Seeding a Lawn (or a Life)

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to verticut and seed our lawn. This was a first for me as Nicole and I are homeowners for just over a year. I learned some things that have application in life.

  • Choose the right seed – What you choose to plant will determine what will grow
  • Mow the lawn before verticutting – Some experiences in life require preparation to receive the most benefit.
  • Make sure to water after planting – Like choosing the right seed, follow up care matters for growth in our life.
  • Be patient – Not all the seed will take and that is okay.
  • Chopping up the yard can be helpful for its health – growth can come through change and pain

I pray that I continue to sow seed through my life that will produce fruit for God’s kingdom in my life.

I pray that others will sow seed in me that will find good soil.

I pray that God will continue to shape my life even if it means chopping up my desires.
