Faithful Fridays ~ The Story of the Two Farmers

Hi again!  Welcome to Faithful Fridays!


I started Faithful Fridays so that Christians could have one designated day a week (although I don't think they should keep it to just one day) to share something about their Faith--a prayer request, answered prayer, Bible verse, something God's laid on your heart, etc. To participate in Faithful Fridays, just grab the button above for your post along with a link to my blog somewhere in your post, too. After you've published your post, please come let me know in your comment that you participated and leave me a link to your blog. I'd love to come read your post!

Today I want to share a short story with you.
 
I heard a story about two farmers.
 
Both of the farmers were desperate for rain.  Both of them prayed to God for rain, but only one farmer went out and prepared his fields for it.
 
Which one do you think trusted God for the rain?
 
Which one are you?
 
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
-Matthew 7:7-8

I also want to ask prayers for the Bryant family--Ms. Jan and her aunt left for China today to get their darling little girl, Leiney Grace.  You can follow their journey HERE.
 
Have a blessed Friday!

I love that story, Joy! I also like the one where the entire church prayed for rain, but only one little girl brought her umbrella! :)

I am participating in Faithful Fridays! Thanks for doing it!

And Yay! Leiney Grace is coming home!
