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!
