This week’s FMF writing prompt is: POSSIBLE
Setting my timer for five minutes, and . . . GO:
My teenage son is planning his first garden this year, and I think I may be more excited than he is. We made a list of plants we’d like to try to grow, including a mix of vegetables and a few different flowers. I’m utterly clueless about how to successfully plant vegetables from seed and reap a harvest in the end, but I’m eager to learn and watch him figure it out.
Mostly, though, I’m fascinated by the wonder of a tiny seed holding so much potential. So much possibility in such a small speck. To think that one seed will eventually become something edible that can feed and nourish my family is astounding to me. I’m so eager to watch the transformation and growth.
It makes me think of the wonder of our spiritual lives, how the Lord can take faith as small as a mustard seed and use it to uproot trees and move mountains (Luke 17:6, Matthew 17:20).
May we not underestimate something because it is small or slow to grow; instead, may we see the potential and possibility that it can possess, and trust the Lord to fulfill its purposes in His time.

Faith’s tiny mustard-seed,
its little shoot unfurled
may be all we really need
to save this sad old world,
for it says we truly know
that we’re in need of aid,
that on our own we’re gonna blow
all progress that we’ve made.
Faith is tugging on His sleeve
with head so humbly bowed,
and faith is coming to believe
that we are allowed
to put aside our silly pride,
and, hand in His, walk by His side.
Have your son check out Gardener’s Path (a website), my daughter writes a lot of articles for them and they are very detailed in how to grow a plethora of things :). And there are photos of my grandson in a lot of the articles she wrote ;).
I’m going to check it out!
And just think, those tiny seeds won’t just nourish your family but also your son’s mind as he learns and works the ground. And…they will nourish your momma’s heart as you watch all the growth taking place in him and the garden! Love this Kate!
Love this! The potential of the mustard seed is endlessly fascinating to me. I recently looked up a picture of what the full-grown tree looks like, and it’s ENORMOUS. It really makes me stop and think about what is actually possible in each little seed God has planted in my life.
Never doubt small beginnings! Anything is possible with Him!
Yes! I never fully appreciated the possible until I met Jesus! Now I see them everywhere. 🙂
