My name is Dwayne Peterkin. I was re-baptized April 2011 and since then I have been doing my best to obey the Lord Jesus Christ and do his will. In this sinful world IT IS NOT EASY to stand up for God. You'll be tested, friendships may fall by the wayside, old habits will fade away. I hope that as I share my Faith Walk, others are encouraged on theirs. I hope you join me on this journey.

Reaping what you sow…..

Hi Friends! I hope this post finds you well. Let me get right into it. It is said that where we are in life right now is a direct result of the seeds we’ve sown prior to this point.  This goes beyond what you normally hear about reaping what you sow –  the standpoint of “an eye for an eye.”

I take my Mom to a Support Group at our church called Grief Share . If you or anyone you know has lost a loved one, I highly recommend this 13 week program, it is extremely helpful.

A week or two ago they gave the example that one person reaped loneliness in her life because when friends had asked her months earlier to come over for dinner she said no, when they asked her to come over and watch a movie and she said no, when they asked her to go to the shopping mall with them she said no.  So here she is months later feeling lonely because the “No” seed she sowed with her friends eventually made them stop asking her out.

What seeds have you sown in the last year? The last six months? last week? Today? Do you want a better relationship with God? Do you want happiness? Do you want prosperity? What is it that your desire? Think about it and start sowing that good seed.

There are so many examples of the sowing of seeds in the bible…

Plant your seed in the morning and keep busy all afternoon, for you don’t know if profit will come from one activity or another–or maybe both. Ecclesiastes 11:6 NLT

“But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.”2 Corinthians 9:6 KJV

There is a story of the two farmers. There was a very dry season and both farmers prayed for rain for good crops that season.  The first farmer prayed for rain every day for weeks.  The second farmer prayed every day for weeks as well. After a couple months, there still was no rain. One day, the first farmer was looking in the fields and saw the second farmer planting his seed in the ground.   The first farmer was looking at the second farmer and was thinking to himself that the second farmer was wasting his time and his seed because he had been praying for months and there was no rain.  Needless to say, that night it rained and it rained hard!  God did answer both their prayers in His time, but only one’s seed to root and brought harvest because he had faith and was prepared to receive his blessing.

So my brothers and sisters, I encourage you to search yourselves and start sowing that good seed.  Pray without ceasing, and have faith that God will answer your prayers.  He may not answer your prayers in your time, but he will answer them in His time.  Prepare yourselves for your blessings and sow your good seed!

Until later, I’m just tryingtobeamanofgod!

Blessings,

Dwayne

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in your sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer. Psalm 19:14 KJV

I love the way Jesus teaches about reaping and sowing. It is what I have built my blogs upon. One laborer may sow…another may reap. It doesn’t matter who does what…the end result is for the glory of God and His kingdom!! There is so much to be done and so little time. My prayers are with you. Have a blessed day!
