{As you Sow you Shall Reap}

It is so easy to blame everyone else for the challenges, struggles, and failures we may have to face. Difficulties normally occur when there is a need for personal change. That need for personal change should always be for the better.

The Word of God tells us in Galatians 6:7 “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap”. In other words we reap exactly what we sow. If we decide to plant bad seeds that is EXACTLY what we will get in return. We are quick to pray to the Lord when things are going wrong in our lives. Ever wonder what might happen if we sowed prayer into our lives on a regular basis? We will be blessed with a prayer-filled life!

A prayer-filled life allows us to take on struggles without losing our faith or becoming weary in our walk with Christ. When we are suited up with the whole armor of God which is the breastplate of righteousness, the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the spirit; praying always with a humble heart then we will always be ready! For the Word of God tells us in 1 Peter 5:8 “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walk about, seeking whom he may devour”. Meaning the enemy is always lurking behind the corner waiting for us to slip up. The proper armor will protect us and allow us to overcome all the fiery darts from the enemy stripping away any chance of victory he may have when it is time for battle.

There is absolutely no way for us to walk the path that our Heavenly Father purposely ordained for us without sowing the necessary time, prayer, tithes, offerings, and energy into the Lord. It takes more than being a Sunday going church person or attending a bible study here and there. We cannot live outrageous crazy lifestyles Monday through Saturday (and you could even add Sunday evenings to the mix if you like) and expect for God to pour down blessing after blessing when we do not bother to take the proper time to feed our spirits and set ourselves up to receive those blessings. It is not okay to lack kindness, compassion, and forgiveness. It is not okay for us to walk around with hardend hearts. It is not okay to compromise the right we know to be true for what other’s may see as good or okay.

Planting good seeds mean we give love to those in need. Planting good seeds mean we treat others better than we wish to be treated. Planting good seeds mean we give more than we take. Planting good seeds mean we lend a helping hand where needed. Planting good seeds mean we take steps daily to be better than we were yesterday. In order to take those steps we must plant the right seeds in our mind, bodies, and spirits. It is a lifestyle; the type of lifestyle that is purposeful and fulfilling. The type of lifestyle that God desires for us to have. In order to obtain the blessings that are rightfully ours we must take the proper steps to ensure we are planting the right seeds in our body, mind, and spirit. For we reap exactly what we sow.

{Personal Message from J_LaQueenia}

I honestly would not know where to start if I desired to be a “religious” person. I am no bible scholar by any means. However, I am spiritual and take pride in the personal relationship I have with my Heavenly Father. I am a firm believer in we have to constantly feed our spirits with the right things in order to remain spiritually fit. God’s desire for us is to live a well balanced life during our time here on earth. He does not care if we are walking bibles. Maya Angelou once said that a person may forget what you said but they will never forget how you made them feel. God’s desire for those of us who have been blessed to see the light is that we let it shine brightly enough for those who have not. Our lifestyle, attitude, and actions are the closet that some may ever get to a bible, so it is imperative that we ensure we give them the right impression and plant the right seed(s) for them to reference.
