After my morning walk, I approached my house and was amazed to see what looked like a sunflower growing in the midst of my rose bush.
We’ve lived here for fourteen years. The spot was once a fish pond. We did away with that about nine years ago. In its place, I’ve planted peonies, a couple of rose bushes, and lilies, but never a sunflower seed.
How cool it was that God planted it there. Whether a weed or a sunflower, it grew not next to the roses, but in the midst of the rose bush.
God’s precious voice reminding me that we need to stay where He has planted us and He will grow us up. We may feel like a sunflower or more like a weed. We may not know why we’re planted in a certain spot, or see what the purpose is until He starts to grow us and we rise among the roses.
Never doubt where God has you or why, just watch for Him, trust Him and He will fulfill His purpose in your life.
Nothing can stop God’s plan for your life. For the Lord Almighty has a purposed, and who can thwart him? His hand is stretched our, and who can turn it back? Isaiah 14:27
