This is a saying, common on Mary Engelbreit art, as well as on my prayer journal.
Bloom Where You're Planted!
I think this can really be a great quote for some of us stay at home moms. Let me elaborate! :) I used to think that since I was a SAHM that I couldn't touch the world for Jesus. I felt like I couldn't do all the wonderful things He wanted me to do. However, I looked up exactly what BLOOM means and here it is:
- To shine; glow.
- To grow or flourish with youth and vigor.
A way I try to glow from my home is sending cards out to people. Just totally random. Just a thinking of you/praying for you card. I send to whomever God lays on my heart. I feel this is one way He can use me.
What are some ways you "Glow from your home"? Can you imagine the effect it could have on unbelievers if we had more homes glowing consistently? If you feel like you can't touch others from your home....you are mistaken. I challenge you to recognize that God planted you where you are for a reason and never forget that. Please sign up on Mr.Linky and share with us how you Glow From Your Home! Also...please take a button to add to the sidebar of your blog so maybe we can get more people glowing for Him!
