After a farmer plants a seed in the ground, does he go and sit on his hands for six months and watch TV? No. The whole time that he's waiting, he's getting ready for the harvest. After he's planted, he's cultivating, watering, weeding, fertilizing, and preparing for the harvest.
The point is this: If you find yourself waiting on God, use the time to get ready for his answer. Patience is not passivity. Waiting is a time for preparation.

What an inspirational story! I saw this story tonight on NBC about a gymnast who grew up in the Bronx and through many hardships like growing up in the ghetto, getting beat up on his way home, struggling through a ripped tendon that almost ended his aspiring career to name a few.. Against all odds, he made it to the Olympics!
Kid's name is John Orozco, a Puerto Rican from the Bronx. 19 years old. In the London Olympics 2012. Share this story with your kids. Sometimes you have to fight for what you believe in.. Don't give up! Great, great story!!!
This is a great song, great video, and a great story!
