Bloom where you are planted

  When the spring—- arrives, we anticipate and feel joyful about the re-birth of lush green plants and it is so exciting to watch them spreading their colours and their sweet smelling flowers— when they bloom in our court yards and the areas all around us. It never ceases to amaze one that how a plant that was seen totally withered out and left for dead can burst forth a few month later into new life.


Walk down any pathway you may find some plant even growing out of seemingly dead rocks. This particular phenomenon one find is very amazing that how anything can spring up from a rock which is dry and apparently lacking in soil and nutrients that are vital to a plant’s growth. It is worth pondering upon that if a plant which God made, can survive under the driest of circumstances then we too can bloom where we are planted.


Too many times one sees people saying to themselves that they would be more successful or happier in life, if only their circumstances were different but if we learn this that in whatever the state—- we must stay content. No matter the situation in our lives, we can grow and flourish when —we abide in God Almighty.


So let’s remember that if God can cause a lily to grow out of a rock, then He can allow you to bloom wherever you are planted.
