Small seeds planted and watered faithfully over a long period of time will produce something.
It’s just a fact. I’m actually a farming expert, now that we live in Nebraska (not!)
But I do have a greater appreciation for and understanding of how that whole planting and reaping thing works. Because I saw some real corn growing a couple times. [“Greater” as in, greater than before. Not great in general. Lest there be any confusion, I have created a clarifying visualization about how my knowledge of farming has increased.]
Sometimes in life, it seems like you are planting very tiny seeds. And it feels like your seeds will never grow. Like, the next thing isn’t ever coming.
Like you’ll never get the promotion
your kids will never grow up
your boss will never see your potential
your peers will never accept you
you will never make a friend in your new neighborhood
you will never be in a different season
your kids will never come home
Hard as it may be, lay your feelings aside, friends, and cling to this principle that farmers and long-time followers of Jesus know to be true: You will reap what you sow. Your seeds will grow. Keep planting in faithfulness. Your harvest is coming.
(This of course begs the question – what are you sowing?)
