Bloom Where You’re Planted—on paper, it may be a simple concept, but in reality, it is one of the most challenging tasks a Christian will ever face, especially during hard times. I discovered this firsthand after being diagnosed with epilepsy as a teenager. I was swept off my mountain and found myself smack-dab in the middle of the valley of shadow and doubt. The truth is, this unexpected change of scenery was exactly what I needed if I was ever going to stop focusing on the plans I created and start focusing on God’s plan instead. The journey through the valley is never easy, but embracing the will God has intended for your life is a good start. I may not be through my valley just yet, but as I’ve learned over the span of eight years while dealing with epilepsy, God’s plan is perfect and dependable. Blooming where you’re planted is more than simply embracing your current circumstances; it is choosing to root yourself in Christ. Only then can you grow to fulfill the purpose created for you by Almighty God.
