Change

Change germinates in darkness
When we start to seek your light.

Peace springs up with forgiveness
Once we glimpse your sacrifice.

Strength slowly grows through sorrow  
While we grasp your mortal fear;

And when our love matures, at last,
Your harvest-time is near.

The kingdom of God is like a farmer who scatters seed on the ground. Night and day, while he’s asleep or awake, the seed sprouts and grows but he does not understand how it happens. The earth produces the crops on its own. First a leaf blade pushes through, then the heads of wheat are formed, and finally the grain ripens. And as soon as the grain is ready, the farmer comes and harvests it with a sickle, for the harvest-time has come (Mark 4:26-9; NLT).

The pain caused you to repent and change your ways (2 Corinthians 7:9; NLT).

This is my blood, which confirms the covenant between God and his people. It is poured out as a sacrifice to forgive the sins of many (Matthew 26:28; NLT).

He [Jesus] prayed more fervently, and he was in such agony of spirit that his sweat fell to the ground like great drops of blood (Luke 22:44; NLT).

The fruit of the Spirit is love (Galatians 5:22; NIV).

Grow to maturity (2 Corinthians 13:11; NLT).

At harvest-time I will tell the reapers, “First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned, but then gather the wheat into my barn (Matthew 13:30; NET).
