Her Mustard Seed by Raymond A. Foss
It is there, deep in her young heart
bearing fruits of faith, in our lives
sharing the belief she has that
“God loves you”,
knowing that the bread and wine
are just that until they are blessed
giving hugs when they are needed
loving as a four year old can

Oh yes, she has faith of a mustard seed
But it is growing too deep inside her
in the fertile ground of her soul
with water and sun and the gift of your church
and gifts of the spirit
the place she loves so much
where she is now
getting ready for the flowing spring of your word
in vacation bible school

Fill her Lord, fill them all
with the living water
to bring forth a mighty mustard bush
bearing more fruits, being shelter in times of strife
in their lives and the lives of those they touch
Help her nurture and prune and care
for that growing seed, for the plant
deep in her heart

Matthew 17:20 “He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly I tell you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.””

Matthew 13:31-32 “He put before them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in his field; it is the smallest of all the seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.””
