Seeds and Struggles

Hello friends, it’s been a while. I trust you all are doing great. I’ve been in the valley of decision and transition for a while. I’m believing God for more opportunities to share great contents here soonest.

I was inspired to share some lessons I have learnt in the valley of decisions earlier today. I am sure we all have some hard-learned lessons and hard-earned blessings in our darkest hours.

I have come to realise that most times, the people with the sweetest smiles and biggest blessings in public are those who have shed a million tears and made hard choices secretly.

A friend shot this on Sunday. πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°

Before we covet people’s fruit we must seek to know the kind of seed, seasons and struggles that produced their harvest. Great harvests don’t just happen. Some folks go through hell and high water before occupying their place in grace.

Some blessings are not just answered prayers or products of ‘grace’ (luck), they are rewards of strenuous sacrifices and hard choices.

God is a God of principles, you can’t manipulate Him with prayers. Some things are activated with strict obedience, diligence and resilience.

This does not mean that prayer is not necessary, in fact, prayer supplies the strength l, wisdom and grace required to sustain the blessings of God.

However, we must embrace the wisdom to combine prayer, faith and action in the right proportion. In knowing this, be encouraged and empowered to excel. I would like to share one of my anchor-scriptures with you.

In his kindness God called you to share in his eternal glory by means of Christ Jesus. So after you have suffered a little while, he will restore, support, and strengthen you, and he will place you on a firm foundation. 1 Peter 5:10

Shalom.

    1. Thank you, Sally. We all have unique seeds and uncommon fruits. We must focus on cultivating our fields and stop coveting the greener grass on the other side.

      Our fields get greener when we nurture it well.

  1. Indeed in every set of circumstances the sacrifice is unique. We sacrifice ourselves for our families, for love, our people and our countries differently. We sacrifice our own lives to put food on the table and to reap the harvest under different circumstances.
    It’s a valuable lesson you bring home to us. We should also cherish ourselves for the sacrifices we make. To understand the mind of God and how Providence works in our lives and why our harvests don’t look the same is almost impossible. And I know we should not linger there because we bring our offerings before God with a thankful heart. And so as you have revealed, his word teaches us in 1 Peter 5:10 , when His Holiness speaks, we are consoled and return to prepare the next sacrifice, each to his own, God above all, strengthening and laying new foundations.

    That is a super handsome picture of you. Thank you for sharing. It’s so good to read you again.
    Blessings and have a wonderful day.
