Heart's Garden

Any fool can count the seeds in an apple. Only God can count all the apples in one seed. ~ Robert H. Schuller

You know, the last couple of harvest seasons I have had the opportunity to work apples and pears. Just one tree gives such a bountiful harvest of fruit. And it always amazes me that the whole tree full of apples/pears came from a tiny seed. Eric's grandfather didn't really know how much fruit would come from those seeds...but he had faith enough to plant them, work them, and hope for a good harvest. And year after year..... harvest after harvest the trees bear fruit...... all from one seed.

Our lives are that way too. God's Word is that seed... and if we plant it, work it and let it bear the fruit in our lives..... what a wonderful harvest! God sees the fruit our lives bear in His name... our children.... our children's children... or that person who has watched us in silence... or a chance encounter that we may not think much about... but God can use us to bear fruit and in turn... that fruit can bear more fruit. How awesome it is to know that He sees all the fruit from one seed.

2Cor 9:10 He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness.
