Bloom and Grow {Free Printable Kit}

We all hear that you should bloom where you are planted.  What does that mean, though? And is it really even possible?

Let's talk about it for a minute.

1 Timothy 6:6-8 says “godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content.”

From how I see it, in order to bloom, we must be content.  But let's be honest, this is hard sometimes.

In Philippians 4:11-13, Paul says “Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need.  I can do all things through him who strengthens me”

So, let's back up and think about what contentment is.  Paul implies in this passage that he has learned the secret to this.  And it is Christ.

It comes from putting your focus on Jesus and allowing him to become your strength.

This is what will take your attention off your current circumstances and allow you to be content in them.  Keeping your eyes firmly on Jesus.  It will cause you to overflow with gratitude for what he has done, and for what he continues to do in your life.

Enjoy this free printable as a reminder.

He planted you where you are.  The joy of the Lord is your strength.  And when you come to truly know this, you will bloom.
