Pardon me

Whoever watches the wind will not plant; whoever looks at the clouds will not reap. As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother’s womb, so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things. Sow your seed in the morning, and at evening let not your hands be idle, for you do not know which will succeed, whether this or that, or whether both will do equally well. Ecclesiastes 11: 4-6

Dreamers, that’s the first word that came to mind when I read portions of this scripture. People who sit watching the wind, watching the clouds. As a child we would lie on the ground and look up at the sky; discussing the various shapes of the clouds. Sometimes we saw a lion, other times it was a space ship. For children and adults this is a very creative exercise, it expands our imagination. Our imagination is what allows us to dream up beautiful ideas that if put into action can become something that changes our lives and the lives of others. However our imagination stores our potential, without the action it speaks of in the latter part of the scripture we are just dreamers. Sitting on a gold mine, but not thrusting forward and reaping the benefits of our brilliance.

Lord knows I never understand God’s path for me but I pray that I am traveling along that path and not some makeshift road that I have created for myself. One of my biggest flaws is I try to make sense of things, I try to understand God’s plan to a tee and that is information that I am not privy to as of yet. So I look back to the scripture and gain an understanding that I do not know what will work. I have watched the wind, and looked at the clouds; creating in myself a creative being. Now it’s time that I sow seeds of success into my life, I am not sure which seed will grow but if I continue to plant, some of them will be successful. After planting your idea, you must nurture it. Plants do not grow without proper care and neither will your dreams and goals if you do not nurture them. Today we are nurturing our creative energy and turning our potential into kinetic energy, lets move! Peace and Grace be unto you.

Knowledge is like a garden: if it is not cultivated, it cannot be harvested.
