Trying…and Praying

[3] And he told them many things in parables, saying: “A sower went out to sow. [4] And as he sowed, some seeds fell along the path, and the birds came and devoured them. [5] Other seeds fell on rocky ground, where they did not have much soil, and immediately they sprang up, since they had no depth of soil, [6] but when the sun rose they were scorched. And since they had no root, they withered away. [7] Other seeds fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked them. [8] Other seeds fell on good soil and produced grain, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. [9] He who has ears, let him hear.”
(Matthew 13:3-9 ESV)

I read this parable yesterday morning, and tried hard–I mean, really tried– to be a “good” seed.

Of course, I failed. I was impatient all morning, although I kept reminding myself to be just the opposite. That just made my frustration increase. But then I did something I’d totally forgotten to do. I prayed. And throughout the day, with God’s help, I improved. I still wasn’t perfect, but God helped me, which means a lot to me.

With His help and mercy, I’m still trying to improve. He’s always there to remind me and help me. Always.
