Reaping and Sowing
A man reaps what he sows.
If you are sowing a life that never slows down, you will reap shallow relationships with your children. If you are spending the time with your children, you will reap the benefit of knowing each child. As a mom, the sooner you realize you cannot do it all, the sooner you will relax and release the huge burden so many moms carry.
Begin to develop the mindset of sowing and reaping. If you are sowing a nonstop pace, don’t be surprised when your children grow up and don’t have time for you. You reap what you sow. If you don’t teach the value of slowing down and resting, then your children will not grow up realizing rest is an important part of life.
We get so busy, we forget that there are consequences to our actions. Take some time today to ask God to show you the areas of your life in which you need to slow down. Listen to him and take heart; today is a good day to start a new healthy habit of slowing down.
Father, open my eyes to what you see in my life and give me the courage to act on what you show me. If you urge me to let go of travel ball, give me the courage to release that sport. If you call me to get back into church, give me the desire to make that happen on Sunday. I want to sow good things for my family and children. I want to reap a beautiful harvest. I can only do that through your direction and strength. Amen
