Faith · Perseverance · Temptation · Weary

does it matter…?

The thought flashed through my mind today…
Does it matter…?
The it of Bible study writing…
blogging on two blogs…
prepping for prayer…

And really… I know what brought on the thought…
weariness…
driving home from the shop…
but my day not yet done…

When the work is all unseen…
really nothing to show for it…
nothing tangible… visible…
except words on paper…
when the world is all about work that earns…
work that accomplishes something visible…
sometimes… it’s hard… to think you’re really doing anything…
when it comes to things of the Spirit…

But just as quickly as the question popped in my mind…
Jesus’s story of the sower answered my question…

“A sower went out to sow his seed. And as he sowed, some fell along the path
and was trampled underfoot, and the birds of the air devoured it. And some
fell on the rock, and as it grew up, it withered away, because it had no moisture.
And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up with it and choked it.
And some fell into good soil and grew and yielded a hundred fold.”
Luke 8:4-8 ESV
If you’re familiar with this story Jesus told…
you know He reveals to His disciples…
The seed is the Word of God

So He said to me…
You’re sowing seed…

Sowing seeds of faith…

not knowing where they land…
or if they’ll grow…
is something only God sees…
for now…
And the enemy… prompts the question…
Does it matter…?
and my flesh pipes in…
I don’t know…? does it…?

But the Spirit says…
And let us not grow weary in doing good, for in due season we will reap,
if we do not give up.
Galatians 6:9 ESV
Thus the nature of faith…
the assurance of things hoped for…
the conviction of things unseen…
