The Gravity of Seeds


We all want a healthy harvest but wanting isn't enough;
to harvest what we hope for takes the long, hard work of Love

Hang in there, fellow field-hands!

All a man's ways are pure in his own eyes, 
but his motives are weighed out by the LORD.

Through dad's life he proved the deed/'seed'
above was far more than 'getting in mother-in-law's good books.
His life is a legacy of helpfulness.
And isn't it ironic how even in harvest time 
we are planting and watering.

 Let us not become weary in doing good, 
for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

Sometimes we are so weary and tempted to despair, but God is faithful...

2 Thess. 3:3
But the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen you 
and guard you from the evil one

Prayer for Today.

"Lord, let us sense the seeds we strew
and recognize the recompense
when harvest time comes due,
In Thy Name we pray

It matters, for we scatter seeds 
Through every high and low 
Where words and prayers and fruit of deeds 
At Harvest Time will show 

It matters, what we think upon 
Where, who we choose to serve 
Will either make us weak or strong 
When life throws us a curve 

It matters, how we proceed thus 
Trailblazers of a kind 
For little feet that follow us 
Not very far behind 

It matters, what we say and do 
The ‘why’ of yes and no 
Like little seeds we strew and strew 
That grow and grow and grow

It matters; Every. Single. Day
No matter where life leads
Its ups and downs will soon display
The gravity of seeds

It matters. No one can mock God
The hand reaps what it sows
Where what seems hidden in time's sod
The harvest will expose

Proverbs 20:11
Even a young man is known by his actions--
whether his conduct is pure and upright.

Matthew 7:20
So then, by their fruit you will recognize them.
