About The Blog: From One Tiny Mustard Seed….
Hi, I’m Jill, thank you for visiting Mustard Seed Blog – so named after the mustard plant growing at my front door, grown from a single mustard seed, given to me by a friend, who said, as she pressed it into my hand, “that’s all it takes, Jill”. Unbeknown to her, that very morning God had reminded me of a prophetic word given to me by another friend over 20 years ago, that I would go into the field of creative writing (something I had no interest in at all back then)
I took that little seed home and planted it in a tiny 5ml medicine cup on the kitchen windowsill. It grew and grew, and several pot transfers later it is now a big flourishing in a heavy earthenware pot outdoors, reminding me daily, each time I look at it, that our Faithful God is always true to his promises!
He lives, breathes and works through his people, every single day. It’s good to share what he’s doing, because we can encourage one another that way.
And that’s The aim of Mustard Seed Blog – encouragement. I hope my blog posts never come across as ‘this is how you do it’ – as though I’d ‘arrived’ myself, because I definitely haven’t! Like you, I mess up, on a regular basis, but I’m a work in progress in the Potter’s loving hands.
Isaiah 35:3-4 is the mission statement of Mustard Seed Blog:
“With this news, strengthen those who have tired hands, and encourage those who have weak knees. Say to those with fearful hearts, “Be strong, and do not fear, for your God is coming to destroy your enemies. He is coming to save you.”
PS: You will notice when you click on the highlighted scripture references in my blog posts that they direct you to BibleGateway.com
This is because Mustard Seed Blog highly advocates the use of Bible Gateway as a Bible study tool.
