God led one of His sowers
to a fresh lot of soil.
He then handed the servant
a bundle of good seeds.
God would cause the seeds to grow,
if the sower would plant them.
So the sower watched for the time
–there’s a moment for everything, you know.
Here and there a seed went in
as the servant carefully planted.
Sometimes the seeds sank in very deep,
while others just lay on the top.
The sower sometimes had to stay inside
and watch as God watered the seeds.
almost every day the sower would visit the soil
to see how the seeds were doing.
The sower grew to care deeply for the soil
and tried to keep weeds and briars away.
Every now and then a sprout would poke through,
and the sower praised God for each one.
Oh, how long it seemed to the sower
that it took for those seeds to grow.
But God reminded that in His time
all things become beautiful.
So, the sower chose to trust God
and wait to see what He would do.
Someday, the sower knew, the soil would produce
and the fruit of its crop would be sweet.
Someday God would bring out beautiful blossoms
that would fill the air with their fragrance
Someday, someday …
only God knew.
