Planting Seed

Making ready the soil
   for the planting seed,
Or posturing the heart
   to embrace great love,
Requires a gentle gardener
   and a loving lord;
God is both and one.

Lord God, let not Your seed
   fall upon a stony path,
      or rocky soil, or amongst
          choking thorns, as my
              heart can often be.

Please prepare this soil
   for Your planting seed
      that it may be good,
        that it may well grow
          whatever You will
             in a heart open
                only to Thee.

Psalm 10:17
1 Chronicles 29:18
Matthew 13:1-23
