Casting your Bread upon the waters.

Hey hi,
Its been long since I came here. I had not been stable but I’m getting better now. Well, this post is about something I learnt today.
About three months ago, my SDcard crashed and so I lost a lot of files. I love music so much and it was really painful to loose my songs. Recovering them seemed impossible. I just got a new sdcard and lackadaisically gathered new songs but those old ones that were lost could not be forgotten.
Today, I came across a guy in my church who was playing one of the songs that was on my crashed sdcard. Then I remembered that I was the one who sent that song to him. He needed songs on his then new phone and had asked me to transfer songs to him. So I sent about half of the songs on my phone to his. When I saw him today, I asked if those songs were still there and if I could take them. He replied in the affirmative.
As I transfered back to my phone, I began to wish that I had earlier transfered more songs than I did to his phone. I could only get back the amount I gave out before and a little more which I didn’t have before. Then it hit me. Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days.
Ecclesiastes 11:1 KJV
I had cast my bread of songs and I was only getting back what I spread abroad. And as I type this now, this other scripture comes to mind. “Consider carefully what you hear,” he continued. “With the measure you use, it will be measured to you—and even more.
Mark 4:24 NIV
What is your bread and how well are you casting it upon the waters. It could be some form of help rendered, money, words of encouragement etc. Casting it upon the waters would only bring it back to you when you need it in due season. Do your best to cast your bread upon the waters today.

Selah!
