Though [the mustard seed] is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants. - Matthew 13:32 (NIV)
In the 1940s, Floyd Smith ordered a small packet of bamboo shoots in the mail and planted them on his property in Prattville, Alabama. Today, his land is preserved as a county park, and visitors can enjoy what is now a thick bamboo forest with plants standing over sixty feet...
God can grow small seeds of faith into a forest.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
