One of the best pieces of advice I’ve ever been given is ‘bloom where you are planted’. When you have something you love to do and you have the seed of a dream within you to share it with the whole world!… Where do you begin?
Do what you do – and – keep doing it. Hone your craft. Study it. Practice it. Do it! I believe that God gives us dreams to inspire us, to stretch us, to motivate us and to keep us moving forward. The truth is the world needs who we were created to be. And God has a plan for just what part of the world gets to experience it.
And then…give your dream to God. It may seem absolutely counter intuitive to hand over your dreams. In fact, at the time, you might even wonder why God would want us to give our gifts and talents and dreams back when He gave them to us in the first place! I believe when we trust God with our deepest dreams we keep His command to love Him above all else.
When we are faithful to our corner of the world, blooming exactly where God has planted us, we may be surprised at where He takes us next. Romans 8:28 (NIV) “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
Bloom where you’re planted.
