The Seed of Faith, by Shirley Ann Washam

Cut down by the adversary
Left broken and scared
But a seed has been planted
By the master, with care

Another will water
And a different one tend
He will give increase
In the end

The shade and sunlight
Will help it to grow
How He brings it new life
Only He knows

It sprouts and it blooms
A fragrance of praise
Stretching toward heaven
Growing closer each day

It’s strength is a mystery
Casting mountains to seas
Breaking bonds of doubt
Setting captives free

Singing songs of salvation
Of mercy and grace
Pulling up fear
Planting peace in its place

Growing strong and tall
Stretching its roots
Hoping and believing
Producing His fruits


About Shirley Ann Washam

I am an extremely blessed, divorced mother of four AMAZING children. Above that, I am a child of God! I pray that He would use this blog to speak through me to those who are hurting and discouraged. My goal is to share whatever is given by our LORD to uplift and encourage those who, like me, are blessed beyond measure, but still sometimes find themselves struggling to find answers and need a little encouragement. If you are in need of encouragement, I pray that you find it here, in the words that He speaks through me.
