Mark 4:26-34

Lord, of Your Kingdom, You invite
Us to join You in harvest and sowing
You empower my life to join You today
You nurture the seeds I am throwing

Guide me in each seeded moment
May Your Love triumph over all others
May the world notice all You reveal
And worship at what they discover

May I humbly approach each moment
Whether mine is to harvest or till
May I always receive Your direction
And seek not mine, but Your will

If I find a great place to be planting
If I notice some fruit on the vine
May I always be quick to give glory
To Your Labor and Love, not to mine

Lord, I’m thankful at some earlier moment
You saw the soil of my life
You saw potential for nurturing seeds
Planting Your Love in all my strife

You’ve saved me and brought me Your healing
From seeds that by others You’d sown
I join You today, as mere mustard seed
Knowing from it grows Kingdom and Throne

Mark 4:30-32

The smallest seed of faithful Love
Can grow into a forest of change
The tiniest indwelling of God Himself
The cosmos can rearrange

Lord we often measure our lives
We measure our each given days
In our best efforts we may ask ourselves
‘How much does this increase God’s praise?’

We have been making bricks for Egypt
Even after You have set us free
Seeing our value in what we produce
Instead of contented to ‘be’

You set us free from economies of measure
You flip such things downside up
The smallest drop of Your Kingdom Love
Can fill overflowing our cup

May such a Truth not squelch our desire
To live and proclaim Love revealed
Lord Jesus, we ask You, send us Your Spirit
That through us the wounded are healed

But also continue, as we live Your Love
To allow us to see with Your Heart
That we may value all, things great or small
Knowing how You complete what You start

Hebrews 13:20-21

When our world thinks of blessing
They often see dollar signs
Strength to fight disease or war
And freedom from daily grind

But when God’s followers pray to blessed
We are reminded right here
That it has little to do with our bank accounts
And more that God would come near

That God would make you complete
In everything Good so that you
Could do everything which is pleasing to Him
Which you were created to do

To reflect the image of God
To reveal His nature as Love
To live in such a way that shows
The great shepherd has offered enough

The same God of peace who brought Jesus back
Eternal Covenant by blood made
Is the God who offers through us to shine
When our world can’t see through the shade.

May we define blessing as living as light
In a land afraid of the dark
Proclaiming His Love & Hope with our lives
When all the world can hear is stark
