The idea for a blog came to me when a friend gave me a single mustard seed, that God told me to plant, while reminding me of a promise He’d made to me over 20 years ago that He was going to use me in creative writing. The seed, that I originally planted in a tiny 5ml medicine cup, has grown into a large flourishing plant, now in a big earthenware pot outdoors, and reminds me daily that our 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.
The aim of Mustard Seed Blog is simply, 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.”
