Day 18


Little Bitty Seed


I’m just a little seed

nothing much right now

but I have huge dreams

of what I want to be.


I was planted in the backyard

deep in the fertile soil

sometimes I feel forgotten

no one sees me hiding here.


It’s kind of dark and dirty

but I’m used to the smell

I wonder when I’ll see the light?

Seems to be taking too many years!


What’s this? Oh!

Something’s happening!

The soil is moving weird

and now I’m growing up in here!


Thank you, Lord,

I found the light

the only way

was keeping my mind


on the truth and the life

of the One

who created me and placed me

in the right place

at the right time.


And now I’m grown up

I’ve become my dream

I’m tall and strong

a shady tree for all to see.

“for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed,

you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move;

and nothing will be impossible for you.”

Matthew 17:20
