Regardless of whether or not we believe in a God or Creator, farmers and homesteaders understand the concept of faith and hope. We plant seeds, in hope that they will grow and give us a return. We raise animals with faith that our flocks or herds will reproduce and expand. We also understand another element of faith: that without some form of action, we won’t see results! We understand there is a time to act, but we also know there is a time to be still. If we are constantly digging up seeds to see if they are growing, they won’t!
As a follower of Jesus, I love this life, surrounded by concepts and principles that give me a better view into how my faith-life works. I share about those here.
I also share about the personal battles I come up against in daily life. Because I believe there is a God who cares about the happenings of this planet we call earth and particularly the people on it, you’ll also find my thoughts often wandering to His perspective on things. What is He attempting to teach me? What is His plan? Do I really trust that He cares and is present? Am I moving toward His ideas and desires, or am I so busy pursuing my own that I have no time for His? Its worth thinking on and sharing about!
