good seeds

i'm all over that verse, John 12:24...
It's all deep and meaningful - and i always wanted to be the kind of person that bore good fruit for my Master.

24 Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.

But it never occurred to me before how bad fruit is also full of seeds.  & the decaying poisonous fruit withers and falls to the ground, spilling seeds into willing soil.  All of a sudden i understood a little better how sometimes these generations long battles begin...

Those dang seeds. 

& in my minds eye, i see the vicious ugly seeds that fall, scatter and take root and start to grow.  i know what evil each tiny seed is capable of... & the thought of it is enough to fill me with despair...

i want to be done with it, Father!  Here, now... i want this finished!  Render each poison seed sterile... i know You're capable.  With dirt under my fingernails, i commit to digging out each one - and casting it aside for destruction.

Thank you. The visual is powerful, yet inadequate to describe how God is able to change the soil to where the bad seeds are unable to take root where He's the gardener. He only needs us to let Him have His way with the ground and we don't have to get dirty. He's does it all, with our permission and willingness to endure the occasional tilling ;)Your heart is so pure, your spirit so willing, your faith so big. You will hear well done good and faithful daughter when your time comes. Do not grow weary in doing good.
