Now this is what the Lord Almighty says: “Give careful thought to your ways. You have planted much, but harvested little. You eat, but never have enough. You drink, but never have your fill. You put on clothes, but are not warm. You earn wages, only to put them in a purse with holes in it.”
We get out of life what we invest in it. We get out of life the deposited emotions and perceptions we foresee. If we live in doubt we receive the negative investment we made. If we live with feelings and perceptions of lack, we face days of minimalism. If we give partial effort, we live in mediocrity.
Let’s go for it and live our lives with purpose as God intends!
Father, I pray for satisfaction in the seeds that I sow. If I only give half effort then I should be satisfied with those results.
Silence me Father when I begin to whine or complain about things not going right in my life, about my overdue bills, mounting expenses, incessant calls from debt collectors, my body that is carrying around excess weight, a house that’s not a home, a car with a title I don’t own and possess, or my inability to travel at my leisure. For if I never do what I’m supposed to do in life I will never get out of it what I truly desire.
I want to thrive not just survive, abundance not lack. I can only do these things through and with You Father, and the example set by Your son Jesus Christ. In his name I pray to You. Amen.
