Caffeinated Randomness:: Sowing and Reaping

A man reaps what he sows… Let us not become weary in doing what is good for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”
Galatians 6:7,9
It is so easy for me forget the eternal importance of my every thought, word and deed. Yes, Jesus Christ died for my sins! I am forgiven and eternity is settled for me – He has prepared a room for me in heaven. But, what I do while on earth still matters!
There is still this system of sowing and reaping. If I sow in anger, I will reap bitterness. If I sow in love and compassion, I will reap joy.
What we sow is a daily choice, and I am saddened to say that I do not always choose correctly. I am becoming more and more aware of this process as time goes on and I begin to reap some of what I have sown in the past. Not all of it is good. I did my thesis in college on St Francis of Assisi – this man fascinates me! The prayer he submitted to God is the same I find in my heart today:

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy.”
My hearts desire is to be a woman of God and in this life sow the good things that will result in a reaping of the fruits of the spirit “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self – control” Galatians 5:22

May we all be encouraged and motivated to live a life sowing for God so that HE may reap the harvest in the end! It’s all about Him – and His Glory – forever and ever. Amen LET US NOT GROW WEARY!
