Today’s Scattered Seeds
Have you ever gone out someplace with preconceived notions? Have you ever thought to yourself, “Yeah, I’ll go, but I don’t expect to have fun?” Or maybe you said, “This is going to be a great night!”
If that sounds at all familiar, then chances are you set the pace for the night before you even arrived. In much the same way, we set the pace for each coming year by the attitudes that we carry in with us.
How do we view it? What do we think? Are we hoping for the best, or expecting the worst? Are we trusting God for the future? Or worried about what the future might bring?
As you enter the new year, fear not, and remember your purpose, dear friend: keep your light burning bright until The Master returns.
We don’t know what will happen tomorrow, or the next day, or the day after that, but we do know that every day is ordained by the Lord. In fact, Psalm 139:16 tells us that all of our days were written down in His book before a single one came to be. All of our days have been planned, and each one is safe in His hands.

Tilling the Soil
Read Luke 12:22-48.
Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning; and ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately. (Luke 12:35-36, KJV)
Darlene Schacht and her husband Michael live in Manitoba Canada where the summers are beautiful and the winters are cold. Together they’ve come to learn that relationships aren’t always easy, but that marriage, the way God intended it to be, is a treasure worth fighting for.
She began her publishing journey about twelve years ago when she pioneered one of the first online magazines for Christian women, known at the time as “Christian Women Online Magazine.” After three years, Darlene left CWO to blog as a solo author at Time-Warp Wife Ministries.
It was also during this transition that she worked alongside actress Candace Cameron Bure to write the NYT Best-Selling book, Reshaping it All: Motivation for Spiritual and Physical Fitness. Reshaping it All was the winner of both the 2011 USA Best Book Awards and the 2012 Christian Reading Retailers Choice Awards.
Author of more than 15 books, Darlene continues to write and to minister to her readers through her blog at TimeWarpWife.com.
