you never know


Isn't it a mystery, how things turn out in our lives, and why and how it all happens?

Maybe you can recall scenarios that led you to destinations that you never planned. A friendship that blossomed out of a small conversation.  A job that led you to greater opportunities. 

I was in ministry for some time, and it never ceased to amaze me what individuals blossomed into becoming essential leaders and would eventually play a vital part in the church. Some who I thought were uninterested, or not passionate enough, or preoccupied with other details of life. Yet despite my own preconceived ideas, they surpassed them all. 

I certainly love this scripture:

"Go to work in the morning and stick to it until evening without watching the clock. You never know from moment to moment how your work will turn out in the end." The Message Bible

"Keep on sowing your seed, for you never know which will grow -- perhaps it all will." The Living Translation

It prompts a sense of adventure, certainly keeping me on my toes... Mmmm, I wonder what's to come of this, if anything at all.

The thought behind this scripture is that where ever you are, and whatever you are doing, keep on giving and keep on moving. Keep giving your all in your life. The passions that are inside, keep pursuing them. Keep welcoming people into your life. Keep investing into relationships. Keep doing those small acts of kindness, keep serving, keep loving, keep forgiving those around you. The act of sowing may look different to us all, but whatever God has put in front of you, don't give up on it, just stick to it....

You never know what may come...
