Hosea 10:12 
Sow righteousness for yourselves, reap the fruit of unfailing love, and break up your unplowed ground; for it is time to seek the Lord, until he comes and showers his righteousness on you.

Sow righteousness,
reap love.
It’s time to till the ready earth,
it’s time to dig in with GOD,
Until he arrives
with righteousness ripe for harvest.
(The Message)

It’s always time to do the right thing. It is always time to know and experience God. 

The benefits of making the right choices and taking the right lead measures are not always immediately apparent. Time has a way of revealing the blessings of simple faith, loving obedience, and patient waiting. 

A coaching question Val Hastings of Coaching 4 Today’s Leaders likes is, “What do you want? What do you really, really want?” The best of our many desires are worth the wait. Many of those most deeply-held desires require more than one step. They often take a long time to come to pass. Like any project, more than a To-Do list is required. Big dreams and bold hopes take daily deposits of focused effort.

If you are not now harvesting hopes and dreams, keep at the steady work of tilling, planting, watering, weeding, and tending. Fruit takes time. It does not arrive or ripen by desire alone. 

Where are you in the process of becoming? 

What are you doing today to prepare you for the harvest someday?

What do you need to do now to draw one step closer to the kind of production honoring to God and blessing to others?

Dig in with God in full confidence of a bumper crop.

I will work and I will wait for the good gifts of God’s timing.

Our Father, what are my best lead measures today? What are my best next steps? What preparation is required from me now for what you want for me next? Amen.
