A Post from John…
To me, this is a wonderful visual showing the goodness of God. His intentions are for us to not only be content wherever we find ourselves but also to help and encourage those around us. How do we find the desire, strength and ability to be a help to those we come in contact? How do we effectively encourage one another? The answers comes in the choice we make in the source of our ‘food and water’.
If we choose to ‘feed and drink’ on impurity, hatred, discord, jealousy, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy… the ugly things people do in this world… we will produce ‘bad fruit’. But if we are ‘feeding and drinking’ on love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control, we will produce ‘good fruit’.
So, BLOOM WHERE YOU ARE PLANTED and with God’s help, choose to produce ‘good fruit’, that you may help and encourage those that come into your path where ever you live.
Thank you, John, for this reminder. We are in a time of transition and it's easy to focus on what God may have planned for the next step and forget to bloom right here where He has us right now! I love reading your words here. I'm glad you've joined your sweet wife on the blog. What a blessing you are!
John, this is beautiful! I've never seen anyone comment on the "food and water", yet that's so critical. This is a keeper.
Great, inspiring post! I, too, love, love PicMonkey but I did not know how to do this and appreciate your sharing the "how to." Happy new week!
