It’s May already! Wow 2015 is really flying by fast.
A few weeks ago, I found myself battling with my thoughts and emotions.To make it worse, a few very annoying comments also came my way that week.
You know those days that you’re just finding it difficult to see the picture and all you can see is the mess staring you in the face? Yeah, it was one of those kinds of weeks.
I carried that attitude into God’s presence. Going into God’s presence itself felt like a chore. At it was like God said: Go ahead and rant.
Oh I didn’t need another invitation. I ranted, raved,whined about how I’ve served him, believed him and how despite it all,all I got for my faith was the ‘mess’ I could see. And to make it worse, some people could actually begin to make silly comments?
It’s not fair!
I was gearing up for the second part of the ranting session when one scripture dropped in my spirit that has silenced me since then (for the most part). Read with me:
‘They that sow in tears shall reap in joy’-Psalm 126:5
Listen, Every single thing you do is a seed. Every seed sown will germinate some kind of harvest whether thorns or food.
Any farmer knows that planting season is no fun. It is grueling hard work. It is usually full of sweat,but any farmer worth his salt does it. He goes through the hard planting season.
He knows the joy of the harvest-no matter how long it takes always outweighs the sweat and tears of the sowing season.
So he plants, he weeds and he waters.
He awaits and enjoys the joy of harvest.
Child of God who like me is in the planting season of life where it’s all sweat and tears, hang in there.
A tearful sowing season will give way to a joyful harvest.
Keep your eyes on the goal.A joyful harvest is up ahead.
I’m keeping my eyes of my Joyful Harvest Prize.
Who’s with me?
