I said, “I have toiled in vain, I have spent my strength for nothing and vanity; yet surely the justice due to me is with the Lord, and my reward with my God.” Isaiah 49:4 (NASB)

Jesus said, “The kingdom of God is as if someone would scatter seed on the ground, and would sleep and rise night and day, and the seed would sprout and grow, he does not know how. The earth produces of itself, first the stalk, then the head, then the full grain in the head.” Mark 4:26–28

O Master Gardener, if the soil of our lives is to be receptive to the seed of your word, our lives must be fertilized with your love and grace to promote good and healthy spiritual growth. We want to produce good fruit for your kingdom. Amen.
