Bloom Anyway

At times in your life you may find yourself in a transparent place, where everyone can see your faults, failures and shortcomings...where it doesn't seem there is enough space for you to grow. Bloom anyway.Other times you may find yourself in a vulnerable place where you stand the chance of being walked over and taken advantage of. Bloom anyway.

...bloom anyway...

You may find yourself in a rocky, desolate situation without a good support system or a really good place to dig your roots in. Bloom anyway.
Eric's Wife put it very eloquently "What choice does a flower have about its location? ...Not much. As long as there is sun and water, that flower is going to bloom. No amount of complaining that the conditions aren’t perfect can in any way change the purpose of the flower. It simply has to bloom. It is important to remember that you are exactly where God needs you to be this very instant in order to do the work He has planned for you. You may not be where you want to be and the conditions may not appear perfect, but I highly recommend you ignore the forecasts and bloom anyway."

The Bible puts it even better "Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don't get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes." (The Message)
