Seeds

A seed-
Just a mustard seed…

A single mustard seed
Did anyone stop to think,
How small that really is?

How minuscule,
Almost nonexistent
This little mustard seed

Not potato, tomato,
Barley, nor chia
Has the power
To make mountains cower

With belief…

Faith-

As small as the seed
The words you speak
Will cause those same mountains to heed…

Seeds matter,
Faith is paramount
The power you need
in the words that you speak

Just believe-

But there’s problems…
Faith is the substance
Of things you can’t see

A sad powerless stillness –

The mountains no longer move
They don’t even sway
When did we put all our seeds away…

~Matthew 17:20-21 -He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.~
