The idea of a seed starting small, taking root, and growing large is seen numerous times throughout the Bible. It is such a simple concept, that is truly so powerful. Just a little seed. A tiny, little seed. It can do so much. It can grow in to a tree too large for me to wrap my arms around, to provide shade from the sun, food, and shelter. A tiny little seed can provide fields of food, enough to feed any who hunger. It all starts out so small.
Just last week, a new seed of an idea was planted in my heart. I can see from here, how God has been working things in my life to prepare for this seed. God is a great farmer. He knows how to prepare land for a seed. If I had seen this seed a few years ago, I would have smiled at it, perhaps. But I certainly wouldn’t have thought it was anything that was meant for me.
This tiny little seed.
Have you ever held a seed, that you didn’t really know what it would grow in to? I do that regularly, actually. I’m not the best gardener. I can tell what corn will do 😉 And sunflowers. That’s about it. But if you give me a flower seed, I can plant it. If given some instruction on shade versus sun, etc., I could make the plant grow. I would enjoy what the seed would produce. And I could share the plant and brighten someone else’s life.
This tiny little seed here is going to grow in to something great. I know I can’t see what the fruits of this thing will be yet. But I just know, holding on to this idea, that it will be great. I need time to research. I have links saved to read when I have time. I actually signed up for a webinar tomorrow that will lay some base knowledge for me.
God, being God, gives these seeds at the perfect timing. I’ll be prepared to plant this thing. I am excited about how this can help people! And God, being God, did not drop this in to my lap when I have a week of open time slots. He knows me well . . I sometimes (historically, most of the time) rush in to great ideas a little too quickly. So I have this seed. I’m holding it in my hand. And I’m warming it up while I learn the best way to plant it!
Tonight I am thankful for this tiny seed of an idea that will be a blessing to others! I don’t want my vagueness to leave you frustrated, so I will share that this will be a facet of my real estate brokerage, Ethos Real Estate West. It will be a service offered to those in need. And I think it will be wonderful!
