One Heart at a Time

Like individual starfish
gathered up, thrown back into the sea
our ministry, our service
in this troubled world
reaching out, reaching
planting seeds of love
in one heart at a time
Reach out, seek
ways to touch even one heart
spreading God’s love
like seeds, thirsty souls
ready for his living waters

One Heart at a Time
The title popped into my head
as I was posting this poem to
This One Will Live

The voices, the world,
not worth the effort
so many starfish, so many miles
unable to change the world.
Ignoring the doubts,
the judgment of the world;
this one will live,
one life at a time
thrown into the sea
toiling as he had been called
To the water’s edge
his purpose, his gift
casting the starfish
into the sea.
Making a difference
once action at a time.
