I hope that what I’m about to say will give you a better understanding of what it means to sow. I had to learn a hard lesson because I was really getting frustrated because I wasn’t seeing the harvest that I believed I deserved. Honestly, for those of you that have been following me for a while you know that I’m a giver. Be it money, information, advice etc… I give it freely! Even in that I felt like I wasn’t getting what I sowed, but after my lesson I realized I was getting EXACTLY what I was sowing. As a business coach I help people make their vision of becoming an entrepreneur a reality. I have to admit that I started to get frustrated when calls came in from happy clients saying “OMG Ms.Mason I did what you said and in less than 60 days I made $50k in my business.
Then I received a call from a friend who said “I took what you told me about doing business online and I made $24k in 3 weeks”. Now please understand these aren’t exaggerated numbers at all and this is only to name a few. I will say when it comes making money online, I know the system of doing that. Well I was very happy for them but I had a few questions. What I didn’t understand was, if they’re making that much off of the information and marketing plans I give them, why is it that I’m not making at least $50-$150k a month? I want to open up a unique transitional facility for women and it takes a lot of money to do that. I want to empower more men an women around the world, but it takes money. I want to start a molestation victims hotline but it takes resources to do that. I pray, I fast, I have faith, I do the work, so what was I doing wrong?
I was explaining my dilemma to a Pastor friend of mine and he asked “April who are you sowing into? And do they yield the results that you want?”. I had to say “hmmm good question” and one that I didn’t have a good answer for. At that moment I realized that my clients sowed into me because they wanted the results that I get and they were getting exactly that!! I couldn’t be upset at that because they believed that I was good ground. From that day on I totally changed where I sowed and how I sowed. I stopped sowing into the poor and changed it to giving to the poor. When you sow into bad ground it doesn’t mean you are not getting a harvest, you’re just going to get the results of the ground you sowed into be it bad or good!
I had another pastor friend that was having problems with his church and needed help keeping the building. He didn’t have a lot of members, but he did have a vision out of this world. Well, he went to several of his pastor friends and none of them would sow into him to help him out because they didn’t want to reap his results! I even watched a WELL known pastor come over to the church and only GIVE $100 when he knew the need. However he went over to another church and SOWED a $1mil! He did this because he wanted to reap the harvest of a mega church and as of today he has several locations….and this was only a few years ago.
I said all this to say,who you are connected to and sow into is very crucial in your reaping a harvest process. You don’t have time to continue to sow into ground where you aren’t reaping a harvest simply out of obligation! Yes I said it “sowing out of obligation“. Many of us are guilty of that because were are told we are robbing God or cursed with a curse if we don’t sow. I encourage you to continue to sow, just REDIRECT your seed and sow into those that are where you want to be!
