Faith, Focus, and Follow-Through

Jesus said, "Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for.  Keep on seeking, and you will find.  Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks, receives.  Everyone who seeks finds.  And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened."  Matthew 7:7-8

Jesus tells us to persist in pursuing God.  People often give up after a few halfhearted efforts and conclude that God cannot be found.  But knowing God takes faith, focus, and follow-through, and Jesus assures us that we will be rewarded.  Don't give up in your efforts to seek God.  Continue to ask him for more knowledge, patience, wisdom, love, and understanding.  He will give them to you.
(This is a prayer that I need to ask every day.  My patience runs out most days and I honestly forget to turn to God and ask Him for help.  Why I let the little things get to me; I do not know.  It is easy to put our Lord off to the side, but I do know that when I do call on Him, He helps in every way!  I feel at ease.  I feel peace.  I do feel purpose.  I know He is there with me.)

Our Broccoli.  I've never grown broccoli.  My friend Sarah gave some seeds to us and I thought I would try!  They are so cute.

Here are our peas.  I think they are a beautiful a plant.

Here is a view of our new 8'x8' tomato garden!  I am hoping to plant 18 more tomato plants soon!

Our gorgeous strawberries!  Last year we had our first batch!  I am praying for lots more this year.

My kids muddy feet!  They were having a great time painting themselves in mud.  I wasn't too sure what to think about this.  However, they were happy and my oldest just said, "hey, were kids". 

Make me walk along the path of your commands, for that is where my happiness is found.  Psalm 119:35
