Sowing in Sorrow
Sowing in The Spirit means we most certainly will endure godly sorrow...but take comfort, for our tears will yield an everlasting harvest of joy, peace and eternal life.
He who goes to and fro weeping, carrying his bag of seed, Shall indeed come again with a shout of joy, bringing his sheaves with him.
"With weeping they will come, And by supplication I will lead them; I will make them walk by streams of waters, On a straight path in which they will not stumble; For I am a father to Israel, And Ephraim is My firstborn.
Let us not grow weary in well doing, for in due time we will reap a harvest, if we do not give up.
2 Corinthians 4:17
For our light and temporary affliction is producing for us an eternal glory that far outweighs our troubles.
Truly, truly, I tell you, you will weep and wail while the world rejoices. You will grieve, but your grief will turn to joy.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
For the Lamb in the center of the throne will be their shepherd. He will lead them to fountains of living water, and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.
