Just Keep Sowing

     We all love the character, Dory, from Finding Nemo whose mantra "Just keep swimming, just keep swimming...." has stuck in our heads ever since the movie was released. 

     I, along with countless Christians, have built my life as a disciple of Christ and to prayer. Prayer is as natural to me as breathing. The Bible says that "what is sown in tears will be reaped with joy." When I am in conversation with a friend who is crushed in her spirit over agonizing prayers I tell her the same thing I tell myself. Just keep sowing those prayers, even through tears...you will reap joy! That is a promise from God! Sometimes it takes weeks, months, even years to see the fruit of our fallen knees, but we will rejoice again. A sweet season will one day come.  

   How did the little fish, Dory, find Nemo?  She found him by...."Just keep swimming, just keep swimming!"

    My friend, I am a wife, and a mother living out my days much like you. I have sown tears that have reaped with joy. Today is a new day. I am back in the sowing season again. I have experienced brokenness in my heart that will one day mend because He promises that my heart will once again rejoice. Whatever you are crying through today, stay the course and refuse to allow Satan to steal your joy and your hope.

   Just keep sowing...just keep sowing...just keep sowing.
