me tell you this………

It’s in these moments that you will ALWAYS have the choice as to how you will proceed. Even if you don’t feel Him, know He’s there. He will always be your strength of you ask for it. Seek to find the good things, the lesson, and the blessings that exist in your space. Are you pulling on Him, or are you looking to something else to satisfy you & give you that strength? 

17 And don’t be wishing you were someplace else or with someone else. Where you are right now is God’s place for you. Live and obey and love and believe right there. God, not your marital status, defines your life. Don’t think I’m being harder on you than on the others. I give this same counsel in all the churches.

1 Corinthians 7:17 | MSG

Embrace the season that you are in right now. Know that you are continuing to grow & are being developed with every breath you take. Your story is special & unique! Stay true to the God that lives within you, the One who provides for you, the One who loves you & will always be there for you. I constantly would try to uproot myself and move to where EYE felt was appropriate………but God doesn’t work like that. He see so much further than we ever will, and it will all come together in due time! Just be patient and seek to find the good in everything. Flourish my friend, flourish!

Bloom where you are planted, & appreciate the journey that He has you on. And to the bright future ahead of you! 

Love you, be encouraged & blessed! ♥️

Yours but more importantly His,
