Grow Where You are Planted

Created to Flourish

Everyone is born great (created in God’s image and likeness) irrespective of the world’s standards and measures of greatness. Look inwards to see and believe in what God has invested in you.

Victor not Victim

Joseph like all God’s children was born great, beloved son of his father. Unlike most, he was not afraid to see the vision of who he is created to be. As the saying goes, …… and life happens, he was deserted, despised, hated and alone at the bottom of the pit his brother threw him in (Genesis chapter 37-50).

While in prison for a crime he did not commit, his star finally shone, because he choose to use the talent God gave him, he eventually triumphed, and he rose to the highest seat of the land where nobody knew his parents (no cronies or godfather). Do not be tired of doing good or working hard, your reward is surely on its way (Galatians 6:9).

Food for thought

No matter your stage in life, do not be anxious or tired, continue growing where you are planted, distinguish yourself by  excellent service and patience.  You will move on to the next stage of your life and eventually become the head of your genre. In joseph’s case the prime minister of Egypt.


Dear Lord help me to invest MY TIME in living out who I AM.

“It was planted in a good soil by great waters, that it might bring forth branches, and that it might bear fruit, that it might be a goodly vine” (Ezekiel 17:8).
