Delayed Gratification!

Those too lazy to plough in the right season will have no food at the harvest.

Proverbs 20:4 NLT

The life you are enjoying, or otherwise right now, is not so much the result of your current circumstances, as it is the product of seeds you have sown in your past.

Though this is often a difficult reality check, and may indeed carry some disclaimers, it nonetheless can definitely breathe fresh hope into your future.

The exceptions to this rule may include certain disasters & the unforeseen actions by third parties……. yet our responses to any of these are very much still within our control.

In brief,

if you would like your tomorrow to look different, change what you are sowing today.

If your financial world is not where you’d like it to be, change it up a gear in what you earn, invest & give.

If your key relationships are not bringing you the kind of fulfilment you envisage, then be more friendly, more sharing & maybe more discerning about who you build into your world.

If your career is somehow lacking momentum, invest in some education, a coach or a mentor to help get things moving.

Many that I’ve spoken to over the past couple of decades attest to this, that even your spiritual life can carry the baggage of past neglect. If you want your spiritual journey to get moving then do something about it.

–   Get  back to your bible

–    Re engage relationally with the God in heaven who loves you

–    Reconnect with a vibrant community of faith
