the fresh smell of the air,
the warmth of the bright sun,
seeing the grass (even though it's brown),
a few birds singing...
Sometimes the HINT of something good gives us strength to face the day. And, lest we forget the origin of all blessings... all joys... Is it due to our hard work or our efforts?
"Neither he who plants is anything,
nor he who waters,
but God who gives the increase."
Another translation says,
"It's not important who does the planting, or who does the watering. What's important is that God makes the seed grow." NLT
We can play a part in God's plans. We need to play a part in His plans, as He directs. What we must recognize is that the value of OUR help comes from being used by God to bring His plans about.
