Bloom where You’re Transplanted

It is often said, “bloom where you’re planted”, but as comforting as that thought may appear it is also saying, “Don’t try anything new” (Peter didn’t listen so he walked on water) or “Don’t go far from home” (Paul traveled constantly despite shipwrecks, prisons and constant opposition) and “you can never do more than you have done in the past” But then God came to the shepherd Moses in the burning bush and sent him to set His people free! Never be afraid to do something new and different if God has chosen to dig you up and transplant you to another part of His garden!

 Behold, I am doing a new thing;
    now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?
I will make a way in the wilderness
    and rivers in the desert   Isaiah 43:19

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.

  1. Thanks. Spending time in other people’s gardens sometimes has its benefits. Some of these blooms hold that freshness only for a day or two. Your garden is so beautiful. I am waiting to see more! What works in that Texas heat?

  2. Thank you, Pastor Pete, this is beautiful as well as timely. I’ve been thinking of Moses lately and trying not to shy away from a speaking opportunity. “We can do all things through Christ…”
    Blessings ~ Wendy
