i decided i’d use my first blog to welcome you to the page and let you know what all this is going to be about…. here, i’ll give you all a chance to peer into my life just a little bit, especially into what i’m experiencing as my life lived out in Jesus Christ unfolds before my eyes, at his command…. i want to let people know that i experience the uncertainty, i experience the pain of doubt, but that i am also assured that transformation is taking place, that my mind and heart are being remade…

my page is named “seed.planted” because Jesus said “unless a seed falls to the ground and dies, it will bear no fruit… but if it falls to the ground and dies, it will bear much fruit…” my life has been planted, and God has done what only he can do: allow me to die to my flesh and be born again by the Holy Spirit. now, what this all means, i’m still learning each and everyday. this explains the address of this blog: “fertile-paradox…” certainly, the word of God which brings salvation to all who believe has fallen on fertile ground; the paradox of course is that my life often exhibits such selfishness, doubt, death, and disobedience that is not the fruit of a life of faith… i have realized my life is a paradox because, while God gives us ultimate responsibility for the fate of our souls, we are at the mercy of forces which are far beyond us… but we can also serve a God whose power is far beyond ours!…
