BLOOM!!

Good morning! I had this plant on my porch but wanted to enjoy it more…so I brought it inside.

As I’m typing this, I feel the Lord saying that He is getting ready to move some of you to a different place. It isn’t necessarily a “big” move…but a repositioning. He will be moving you to a place of greater influence and ministry for Him!

HIS Beauty will shine through you and that will not only give Him greater joy but also those around you!

As I placed the plant, I found myself turning it so I could get the greatest view of its blooms. The Lord causes a “turning and shifting” in our lives that will bring Him the greatest glory!

Brothers & Sisters! YOU are a beautiful planting within the Lord’s Garden! Let the Master Gardener do His work!!

May you BLOOM where you are planted by God Almighty!!

OPEN DOORS

We are not to walk through every “open door!”  It is important to discern which open door is for us…which door is from the Lord…and which door is a distraction that would lead us away from God’s best.

We have many choices in our lives. Some choices we know are not good even as we choose them. (Why do we do that!).  But, I thank God that He is able to teach us and use even our bad choices to help us grow.

Sometimes the choices before us are “good” ones and we see no problem with choosing them – especially if it will give us pleasure.  But, even the good choices can become a distraction and lead us away from where the Lord would have us invest our time and energy.

How do we know which choice to make…which door to walk through?  We know by seeking the Lord and by seeking the counsel of godly friends.  God is our Guide; our Wisdom; and the Light that shines upon His path for us and the door we should walk through.

So!  If you are ready for a change in your life and ready to walk through HIS open door – GET READY! He is opening doors right now that will lead us into new territories; new opportunities to influence those around us for His glory; and new ways of doing ministry!

GET READY!!
