Called to Sow

Sower scattering any seed

Wildly without any foresight

God scatters His Word as planned

His aim, truthful in its flight


Called to sow His righteous seeds

Following a living light

Sharing of God’s Holy Word

Walking in Jesus’ delight


These efforts shall bear His fruit

Quenching the rich, fertile ground

God adds the living water

Patient, His trust to be found


Not every seed shall bloom now

Some will lie quiet and wait

Just as a pine cone pauses

Holds seeds for their proper fate


Spreading God’s Word to others

Using our freedom for good

Allowing Spirit to work

Sowing for Him as we should


Sharing love and forgiveness

Our Lord’s eternal Word shines

Taking blessed, scattered seeds

Harvesting fruit of all kinds

From Isaiah 55:10-11:  “For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return there until they have watered the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and succeed in the thing for which I sent it.”
