Sunday Seed Thoughts: What Seeds Are You Sowing?

“When I keep my thoughts positive and my words affirmative, I create an environment that produces positive action. I become the fertile ground for abundant good to manifest,” wrote the authors of Daily Word.

“Into the matrix of spiritual substance, I plant seed thoughts… Seeds of light fill me with new insights…Seeds of love show up in my world as harmony and peace.”

“In prayer, I plant seed thoughts and carry them with me throughout the day. I choose positive words that take hold, grow, and produce an abundant harvest of good. I am blessed and I give thanks for each blessing!”

Indeed thoughts are powerful. Life-changing. And character forming. The wise man’s aphorism affirms this fact: “As he thinks, in his heart, so is he” (Prov. 23:7). This principle prompted James A. Allen to pronounce, “Thought and character are one.”

Growing up on the farm in Central Indiana I learned that if you plant seed corn, you will reap corn. If you plant bean seed, you will reap beans. And if you plant watermelon seeds, you get to enjoy a juicy, tasty watermelon on a hot summer day.

What is true in nature, is true spiritually. The Bible warns and reminds us of this principle.

“Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.” (Gal. 6:7-8)

What seed thoughts are you sowing into your mind? Your heart? Your soul?

What are you reading? Watching? Thinking? Listening to? These seeds, watered and fertilized, will eventually reap a harvest. Every single one of them.

You have the power of choice to decide what seeds you sow in your mind that will profoundly impact your life and affect your future. Ralph Waldo Emerson is credited with this succinct and powerful observation that ought to challenge and correctly channel our thinking.

“Sow a thought and you reap an action;
Sow an act and you reap a habit;
Sow a habit and you reap a character;
Sow a character and you reap a destiny.”

–Ken Weliever, The Preacherman

  1. Thank you for sharing; I also went on your daily prayer link and read on Myrtle’s healing and the start of the prayer ministry Praise the Lord!

    Some consider two out of three three admonitions in 2 Tim.4:2 to be “negative,” but if we hold them fast they are the form of “sound words.” They are all “words of truth and soberness” (2 Tim. 1:13; cf. 1 Tim. 1:3b.; 4:1-3, 6, 11, 13-16; Titus 1:9; 2:1,11-16.) In that same vein compare and contrast Galatians 5:19-23, and also 1 Cor. 10:5-11 and chapter 13.
    Which of those Scriptures are positive and which are negative? They are all the essence of the gospel, the words of the Holy Spirit of God (Jn. 16:8). As such, we dare not try to “emphasize the positive and eliminate the negatve.”
