I have tried to think of any other post than this one to write. I thought I could write on how my roots are now a brilliantly colored blonde….or just less disturbing to the natural eye. Or, I could write about how I saved my family money once again by shopping at Crest Foods. Or, how Anna is learning not to respond to adults with “Isn’t there someone else you can go talk to?”
But, I just can’t write about any of those things. Not today.
Let’s start with honesty.
I’ve lived in Oklahoma for a little over five years now. Some days I do it kicking and screaming. Other days, I am okay. Reality is….I miss Georgia. Not really the state itself, although we do have trees there. I miss my family. I miss the covenant relationships I have with so many wonderful friends. I miss Eagles Way Church. I miss ministering there.
I do well most days. But, then I struggle immensely other days.
GROW WHERE YOU’RE PLANTED.
How can Dusty Takle fulfill the call of God on her life when she isn’t allowing herself to grow where she is planted?
And, why is she speaking in third person?
Well, I’ve made a decision to do just that. To grow wherever I am. In whatever situation I’m in. In whatever climate I’m dressing for.
Because, I don’t want to miss God.
That’s how I feel today. Tomorrow, I might need a pep talk. Today, I’m okay.
Grow where you’re planted. Cindy writes, “I am confident that God will meet you where you are.”
And, He just might use you to do great things.
