Sow it’s 2014

I’ve been thinking a lot about 2014.  I don’t really love resolutions, but this year I really think I need some.  As I’ve been looking back over the last two years, I’ve realized that those were years of reaping for me.  They were years of celebration, of fruits of my labor, of “it’s finally happening”.  I got my first full time job.  I graduated from college.  I married the girl I’ve been dreaming about.  We bought a house.

These major changes did not happen because of fate or chance;  they happened because I worked towards them with patience and diligence.  I went to school for 5 1/2 years.  I was patient and kind waiting for Megan to see that I am the man she can’t live without ;).  I had to sow something to one day reap the benefits.  It is occurring to me now that it is time to sow again.  It is time for hard work.  It is time to fast not feast.

As I look at 2014, I think of this song.  I want to sow these words into my life.  I want the chorus and bridge to wash over me as I work the fields of my heart and my life.  In my marriage. In my career.  In my friendships.  I want these words to fall like rain on the seed that will grow and one day nourish me.


So I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine


Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior
