This afternoon my hubby and I had just come out of the shops in our little town and were about to drive away, when I glanced up at the ancient thousand-year old wall that is part of the heritage of our town. There, incongruously, growing out from between the ancient rocks of the wall, was a little plant!
I just had to get out and photograph it.
Just Doing What Plants Do!
For a few weeks I’ve been in a “wilderness season”, so something about that little plant spoke directly to my heart.
There it was, just doing what plants do – bright green leaves and stem, with pretty pink flowers blooming. Oh and did I mention that in Northern Ireland we’re in the middle of a heatwave and haven’t had rain for weeks?
Do you think the plant said to the Creator God at any point, “why am I growing out of a stone wall?” Or refused to produce flowers because it didn’t feel the environment was right?
Just Doing What Christians Do!
You and I are called to bloom right where God planted us – whether it feels to us like a beautiful meadow or a dry, ancient wall.
If this is you today, remember that God planted you there for a purpose; it wasn’t random, He hasn’t forgotten about you – He’s waiting for you to flourish and bloom right where you are.
