Have You Seen? {October 25th, 2020}

Last Week’s Theme: Cultivate

On Soil and Seeds by Beth Barthelemy—”Maybe this year is one of rooting out the sin and welcoming the good in our hearts, a hard kind of work that cannot be done well in the midst of a busy life without much white space.”

Cracked Clay Pots {Book Club} by Sarah Hilkemann—”Humility helps prepare our hearts for the conversations about brokenness in our ethnic groups or background.”

The Work of the Trowel by Maria Mullet—”Being transplanted hurts. In fact, it kinda feels like that trowel might want to see the end of you. But actually, transplanting is done by the careful hands of a gardener who is working toward a picture of a beautiful garden.”

He Is God and I am Not by Joy Smalley—”I’m glad to be the soil and not the gardener or the clay and not the potter because God is so good at what he does. He is utterly competent.”

And Now For Next Week

The theme is…

We all long to see growth, but sometimes we rush right past the invitation to allow the Father to do the needed deep, internal work in our hearts.

But His heart is for bountiful fruit, an abundant harvest. Can we trust Him for that?

In whatever part of your life or ministry you desire harvest to come, may you cling tightly to the hope that the good work started there will be carried on to completion by the Lord of the Harvest.

What is the harvest you are trusting Him for this week? Share with us in the blog post comments and on social media with the hashtag #VelvetAshesHarvest.
