Seeds & Raindrops

When you think back on this past year, what comes to mind?

I have opened my curtains many mornings this past year, thinking on the verse, “Pray continually, being watchful in it with thanksgiving,” (Colossians 4:2). I want to keep choosing a heart posture of watching to see God at work! But as 2019 ends, I don’t yet see the answer to prayer in this area of need, and this year ends without closure.

What have you been praying? In what area of your life is this year coming to a close without answers?

God Works Over Time (Be Patient!)

I have been thinking about patience and perseverance, with the fall crops being harvested and as verse from James 5 keeps coming to mind.
