Good Morning Everyone!
Thank you, Lord for this beautiful day! Whether rain or shine, it is beautiful to see another day.  This is the day that you made Lord, we will rejoice and be glad in it! In Jesus name, Amen!!

Ephesians 2:8-9 reads, “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith.  And this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God, not by works, so that no one can boast.

Thank you Lord for loving us so much that you give us grace, not for what we do but because we believe.  We believe that Jesus is our Lord and Savior and that He died for us, to save us from our sins.

I am thankful Lord, through the tiniest of faith, like a mustard seed, my faith as grown into a big beautiful flower of purpose, to live through you, to grow others for your kingdom in order that we will be the biggest garden, full of God’s grace and precious glory, Amen

Wow, what a parable!  I think I just added to what it is that God has already said in Matthew 

Matthew 13:31-32 31He told them another parable: "The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. 32Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds come and perch in its branches."

This is for all that believe that we have been born again, saved, birthed into God’s grace and mercy for our lives.  We are like planted seeds, growing into a beautiful flower in God’s kingdom, to flourish and allow others to grow from what we have sown in them.  

Just like Ephesians reads, it is through our faith, not the works of what we do, but what we believe.  Believe in God’s plan for your life because the seed has already been planted.  Allow faith to guide, even as little as a mustard seed, it will continue to grow as we grow in Him.

God is our Gardener and that we have been planted to grow, to birth what he has planted inside of us for his glory and for his Kingdom. Trust the process.  We are all part of this garden, watered by his grace, grown through our faith and blossom into what the gospel teaches us every day.  Continue to Love and grow for God and He will birth in you, all that you are made of, for His Kingdom.

Be Blessed and Always Pray!
