Soil (Full Album)




I’m so excited to share this project with all of you! It’s been about five years in the making and tells the story of Mark 4, the parable of the seed and the soils. More accurately, it tells the story of letting Jesus really take over my life, bringing me to repentance, rescuing me from panic attacks and anxiety. Over the course of this journey, my full attention shifted to Jesus, to hosting the seed of the Word in me, to working the fields of the Kingdom of God before the harvest, and longing for the return of my Beloved. I am so thankful for all the rocks and thorns the Good Sower had taken out of the soil of my heart while I sat at His feet. He is so incredibly beautiful. I have loved discovering my identity as “Just Soil” the stuff from which Jesus grows and the Living Water of the Holy Spirit flows. He is not finished with us yet, so please pray for me and my family–for the steadfast endurance we need as we purpose to seek His Kingdom first and pursue His work in the world!

“Listen! A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants, so that they did not bear grain. Still other seed fell on good soil. It came up, grew and produced a crop, some multiplying thirty, some sixty, some a hundred times.”

Then Jesus said, “Whoever has ears to hear, let them hear.”

When he was alone, the Twelve and the others around him asked him about the parables. He told them, “The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables so that,

“‘they may be ever seeing but never perceiving,
and ever hearing but never understanding;
otherwise they might turn and be forgiven!’”

Then Jesus said to them, “Don’t you understand this parable? How then will you understand any parable? The farmer sows the word. Some people are like seed along the path, where the word is sown. As soon as they hear it, Satan comes and takes away the word that was sown in them. Others, like seed sown on rocky places, hear the word and at once receive it with joy. But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away. Still others, like seed sown among thorns, hear the word; but the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful. Others, like seed sown on good soil, hear the word, accept it, and produce a crop—some thirty, some sixty, some a hundred times what was sown.”
