Sunday Verses

Happy Sunday! I am sure you have heard the saying, "Bloom where you are planted". Sometimes that seems so contrary to what we want or to where we think we should be in our lives. Queen Esther did not think that she was in the right place or position to help her people. But, God knew Esther was where she needed to be to save a nation. And God has YOU where He wants--in this time and in this place and He can use you right where you are. He may have you in a job or a neighborhood or a relationship where He can work through you today. When you are feeling restless, when you are wishing and wanting something different, remember that God has created you for "such a time as this" and listen to what He wants to do for you and through you.

    1. Thank you! I often have to remind myself that I was born in this time for a reason. I sometimes long for simpler times, like the 1800's where mass shootings and terrorism didn't exist (I know they faced other hardships). I wrote this before I knew about the Orlando tragedy, but it did remind me that God wants me to be living in this place and time.
