Sunday's Thought

1 Corinthians 15:36 - ...Every time you plant seed, you sow something that does not come to life unless it dies first.

This passage made me think of disappointments in my life. How many dreams and plans have I had that have not come to fruition?
-First, I have to consider the seed I am sowing. Is it the type of seed God wanted in my life in
the first place?
-Second, if it was, and the plan or dream hasn't come forth yet, according to this scripture, it has
to die, anyway. What does this exactly mean? I don't really know, but it obviously means it
probably won't fall easily in my lap. Dieing doesn't sound like a lot of fun to me. It sounds like
self sacrifice, and a willingness to say, "Not my will, but Your will."
-Third, then, that means trust. Do I trust God with my dreams? I say I want His will in my life,
so am I willing to let him mold these dreams as He sees fit, or am I insisting on my own way.
Well, God is going to win, so if I'm not willing to yield, that means disappointment.
-Fourth, I can be assured of victory, if I've done the first three steps. However, it will be in
God's timing, not mine. Verse 57 says - Thanks be to God, Who gives us the victory through
our Lord Jesus Christ. I have to stand on this verse in faith, regardless of what circumstances
show. God is true and trustworthy.

In otherwords, one day my God given dreams will come to pass!!

His plans and purposes are so much bigger than ours.

Good thoughts my friend. Oh to let go and let God. I've often pondered that statement, but in essence it means letting Him have control :) It's letting go of self, so hard for me, I like to be in control...

Much love,
