What have you been up to? Do you feel that you have made progress on your most important projects? And by that, I don’t necessarily mean ‘work’.
Work and production are important for sure, but people are more!
What key relationships have you sown into this week?
More and more as I go forward I realise that connection is paramount in everything that we do.
Connection with God through prayer, Word, worship, and fellowship.
Connection with our loved ones and circle of influence through intentional interactions into which we generously sow ourselves, our time, and our money.
Connection with ourselves and our work by prioritizing projects that align with who we are as people.
It is easy to keep the wheels moving in directions we didn’t even want to go in the first place. Sometimes life defaults us into practices and projects that pay the bills but leave our soul dry.
Whatever you do, if you have not already done so, be sure to bump your heart projects up the priority scale.
Again, I’m not ignorant to the fact that bills need to be paid, or that passion projects can sometimes seem so frivolous because they don’t come with a promise of remuneration tied to them.
What they are pregnant with however is possibility.
Your productivity in the direction of your passion and areas of genuine interest feed something deeper than your bank account, and for sure if priority is never placed on them they will never see the light of day and open the door for miracles to take place.
So many success stories begin by providential ‘accident’. Someone sows toward an idea or dream and suddenly new vistas open for their own growth and delight.
They then share that delight with the world and discover that there are other people who share their challenges and passions.
This junction is were possibilities open up that you never anticipated.
All of the convoluted promises we have pushed on us every day through adverts and promotions can leave us numb to the real value of stepping out.
Sowing For Eternity
It is my firm belief that each one of us is called to disciple others. To take what we have and generously share it with others.
That belief goes further and tells me that for every seed sown there is an inevitable return.
Keep sowing friends.
And begin by sowing to yourself. Acknowledging that there is inherent value in what you write, sing, play, make or paint.
Your worship it is not measured by bottom lines and net incomes, it is measured by obedience to a heavenly call.
This life is a journey of discovery shaping you for eternity, and whether our seeds sown bear fruit here and now, or in generations to come, you can be certain of one thing – they will bear fruit in eternity!
Life here is fleeting, like the grass it’s here today and gone tomorrow.
Lift your eyes to see your Father’s smile.
He is cheering you on.
Jesus is Lord!
The Author and Finisher of your faith.
And like Him, you too are an author (a creator) and a finisher – someone who sees things through despite the obstacles and diversions that present themselves.
