Faithful Fridays ~ Where You're Planted.

Hi everyone!  It's Friday again (which reminds me--has anyone heard that annoying song by Reb*cca Black that says "Friday, Friday" over and over again?  That song won'!  Anyway.

Faithful Fridays is a weekly "meme" hosted on my blog.  I made it so that Christians would have a designated day (Friday) to share something from their Christian walk on their blog.  If you'd like to participate, grab the button above, write your post, and then come link up at the bottom of this post!  :)


Today, I want to share a devotional with you.  It's from the devotional book His Princess (Love Letters from Your King) by Sheri Rose Shepherd.  Love this one!  The title of this particular devotional is "My Princess...Grow Where You are Planted."

"And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them."

-Romans 8:28

I know you sometimes wonder if your life has any real worth.  But I assure you that I can use you to impact those around you.  Just as I used Paul in prison, I will use you wherever you are or whatever circumstance you are in.  Let Me water you with My holy Word, and you will begin to bloom wherever you are planted.  Come to Me in prayer and let Me empower you with My spirit.  Even if you can't see the harvest of your hard work now, I promise that others will one day look back at the time you were in their lives and remember your acts of kindness, words of wisdom, and love for them.  So for now, My valuable princess, let Me help you blossom in a world that is searching for the meaning of life.

Your King and Gardener of Life


God can use us in everyday situations--on the internet, hanging out with friends, helping out in the nursery or children's class at church--any way you can imagine.  So grow where you're planted.

Have a great day and God bless you!
Joy :)

Good morning Joy,

Yes, even though we can't always see the results of the seeds we plant (or water), we know God uses us whereever we are, if we're willing to be used.

I just love these devotions. They seem to be perfect for the day they are needed, right?

I love you! 10!

How incredibly encouraging this is!

I want you to know that you're an absolutely beautiful girl. I've read your mama's blog for quite some time. I'm so glad to see yours as well. You look to be around the age of my Emily, 14, almost 15.

Her blog is

Blessings upon you from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

This was wonderful, Joy~ Romans 8:28 is one of my favorites and one verse I've had to cling to many times in my life when things just didn't seem to be working in my favor.
I enjoyed the passage from His Princess (Love Letters from Your King) too~ it sounds like a wonderful book!
