We Sow and He Gathers

And He said, The kingdom of God is like a man 
who scatters seed upon the ground,
He sleeps and rises while the seed grows--
he knows not how. Mark 4

The stories that Jesus told continue to speak.
Today, this speaks a word of encouragement 
about His faithfulness with what we bring Him.
He is eternally faithful.

Daughter, every prayer you pray, 
every word you hold, 
every care you release, 
every thought you command,
with a heart of reverence for me...
I gather them as seeds to sow back into your day.
Whether you sleep or get up, 
the seeds grow, though you are unaware.
You give Me that which costs you something
--your time, your heart, your trust.
I take it and pour back abundantly more 
than you can ask or imagine.
Know that I am ordering your day.
Bring everything that concerns you to Me
for I will take care of it ALL.
Scatter your prayer seeds and I will gather them.
This day has My blessing, My approval, 
and My love written all over it.

He takes my smallest offering, 
calls it a seed and takes
responsibility for its growth.
Our peace is proportionate to 
our trust in His goodness.
He is always faithful.
