Someone once asked me how in the world I had time to make things from scratch, cloth diaper, homeschool, keep chickens and a garden, ect. While I was a tad flattered, I was also a bit surprised. Maybe I come off as though I have it "all together", but I don't! The Lord is the one who sustains me and keeps me grounded. He is the one who makes ALL THINGS possible, not my own strength. I give all glory to Him to has given me hands to work with, a brain to think with, a family who supports me and a loving, patient husband who shares my passions.
"I can do everything through Him who gives me strength." Philippians 4:13
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God." Philippians 4:6
"Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart." Psalm 37:4
Second step...Research. If you're really feeling God's calling to start saving money through gardening, do your research! Don't expect to throw some seeds into your front yard and have a beautiful fall garden. Not gonna happen. I've been gardening since I was small (alongside Dad) and I'm learning left and right still. I have SO much more to learn too. It's been neat to watch the Lord lead me to specific books and/or people in my life to help in this specific area. He will guide you too, if you ask Him.
"All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty."
"And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up." Galations 6:9
"Blessed are those who fear the Lord, who walk in his ways. You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours." Psalm 128:1,2
"And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near."
