A Seed of Faith

We are like trees in an immense, dense, garden populating the whole entire Earth. Together we shape this great, beautiful, lush garden. Each one of us is unique. Collectively we form a magnificent display of creativity.

Here we begin…

As a seed, we took root in the deep, dark ground. We don’t like the dark, so from the very beginning, we sought out the light. We are all doing the same thing here. All of us are just trying to find more light. Our passions are driven by the desire to stretch out our limbs to have the fullest view while extending our trunks high into the sky. Our fruit is the sweetest and many come from far and wide just to have a taste of it.

A Seed of Faith

Like a seed,
Deep in the dark ground,
That finds nourishment from its surroundings,
Emerges from the darkness as it seeks out the light.
We are like that seed born into darkness,
We come alive when we find the light.
Our journeys nourish us and give us strength,
We grow as we learn what is good and what is right.
Our souls become well rooted,
Deep within the soil we were born into,
Our branches sore as they reach high into the sky,
In the forest,
We are a great tree,
Nothing is impossible,
Nothing can move us from our spot.

We are like trees, you and me. You are the tree of life and I am the tree of knowledge. He created us. He created Her. We are the one who learns what is good versus evil.

We are made, perfect.

We are an image.

Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image…”

Genesis 1:26

There we were in the beginning in the end.

We are here, on Earth, as His Bride trying to understand what is Heaven. We are a perfect work that is being made perfect. We are the two trees that started this garden and we are the two trees that are left standing tall in the end.

Our Creator created us to be like Him who is in Heaven. We are here now, as we were there in the beginning, as we are there in the end.

He always just is.

He is and we are.

Like trees,

He is the man and we are the woman.

He gives us life and we learn Him.

He is the Groom and we are His Bride.

Everything is just an image.
