Where are you planted? Where has God called you?
I was recently told about the aspen tree and how it grows. It was said that our calling is much like the aspen tree. You see when an aspen tree is planted, it grows in clusters. Then its roots are not only connected to each other but also to the next cluster of aspen trees, even if they are miles away.
As aspen trees can stretch across thousands of miles all inter connected to each other, we too as Christian's can do the same thing by following the aspen trees example. When we choose to be a part of the church God has called us to, and choose to plant ourselves and grow there. We are not only positively affecting the growth the immediate family of God we are in, but also impacting the thousands of other believers we are connected to.
The encouragement is short today, while simple and complex. The simple part is all we have to do is grow where we are called, and plant ourselves in the family of God around us. The complex part is up to God, for as we join in the strength of others, we together will reach a world that needs to experience God's love where ever God brings us. Remembering we are always connected to our source of life, God in each other!
As a Child of God, where is God carrying you today? Do you realize how precious you are to Him & how much He loves you? Our divine relationship with our Father God as His precious children is unique, as He reveals himself differently to us all!
God wants us to know how much He loves us and how special we are to Him. He reveals himself in ways that we receive His love. When we choose to trust God and follow His voice, He chooses to carry us, as He provides for our needs and even brings us joy in our sadness.
I have heard many testimonies of how God has provided for His children. I'm always amazed at how each person experiences God in the way they are capable of receiving His love. It reminds me of the 5 love languages and how each of us is created differently in how we give and receive love. It shouldn't surprise us then when God loves us through the very love languages He created us to experience His love.
Whether we have gone through a lonely time, and God wants to remind us of how important we are to Him. Or whether we are in need for Him to show up in a BIG way because we have accepted His call and can't fulfill it on our own. God promises us to always be with us. He encourages us to stand firm on His promise that He will not abandon us nor forsake us!
It tells us in God's Word three times that God will not leave us nor forsake us:
Be encouraged TODAY! God is with YOU! He wants you to know HE LOVES YOU and that you are PRECIOUS to Him, because you are HIS KID!
Is this you?
.Do you want to know God more? Do you want someone to help you do so? Do you want someone to walk alongside you who has been in your shoes? Do you feel alone? Do you want to experience the healthier and happier you?
