bloom where planted

Haggai 1:5-6
Now this is what the LORD Almighty says: "Give careful thought to your ways. You have planted much, but have harvested little. You eat, but never have enough. You drink, but never have your fill. You put on clothes, but are not warm. You earn wages, only to put them in a purse with holes in it."

i have been challenged to get out of my hole and bloom where i am instead of just dreaming of where i want to be...

harsh

hard

reality

but

its

true

i have been so focused on where i want to be. focused on my boys. but have slacked in ministry. i have not been intentional in my relationships.

so today i stepped out of the box and this is what it looked like today to bloom where i am planted

i saw a lady with her two little daughters today while at lunch with some friends. she was speaking in another language and while we were sitting in the play area i introduced myself. i found out that she is from Egypt. she just came here 2 month ago and does not have many mom friends. so i gave her my number and got her number. i am going to be intentional.

i am excited to see what this is going to look like.
