Welcome! Why did I choose the title Wheat or Weeds? Well it comes out of Matthew 13:24-30. Here’s what it says:
24 Jesus told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. 25 But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. 26 When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared.
27 “The owner’s servants came to him and said, ‘Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?’
28 “‘An enemy did this,’ he replied.
“The servants asked him, ‘Do you want us to go and pull them up?’
29 “‘No,’ he answered, ‘because while you are pulling the weeds, you may uproot the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.’”
This very much describes my spiritual journey over the last 4 years. There has been so much wheat in my life, but has been difficult to see because of the weeds that were also there. Ultimately, God decided to leave the weeds in my life not to torment me, but if the weeds were pulled out, the wheat would have been uprooted as well. And that would have been tragic
I look forward to updating the blog once a week. Some of the topics I look to cover are: profiting through suffering, why does God allow suffering, sharing my experience and much more! If you have any suggestions, feel free to contact me. It is my hope that this blog serves as a source of inspiration to you whether you are currently on the mountain top or down in the valley.
Grace and Peace,
