IN THIS PICTURE ~
We can see the hot air balloon far away. Looking over the dirt before us, is green grass and mountains. The sky is blue and yet the wonder of what is in those little minds that look around. Our
lives are learning and growing just like a seed planted into the ground. God has purpose our lives for much more than we know.
Let us make this personal this a person story starting now. A story of your life and planting thoughts are important. Lets read in The Bible about planting a vision of a new day.
Mark 4 New Century Version
A Story About Planting Seed
1 Again Jesus began teaching by the lake. A great crowd gathered around him, so he sat down in a boat near the shore. All the people stayed on the shore close to the water.
2 Jesus taught them many things, using stories. He said, 3 “Listen! A farmer went out to plant his seed. 4 While he was planting, some seed fell by the road, and the birds came and ate it up. 5 Some seed fell on rocky ground where there wasn’t much dirt. That seed grew very fast, because the ground was not deep. 6 But when the sun rose, the plants dried up because they did not have deep roots. 7 Some other seed fell among thorny weeds, which grew and choked the good plants. So those plants did not produce a crop. 8 Some other seed fell on good ground and began to grow. It got taller and produced a crop. Some plants made thirty times more, some made sixty times more, and some made a hundred times more.”
9 Then Jesus said, “Let those with ears use them and listen!”
HAVE A VISION ~
Each of us was designed by God. The story above talks about how we must listen and be a doer of the word. Jesus taught by using stories! He showed us how examples are important and I love that. I can get a visual of what is happening, just like you can see that. Verse 9, tell us that Jesus said, "let those with ears use them and listen!".
Listen to those who care about you and take care of yourself. We can get so busy in life, we forget that some of plant things different, water different and take care of things different. As long as we are doing things the way God wants, it works. What you do with your seeds you have been given totally matters. Be the one who plants on good soil and waters it with the word of God. Doing the right thing in life is not always easy! We hear stories of others who have accomplished so much in life and we wonder what we did wrong. The wonder of yesterdays is done and now you can do everything about today.
Let us remember to encourage ourselves today and give thanks unto God. Planting seeds of hope and viewing ourselves stronger than ever. Everybody in this world makes mistakes because the Bible says we have ALL sinned and fallen short ~ Romans 3:23
Shaking off the dust, the dirt or the thoughts that run through your head, can open your mind to a greater understanding about God and yourself. See yourself as an overcomer today and press on my friend, press forward to greater things in this day. My prayers continue for you who read this, your family/friends.
