I begin my day by reading devotions written by bloggers, authors, speakers, and saints who now stand in the presence of the Lord. Their words encourage, uplift, leave me points to ponder and verses to cherish.
Words spread across the continents through books, magazines, and newspapers. Approximately 153 million blogs exist on the internet. I sit here at my computer and wish I could blog like Ann Voskamp, speak like Beth Moore, write deep theology like C.S. Lewis, and sing like… well…anyone who can actually sing.
However, I know I’m me. And the cool thing is, God doesn’t make clones. We don’t have to be like anyone else. God made me to be me, and you to be you. Your style of delivery, how you speak and how you write, will be different from others. Your situation and circumstances bring unique perspectives.
We all scatter word seeds. Every word spoken, every letter written for God’s glory, is tailor made for delivery and tailor made for the receiver.
So my seed-sowing friends, keep feeding on God’s Word, so you may keep scattering worthy seeds.
“Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harest of your righteousness” (2 Corinthians 9:10 NIV).
