"And he said, Whereunto shall we liken the kingdom of God? or with what comparison shall we compare it? It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is sown in the earth, is less than all the seeds that be in the earth: But when it is sown, it groweth up, and becometh greater than all herbs, and shooteth out great branches; so that the fowls of the air may lodge under the shadow of it." (Mark 4:30-32

Jesus compares the workings of the kingdom of God to planting seeds in the earth. "When the seed is sown," He said, "it grows up...."

Notice He didn't say that it would occasionally grow up. Or it grows up if it's God's will. He said, "It grows up and becomes greater." Period.

God's economy isn't like ours. It isn't up one day and down the other. It's always the same and it always works perfectly. If you have good earth, good seed and good water, you're going to have growth. It's inevitable.

So, if you're facing a need, don't panic... plant a seed!

That seed may take the form of money or time or some other resources you have to give. But, no matter what form it takes, make sure you put life in it by giving it in faith and surrounding it with praise and worship. Say, "Lord, as I bring You my goods, I bring myself. I give myself to You--spirit, soul and body."

Pray over that seed. Fill it with faith, worship and the Word. Then plant it. You can rest assured--it will grow up and become greater!

I hope my seed starts to grow quickly so that I can plant more. I believe that the book I wrote is a seed - as far as me telling the possibility of women being chaste in singleness and in marriage - and then hoping that they will take the book and pray when they are tempted to believe the lie that the grass is greener on the other side - and they instead follow the model of the book - which are women praying similarly like the woman at the well - who Jesus told was not a chaste woman, but a very busybody with men. Jesus cleared her up of that problem when He offered her - living water - while we were yet sinners Christ died for us, and she accepted the living water into her heart.

Nowadays, 21st century women can receive Living Water into their Spirit that never runs dry and stop believing the lie that sex is a part of the life - and everybody is doing it, so we mind as well go ahead and do it - I have heard such bogus from professed Christians when I was in my youth - and this propelled me at the age of twenty-five to come up with my own movement.

I could not believe that Christians have a human weakness or hormones inside will lead us to continue to sin. I went on fasting and prayers until I brought my body into subjection a few years later totally - no sex and remained that way for almost a decade. I want to be able to share the book and my personal insight and true life stories all over the world, but I don't really know how to market myself.

My book was published in February 11, 2008 and it is available in Barnes & Nobles and all stores that sell retail books, so it is a major blessing - However, there is much more about it than just a book for women to read doing intercessory praying,

I am hoping that women vow to become a Chaste Disciple 4 Christ and leave the lifestyle of a busybody at the well like the woman in Samaria - who was shocked that Jesus being a Jew would ask her a question when Jews have no dealing with Samaritans.

Thank God for Jesus being led of the Holy Spirit and her chance for salvation even though she was once living for her flesh now she can live for her new life in Christ.
