The Bean Seed Grows Up

Post  thirsty on Sun 23 Dec 2007, 6:40 am

I received this email from a friend and this story really touched my heart. I wanted to share it over here on Christmas time.

It was cold and wet under the dark brown soil and the seed shivered. There must be a mistake. He was supposed to be a tall, green beanstalk. "God." he cried out. "What's happening to me? I'm supposed to be a tall, green beanstalk"

God whispered back. "Wait."

And so the seed waited. He waited all day and all night and all that changed was his skin became loose. "God!" he cried out. "What's happening to me? I'm supposed to be a tall green beanstalk."

God whispered back. "Wait."

And so the seed waited. He waited all week. Seven days and seven nights and all that changed was his skin fell off and a root started to grow. He liked the root for it pushed him up through the soil, closer to the warmth of the shiny, yellow sun. But he was still worried. "God!" he cried out. "What's happening to me? I'm supposed to be a tall, green beanstalk."

God whispered back. "Wait."

And so the seed waited. He waited another week. Seven days and seven nights and all that changed was the root pushed him above ground and he grew two small leaves. He was happy to be in the sun, but he still wasn't a beanstalk. "God!" he cried out. "What's happening to me? I'm supposed to be a tall, green beanstalk."

God whispered back. "Wait."

And so the seed waited. He waited two weeks. Fourteen days and fourteen nights and all that changed was he grew some more leaves and roots. He knew he was getting stronger as the rain watered him and the sun warmed him, but he wanted to be tall. "God!" he cried out. "What's happening to me? I'm supposed to be a tall, green beanstalk."

God whispered back. "Wait."

And so the seed waited. He waited another two weeks. Fourteen days and fourteen nights and at last his dream came true. He looked down at himself and he was tall and green and strong with healthy leaves and small white flowers which nodded in the sun. "God!" he cried out. "Thank you for making me a tall, green beanstalk."

God whispered back. "You're welcome."

Be still and wait upon the Lord, ever heard of the saying,
Good things comes to those who wait. Some times we must stand still and wait for
God to make His move. Sometimes the answer is yes and sometimes its no, but
through it all, God knows best. God will always look out after his Children.
God bless you all. Lee

Do not bring anything with a defect, because it will not be accepted on your behalf (Leviticus 22:20)

A faith-inspiring article that really touched my heart. Sometimes when we have to wait is due to the above verse. Sometimes our prayers are defective and selfish and sometimes our worship is defective and yet sometimes our living in God is defective. We really do not understand it but as Holy Spirit reveals it to us, we should always listen to Holy Spirit. We must wait and prepare ourselves to present ourselves to God.

Merry Christmas.

A heart touching article and I was much moved. Yes God gives us blessings when He thinks that we can handle them.

God bless
