There are no accidents or randomness in God’s universe.
Ponder the Text: “A blessing is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes. Its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit. -Jeremiah 17:7-8
Prompt for Thought: Despite where you are planted, even if you were expecting to be there, how can you be a blessing? How can you bloom where you are planted?
Prayer for the Journey: God, thank you God for calling us according to your purpose. While we are grateful, sometimes it means you change our plans and take us to unexpected places. When this happens, please help us to trust your will, plan, and purpose for our lives. Help us to be the people you have called us to be and do what you have called us to do when and where you called us to do those things. God, thank you for helping us to bloom no matter where we are planted. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
