Having faith to sow a seed....

Good morning all-

For the last couple of months I have had a Compassion International flyer in my bag.  I was going to send it off the minute I got back from Beth Moore but it sat in my bag.  I have also wanted to donate to the Wounded Warriors project but I didn't know if the money truly went to those veterans that had served our country so strongly.

I have a big heart and sometimes that has impacted my judgment so I think I've become a little jaded when I really should have just prayed and God would give me the answer I needed.  Both things have been on my mind so much that every time I eat or see any commercial concerning a child I think of starving children everywhere.  And when I pass by someone serving in the military or see the commercial on TV it makes me pause.

But as I reached for my coffee this morning and remembered the dinner I ate last night, I realized I had to find that card in my bag.  I made a commitment that I need to fulfill.  It's to a little boy, far away from America.  It's my duty to remember the poor, the starving, the wounded and the lost.

I'm not telling you what to do.  I don't know your situation but I do know our God.  The money we are provided is for His kingdom.  If I don't sow a seed He's given me, how is His kingdom supposed to grow?  Nothing grows if it's stored inside.  It must be planted deep within the soil, fed water and fertilizer and then with enough good sun, it will grow.

I'm praying that this very small gift will help someone have what is plentiful here and so scarce in other parts of the world.  Please join me in asking God to feed nations and to give care to those that have fought for our security and for the security of nations.

For a seed sown in love surely will grow, are you willing to sow today?

2 Corinthians 9:10 Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread ...
Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase
your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. ...
