A Planting of Faith Seeds for the Glory of the LORD
Keep on Keeping on…

“…But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit. So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone—especially to those in the family of faith.” (Galatians 6:8–10, NLT)

“At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing IF WE DON’T GIVE UP.” I don’t know about you but to me that sentence is bittersweet because it not only encourages me to “keep on keeping on” but it also establishes the importance of trust. My understanding of trust is very simple to trust is the act of “keeping on” whenever everything else is commanding you to quit.

I suspect you have firsthand knowledge/experience that trusting takes (at times) a lot of courage. But if you’re like me there are times when in the “thick” of long, tiresome, and life draining experience I need a gentle reminder that God has not only pre-equipped me for what lies yet ahead but also what awaits me when the experience becomes a faith growing memory. “But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control...” (Galatians 5:22–23, NLT)

Are you in the “thick” of a long, tiresome, and life draining experience and quitting is becoming easier than picking up a foot and taking another step? I don’t know how many more steps you’ll need to take before the experience becomes a faith growing memory but I can with 100% confidence tell you. “As you trust in the LORD you will find new strength. You will soar high on wings like eagles. You will run and not grow weary. You will walk and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:31, NLT, adapted) It’s working for me!

Believe it! Experience it!

Grace and PEACE!
