I gave it up…can’t go back there no more, I gave it up ain’t goin’ back there no more…I won’t turn back!
Sowing and repeaping as we all know has it’s own timing. Sometimes, I can’t even lie, I wish that I knew the timing or even knew how to speed up the process. Like the other day I was about 20 minutes into a run and sooooo wished the reaping would just hurry up and come. But at that point I had to hunker down and realize that this was in fact my sowing.
It’s a wild thought to realize that where ever your mind is focused, that’s where you tend to sow. If its focused on the flesh (selfish satisfactions), you sow to reap from there, if it’s Spirit (Christ would be pleased with me because of this), you sow and reap from there. Coincidentally, we are blinded by sowing in the flesh because it’s an instant gratification but we think it will be a long term benefit. That’s why the scripture says “Do not be decieved…” (Galatians 6:7-9).
Today, about 20 minutes into the workout, last weeks run reaped! I became supercharged and it was me against every excuse I ever used…i was determined. I won’t turn back. I’ve come this far, to give up would just be flat out stupid. OUCH! My shoulders are screamin, my butt hurts, my pinky toe can feel the agony, I mean, benefit of all this sowing and reaping. So ima just keep movin’…
“for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” Gal 6:7-9
So here’s my theme song for today! Enjoy, know that whatever you sow…well you know (wink wink to Ericka Reed for that status update) love you!!!!
