That Little Mustard Seed

For most of my life I have probably been considered strong-willed.  I am not shy about sharing my thoughts and feelings.  Sometimes it is a blessing & others it is a curse.

Today I’m experiencing another type of strength.

When my children were young, my mama-bear persona was always ready to protect my cubs no matter who or what was waiting in the bushes to attack them.

My children are adults now.  Have their lives been easy…NO! Has God used their times in the valley to teach them to be strong in the face of adversity…YES!

Our kids were raised to know that there is nothing that they could ever do that would lessen our love for them. But more importantly, God loves them even more than we do! My heart nearly burst when both Mark & Rachel received Christ before they were 4 years old.

I am in awe at how the mustard seeds that my husband & I planted have been transformed into two amazing godly adults, who daily seek to ABIDE in Him.

Again he said, “What shall we say the kingdom of God is like, or what parable shall we use to describe it? It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest of all seeds on earth. Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants, with such big branches that the birds can perch in its shade.” – Mark 4:30-32 NIV

May you each be made strong as you are obedient God’s call on your life make disciples in all the earth (Matthew 28:19-20)



  1. Beautiful! This is a wonderful testimony, “I am in awe at how the mustard seeds that my husband & I planted have been transformed into two amazing godly adults, who daily seek to ABIDE in Him.”

  2. I’ve never thought about children of Christian’s as being “Little Mustard Seeds.” I love the analogy! It’s wonder that both your kids received Christ at an early age and have stayed with Him. My son, who I asked you to pray for recently, is doing better. Thank you for lifting him up to the Lord.

  4. I love your saying for this post! Yes I hate waiting for those darn little seeds to grow! We didn’t always do such a great job as parents, but seeing our 2 boys still following Jesus and trying to be good fathers makes it all worthwhile. Thanks for sharing
