Not every day can be a harvest

Not every day can be a harvest

WHEAT & HONEY CO.

We’re drawn to the idea of productivity. 

In the midst of our busy lives, we set out to tackle our to-do lists and keep up with our calendars, hoping to feel that sweet sense of accomplishment at the end of the day. 

 

We want every day to be visibly fruitful.  

 

We expect every day to be abundant and when it’s not, we often feel guilt, shame, or defeat.

 

Yet, if we look at nature, however, we discover a profound and encouraging truth. Actual harvest seasons are fleeting and only appear in brief seasons.

 

We learn that there are many seemingly “unproductive” and quiet days where change and growth are happening even though we don’t quite see them. 

 

Roots are growing. 

 

Water and light are bringing forth life. 

 

There is stillness. 

 

There is quiet growth.

 

And…

 

Lastly, and almost suddenly, the fruit appears.

 

So today, take this simple reminder drawn from nature. 

 

Let daily faithfulness be the productivity you seek, trusting and resting in Him today. 

 

Be reminded that you have nothing to prove. 

 

Release the burden of your striving and give today only what it needs. 

 

The harvest will unfold in due time.


“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28

 

Prayer: Lord, you equip us with everything we need to produce every good work you’ve called us to. Forgive us when we create anxious minds and restless lives trying to muster up daily proof of our worthiness. Rid us of our striving. Thank you, Lord, that neither every day or every season can produce a harvest. Help us to rest in that truth. Return our hearts and minds to you. Give us wisdom to know what we need to nourish our souls today. We commit this day and the season ahead to you.
