You Reap What You Sow

We’ve all worked with that person, the one that always looks over everyone else’s shoulders, their concerned about others’ work and they’re always talking behind your back. They’re not happy with their life and chose to make the workplace their playground.

As an outsider looking in, I would never have dreamed that this one particular coworker would be this way; however, in time I learned. It started just a few months into working with this person, they would make comments about others in the workplace. I’m not one to talk poorly about another person as I don’t walk in their shoes. I was taken back by the comments but considered that possibly something was going on in their personal life affecting their emotions and judgement.

It wasn’t long before I figured out that this person isn’t happy with their life and will turn on others without reason. I was shocked to learn how my coworker had been speaking about me behind my back; no different than what they had been saying about others. It’s disappointing, and I shouldn’t have been surprised as we all know that people that have nothing good to say about others will target everyone and anyone.

I truly believe that a person who is good to others and works hard no matter what their profession will when the time is right enjoy the fruits of their labors. Those, like my coworker that chooses to spend their time being miserable will never enjoy the rewards.

Galatians 6:7-8: Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.

Incomplete Puzzle

I’ve been asked several times since my last post what I’ll share. The next question I heard was why haven’t I shared. There isn’t an answer as to why I haven’t shared; but, I haven’t felt the peace and comfort that comes with writing. With all of the daily commitments, I’ve found myself observing, listening, reading, and just taking everything in.

It’s been a quiet time… the weather has changed, I’m battling a cold, busy at work, busy at home, financial stress with the upcoming holidays, no different from anyone else. What’s missing though is the peace I feel with His Word. I don’t have an answer as to why I haven’t spent time reading His Word. It’s a part of my routine, but somehow that piece of the puzzle is missing.

I was in church Sunday, I heard the sermon, but yet I didn’t listen to what was being said. Too much noise in my mind, I wasn’t open to what was being said, and why not? I enjoy church and look forward to the weekly sermons. I always learn something and walk away feeling refreshed, ready to tackle another full week of activities.

As my morning routine began I felt as if the noise had subsided, I realized that my spiritual vision had faltered. He doesn’t send me daily reminders to spend time with Him, it’s something that  I normally do as part of my day.

I found myself skimming through 1 Samuel this morning, and am  processing the literal concept 1 Samuel 15:34-16:21. It’s a good feeling as I work to complete the puzzle.
