Grow and blossom where you are planted.

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.

I love getting together with friends and sharing with each other over a cup of coffee what God is doing in our lives, it boosts my faith and lifts my heart. That's the aim of this blog. There's a story behind it; It was inspired after a friend gave me a single mustard seed, saying ‘that’s all it takes Jill’. What my friend didn’t know was that the very same morning God had reminded me of a promise He'd made to me over 20 years before regarding writing. I took the mustard seed home, planted it and watched it grow from a tiny sapling to a large, flourishing shrub at our front door. Every time I look at it it reminds me that our God is always true to his promises. Jesus lives in and works through his people, every single day. It's good to share what he's doing! I love talking about Him and writing about Him.
