a tidbit of encouragement

"She perceives that her merchandise is profitable." (Proverbs 31:18a)

 I've been overwhelmed these last few days, with business plans and hopes and dreams and doubts. Not sure if this farm will succeed. Not sure if we're on the right track. Not sure what our 'Veggie Share' flyer should look like. Not sure if food will grow. Not sure if anyone will buy the food that advance. Then, I remember that it's not us who bring life. It's not us who makes the rain or causes the plants to bring forth fruit. It's not us who we are depending on...
   Lacking confidence, I turn to The Word. There I am reminded. There I can trust.
I know that this great big dream of ours isn't only ours. It's God who brings the growth.
It's God who brings the rain. It's God who brings the customers for our food... in advance. It's God who directs our steps. It's God who gives us the desires of our hearts. It's God who brings life. It's God who reminds me...
