“He Loved The Soil”

“Also he built towers in the desert. He dug many wells, for he had much livestock both in the lowlands and in the plains; he also had farmers and vinedressers in the mountains and in Carmel, for he loved the soil.”  2 Chronicles 26:10

My youngest likes to grow things.

Lord, thank You for loving us and tending to the soil of our souls.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Growing Us                                                            

Oh He loves
the soil we’re made of

delights to plant
and see what grows

watering
what has become hard

pulling out stones
as He goes.

Sowers

“Then He spoke many things to them in parables, saying, ‘Behold, a sower went out to sow.'”  Matthew 13:3

In the parable of the sower and the interpretation Jesus gives to His disciples, He never once faults the sower for where the seed falls.

Oh Jesus, help us to spread Your word as often and as much as we can, not withholding it according  to our judgment of the soil condition of the hearts around us.  Here is a simple poem . . .

Open That Hand

Whatcha gonna do with that seed He brought
gonna hold it tight, with all you’ve got
’til you find the perfect place, just the right spot
where you can make sure it grows, as you think it ought
Oh, whatcha gonna do with that seed He brought?
