Sowing Seed in the Midst of Tears...

"God will give us victory, but sometimes He will require every ounce of energy and cooperation we have in the process."

"Blessed, merciful God, Your Word promises that those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy. If I go out weeping, carrying seed to sow, I will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with me. (Psalm 126:5-6) Help me to see that the promise is not made to those who simply have tears but to those who are willing to sow seed in the midst of their tears. Your Word tells us in Luke 8:11 that the seed is the Word. If I'm willing to keep believing and sowing Your Word, even when I am desperately hurting, You will bring me forth from the difficult season with songs of joy. Because of Your faithfulness, with joy I will draw water from the wells of salvation." (Isaiah 12:3) ~ Beth Moore in Praying God's Word Day By Day, October 18.
