not so often experience

Today I had a chance to see part of the harvest of some seeds sown long ago. About two years ago I went to Mount Zion Baptist Church to help build their community center, and today was the dedication. It was amazing to see the looks on peoples' faces, and how happy they were. They were all so excited about the new facility. It was all very encouraging. One day, we will get to Heaven, and get to know the outcome of the seeds we have sown. However, it is nice sometimes to get a glimpse of the plant we planted long ago.

Okay, I kind of have a side note to go along with this (what became) a really short post. I was thinking when I started it on Saturday, ok I'll say some positive and encouraging and something like it will all be okay, God will provide a way to see your fruits on earth, or something like that. However, when I went to look in my bible for the "perfect verse" it wasn't there. So I asked some of my good friends and family what they thought (thank you very much guys for your input). I soon began to realize that we don't always get to see the results here. That is not why we should witness. Some times it is hard when you feel like you're not making a difference, but you don't know that. You do not know the condition of someone's heart. I pray that we will continue to be a shinning city on a hill to those around us, even when we fill that we are not making a difference.



It's not about the results, but the call: Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. (Mathew 28:19-20)

Your blog reminds me of Hebrews 11:1, "Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see." Faith is what keeps you sowing seeds for Christ, because even though you do not see immediate results, you trust that God is growing a bountiful harvest. This is why the great saints of Hebrews 11 were so greatly commended. They followed God and obeyed Him even when they did not see all He was doing. This warms the heart of God and prompts Him to bless all who walk by faith!
Blessing!
