Eating Seeds

I gave you my Word as a seed to plant
Into the heart of the lost and faint.

I tilled the ground and the seed was ready.
The soil was nourished, the rains came steady.

But fields lay barren, the harvest was scares.
The fruit was little – instead there grew tares.

I saw in dismay you were eating seeds,
As you sat in church – in comfortable seats.

Don’t be hiding your Light in a world that is dark.
Now go plant my Word! Go and leave my mark!

About Heidi Viars

“If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth ...” ― C.S. Lewis ..... In my pursuit of self, I found utter darkness. In my pursuit of truth, I found Jesus, who dispelled the darkness by His forgiveness. Now I follow Him and try to understand Him better. I am a wife, mother of 6, blogger and love taking photographs of sunrises.

    As a gardener (small veggie garden), I “grieve” over plants that die and seeds that don’t germinate. Thank you for the reminder to plant God’s seeds in the lives of others. Our retired pastor’s wife would always say, “We are to sow seeds, not throw seeds!” May we all be more intentional in sharing God’s word!
