Stay Busy!

I came across these verses a couple of days ago during my lunchbreak at work ...

"If you wait for perfect conditions, you will never get anything done. Be sure to stay busy and plant a variety of crops, for you never know which will grow - perhaps they all will." Ecclesiastes 11:4, 6.

There are a lot of references in the Bible to sowing, planting and reaping. I think that sometimes as Christians we mistake the "waiting on God" thing to mean not to do anything unless there is a clear sign. However there is a clear sign that we should be sowing ... and often! To find a job, partner, end to conflict, ministry takes a lot of sowing into. Even things like reconciliation needs to be planted, watered ect. I like what it says in that verse, "Stay busy." Something thats hard to do when our heart is involved or things are looking impossible.

Just felt like sharing that verse with you all. Have a blessed day!
