I am a plant person these days. I love to help nurture plants from seed to sprout to mature flowering plant. The truth is a seed doesn’t look like much but it is a miracle waiting to happen. The products of seeds feed us, shelter us, provide us with building materials, clean our air, surround us with beauty and do so much more.
I often talk of telling the stories of our faith as planting seeds. In the case of your faith story, you plant the seed and walk away, rarely, if ever, knowing the impact you might have on those who hear or read it. Our web site spiritualjourneystoday.org is one of the seeds that my family and I have planted. I am in the process of making some changes to it because it hasn’t exactly grown into a place where hordes of other people are storming the doors to tell their stories.
That had been my vision for the site.
As I went in to start on some of the changes, the statistics graph on the right side of the page caught my eye. The number of people looking at the site was up as it usually is on the day or two after a new blog entry. I glanced through the stats and noticed that yesterday, people from three countries (USA, Guatemala, Brasil) had viewed the new post.
That prompted me to remember that the stats can also be done for an entire year. I opened the page to view the stats and to my amazement discovered that people from 64 different countries had viewed the site this year. God is great! Imagine that, people from every continent but Antarctica had visited the site! As always, God finds miraculous ways to spread the word of his love and goodness that go far beyond our visions and dreams!
May you feel and recognize God moving in your life today and always!
And plant some seeds today…
Tell someone about the times when you saw God working in your life!
