Bloom Where You're Planted

A few years ago, I grew frustrated with these flowers in my flowerbed that were not growing how I had hoped they would. 

Therefore, I plucked them all up.

The next spring, however, as I walk out the house, I see one purple flower peeking through the dirt.

This persistent, stubborn flower made the bold decision to bloom where it was planted.


I say to the flower, “What are you doing? I thought I got rid of you and your friends last year!”

The flower replies, “I know all my friends are gone. I know I’m not supposed to be here. But God is not finished with me yet.”

Like this flower, you can bloom where you’re planted, because God is not finished with you yet.
