Division and multiplication

I came across a link from Amy’s Humble Musings this morning to this post titled “Multiplication” that has been ministering to my heart ever since I read it. If Amy has linked to it, you probably have already seen it, but just in case, I wanted to share it.

Here is one paragraph from the post. This and the last one especially spoke to me.

I can only divide myself, my time and my effort. And in the dividing, in my own strength, it shrinks away to nothingness. The fruit shrivels before it is ripe. The harvest never comes. I am cold, frustrated, and bitter. But when I give it all to Him, it is multiplied. In His hands my efforts yield an abundance that defies logic.

Why do we so often forget this?

  2. Me again.
    Hey I have a question that’s not related to this post but I am in hopes you can help me. I see you are on wordpress too. I am having trouble adding the widgits to the sidebar. I can do it on blogspot but not on wordpress. Any advise?

  3. Hi Debbie,

    If you click on “My Dashboard,” then click on “Presentation,” then on the black toolbar under that, click on “Widgets,” that will take you to a page that says “Sidebar Arrangement” at the top. At the bottom of that page are the widgets available — you just click on what you want and drag it into the column that says “Sidebar 1.” Then you click on the box to the right if each widget title to open that box to put into it what you want.

    Hope that helps! šŸ™‚
