5 minutes to 2pm

No one plants two seeds to get one tree, instead you plant one seed to get a tree. When you plant the seed you do not plant it when you want to harvest it but you plant it well before the harvest. We make plans all the time about what we want to achieve at certain times only to discover that we actually achieve those plans years later. Someone may say they want to buy a house in 2010 but only buys it five years later. Another person may say I want to go outside at five minutes to 2 pm yet they only leave at 2 pm because they started preparing to leave at 5 mins to 2, all because they neglected the preparation side of planning. We plan the outcome but we never plan the preparation yet it is the opposite. The outcome belongs to God; ours is to plan, prepare, execute and hope for the best that our actions work out. We neglect the preparation in our plans and we concetrate on the outcome and then wonder why we never get things we want at the time we planned to receive. Once a seed is planted it needs nourishing and not replanting. We pray for something and instead of tending to the seed of prayer we try to plant the prayers over and over again. Our prayers must reflect the difference between tendering to a seed and planting a seed.When you plant a tree you may not see the tree as yet but because you believe that it is there you water the seed, provide fertiliser, protect the sorrounding from weeds; all this because you believe the tree is there and will soon sprout. You do not plant and keep putting a seed on top of that seed. Our plans must reflect the difference between the investment and the expansion of the investment. Most people do not make it in life because they die investing never realising the benefits as they did not know how much seed they must plant so they keep on planting the same seed over and over again disturbing the process of germination and never concetrating on the tending to the seed so that It grows. Now that 2010 has arrived what are you doing? Are you planting a seed, planting on top of that seed, are you fertilising, are you watering and digging around the soil? Are you leaving at 5 mins to 2pm or at 2pm. Pro 16:9 A man’s heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps. Pro 19:21 There are many purposes in a man’s heart, but the counsel of Jehovah shall stand. Luk 14:28 For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?
