Inspiration From Robert Louis Stevenson

August 16, 2012

Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                          – Robert Louis Stevenson –

I have always loved the words of Stevenson.  What most inspires me is that, like Paul’s letters, this is a man who expresses a message of joy and hope while facing challenges . . . painful challenges.  Paul’s imprisonment and beatings received at the hands of his captors and Stevenson’s lifelong health challenges.  Such uplifting, bright, and joy filled words shining from the lips and pen of a man often confined to his bed. 

There are many in our midst in this cyber world who face physical, emotional, provisional challenges and more yet in the blog world we don’t see faces, only written words.  Their words touch our hearts, heal us, and encourage us to go on.  They sow His seeds against such adversity.  How blessed we are to be a part of this body!  How we are fed by the harvest!
