This week's Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge was picked by none other than...ME. The verse I chose was Galatians 6:9 "Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up." (NIV) and the challenge is to make a Thanksgiving card or card of thankfulness.
This verse reminds me that we are to do good and though it might not feel as though we're being "rewarded" or that anyone really carest that we're doing right, God sees and God cares and we WILL be blessed if we do not give up. We have to complete that job God gave us. If a farmer only worked half his field when he felt like it, would there be much to harvest? I would think not. A farmer has many challenges that he faces while working his crops. The weather, bugs, animals, the soil, broken equipment, etc. yet, he does what he has to so that his crops can grow and at harvest time, if he does as he should, he will reap a very blessed harvest. That is how God wants us to be, determined to do the right thing no matter what, and he's promised to bless us.
I chose a Thanksgiving card because this week in the US we will celebrate our Thanksgiving Day. If you're not in the US, please still join us by making a card of thankfulness. There's always a reason to give thanks to our Lord for how wonderful He is to us!
