It is my opinion that one will never fully fulfill their destiny without first sowing into others. Over the years, I’ve recognized the importance and value of sowing seeds. Having a servant attitude in life will bless you more abundantly than simply living selfishly. Someone, somewhere is currently experiencing this game called life and they are waiting on you to coach them up! Your life experiences are vital for your growth and the wisdom gained from these experiences will help expand your mentees potential. You must give up pieces of yourself in the process.
While I am no longer in the classroom, I purposely sow seeds into those students in need. My life could have been totally different if it weren’t for some of my teachers sowing into me. The things I plant are directly connected to my purpose. In the planting process not only am I helping others, I am learning more about myself. I am consistently developing into the woman that I am destined to be. Right now, I am going through what many may deem as a trying time. Instead of focusing on the negatives or wallowing in pity, I am choosing to steadily push purpose. I can’t solve all of my problems right now, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t help someone else. Using what you’ve been through can help others get through it, too.
Everyone is waiting on their harvest, but nothing manifests if you don’t effectively minister to others. Know that at the end of the day your service is greater than your situation. When in need, sow a seed.
