Bloom
~ where you are planted

In writing to the Philippians, St. Paul added a thought at the end of his letter; "All the saints greet you, chiefly they that are of Caesar's household". Phil .4: 22.
St. Paul, writing from Rome as a prisoner, discovered something amazing. I.e. even with all its immoralities and crimes, there were saints in Caesar's palace. God has a way of scattering His seed everywhere. They bloom in the most unlikely places.

Bloom where you are planted. Your attitude more than anything else will determine whether you are a success or a failure. Once God said to Moses, "What is in your hand?". Moses answered, "a rod". God must have smiled and said, "Ah, but don't underestimate that rod". What's under your feet? What's in your hand? Here are four simple and workable tips that will help you bloom where you are planted. You can be a flower in a craggy wall, a saint in Caesar's palace. You can be a positive thinker in a world of negative thinkers.
You can bloom where you are.

1. BELIEVE THAT GOD HAS NO WASTE BASKETS:

Remember this principle - there's a purpose for every place and every person under the sun. God does not believe in waste. There is nothing that, in His mind, has to be thrown away as worthless. Think positively and start to bloom where you are.
(I cor. 1:26-31).

2. BELIEVE THE BEST ABOUT EVERY SITUATION:

Look for the best in every place, and believe the best about every person. That's an essential attitude of all Supersuceessful Possibility Thinking persons. The most dangerous person in the world is a negative thinker who puts two and two together. Believe the best about others - persons, positions and institutions. Rom. 8:28, Phil. 2:3.

3. BE A POSITIVE REACTIONARY:

lt's not what happens to you, but how you react to circumstances that determines whether you will bloom where you are, or dry up where you are. So develop the habit of reacting positively to negative conditions, (2cor. 1:3-8).

4. TRUST GOD CONFIDENTLY:

You had nothing to do for your existence in this world today. But God has been guiding you. He has a plan for you. St Paul writes: "And l am sure that He who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. "(Phil. 1:6). Dare to believe that.

JESUS CHRIST REALLY MAKES THE DIFFERENCE HE CAN TAKE

A HEART THAT IS A DESERT AND MAKE IT BLOSSOM LIKE A ROSE. BELIEVE THAT!

TRY IT, AND YOU WILL START REJOICING WHEREVER YOU ARE. AMEN!

"The wilderness and the desert …shall rejoice and blossom as the rose; it shall blossom abundantly and rejoice'…. Isaiah 35:1-2.

Be encouraged,
